A Positive Hacker News RSS Feed


Tech news can often be overwhelmingly negative. Scrolling through HackerNews, I often feel myself getting angrier at the state of the industry with each headline I read.

I don't want to give up on the amazing content I'm discovering every day on this platform, so I built an alternative RSS feed for HackerNews. It selectively presents stories that have a positive sentiment, making my news-reading experience more enjoyable and less stressful. Here's a link to the feed:


It's not a pretty link, but who looks at the link of an RSS feed anyway? ;)

I don't want to urge anyone to stop reading HackerNews, but if you also struggle with seeing the bright side of tech, this could be a nice alternative.


The source code behind this project can be found on GitHub. It's licensed as MIT, so feel free to fork and build your own feed. Happy hacking!
