This is the
readme.md for a Ruby on Rails application that mimics social news link sharing websites like HackerNews, ProductHunt, and Reddit.
Obviously the styling is different but the base functionality exists.
Because when i was learning to program, I wanted to play with code that had a familiar model and get some instant gratification.
The problem with learning to code is the learning-curve. Shit is real and painful and i found that the best cure for the pain was cloning an app with features and tweaking until it broke and learning along the way.
I think this is why wordpress is SO popular. Its stupid-easy to fire-up, and changes come with one-click package installs and tiny code changes.
My main goal for this is to give new programmers some code to look at and talk about. Anytime i get questions, I plan to add them here...
