Mark Dain "We rewrote mobile.twitter.com to not suck" basically. It's much faster and snappier now, although nowhere near performance
Nicholas Pezolano They built it on top of google (PWA) progressive web apps developer tools which I found interesting as well.

Martijn That looks pretty good. Better than Facebook Lite, which is an app they only made available to low-end devices, this is at least accessible to all. The addition of browser notifications is definitely a big plus.

Martijn I prefer running through my own processes for converting Markdown. Pandoc has been real good to me, both for Markdown-PDF and handling MathJax in the process.
Nicholas Pezolano Thanks I also found GitBook which looked interesting. I'll do more research myself and follow up.

🤔 John Relieved to see the Dutch election results coming in tonight. It somehow feels like the slide towards chaos is no longer accelerating.
Nicholas Pezolano Not sure if you saw but this caused VSTOXX to plummet, interesting with French election in April as well.

☕ David Antoine I've read a lot of good things about Python, must be nice to start with. I guess I should stay with the standard cPython implementation. I've read PyPy is faster thanks to its JiT compiler but honestly it's just to start learning the language... Thanks for the link !
Nicholas Pezolano If you are just starting, don't worry about cPython or PyPy, just the core language.

Nicholas Pezolano Anyone ever publish a book using markdown with MathJax? I'm interested in your experience and what you used! I was looking into leanpub vs a self made process.

Mark Dain Hacker News, Sublevel, and Pinboard are detox in a world full of bloated JavaScript heavy websites. Very glad to be using what feels like the web equivalent of coreutils; light, fast, do one thing - do it well
Mark Dain There was at one point... I don't know what happened to it. The code is here though: github.com/lucianm...
Nicholas Pezolano Ah I get it now the suggested way is to use RSS feeds, they suggest using this app for iOS gethooksapp.com

Nicholas Pezolano Curious why is there no sublevel app in the iOS store ?
Mark Dain There was at one point... I don't know what happened to it. The code is here though: github.com/lucianm...
🦿 Lucian Marin Source code for the iPhone app is available, but the app isn't in the App Store. I think paying $100/year for an Apple developer account is way too much.
Martijn You're already looking at the app, just pin it to your homescreen and you are done!

🤔 John Hello World! I saw Lucian's shameless self promotion in the weekly "How would Hacker News fix Twitter?" thread and thought I'd check this out. A+ so far.
Nicholas Pezolano I'm here for the same reason and loving it so far.

Nicholas Pezolano Are there active financial, tech or VC users here like on Twitter?
Martijn I think there are a lot of tech users here. As far as financial goes, I think is an economist and I used to study (macro) economics.
🤔 John I worked in VC for a bit.
