This application is a comfortable reader application for news.ycombinator.com. Its intended for the new Librem 5 smartphone from Purism but is not restricted to that. Actually it is a Gtk application usable in every form factor. I try to keep that convergence where its possible. Source


Based on Python and GTK3/libhandy before 0.4.0.
