So, I have been wondering for a while about what it would take to create an offline reader for discourse. I know many people think its not necessary but ‘different strokes for different folk’ - for me personally it would be super useful.
Recently I decided to have a go and this is the result:
Now, a big massive warning: this is only a PROOF OF CONCEPT!!! It looks terrible and has about 6.5 million bugs but the basic functionality is there.
I will improve it over the coming weeks but I’m sharing it at this early stage to get some initial feedback about the idea. Is the basic idea sound? Would you use it? Is there something about my approach that is fundamentally wrong?
You can have a peek through the code here:
Again, please bear with me as this is just a proof of concept. There are a lot of small things I need to fix in the code so I’m not looking for detailed feedback at this stage but I am interested in general feedback about the concept and if anyone might be interested in working with me on it.
