An alternative way to browse LessWrong 2.0

4 saturn 19 February 2018 02:10AM

This is something I’ve been tinkering with for a while, but I think it’s now complete enough to be generally useful. It’s an alternative frontend for LessWrong 2.0, using the GraphQL API.

 

Features:

  • Fast, even on low-end computers and phones

  • Quickly jump to new comments in a thread with the “.” and “,” keys

  • Archive view makes it easy to browse the best posts of years past

  • Always shows every comment in a thread, no need to “load more”

  • Log in and post using your existing username and password, or create a new account

  • Simple markdown editor

  • Typography enhancements

  • Switch between fixed-width and fluid layouts and several different themes

  • Easily view a comment’s ancestors without scrolling by hovering over the left edge of a comment tree

Thanks to Said Achmiz for designing the themes and writing much of the frontend JavaScript.
