Telescope 0.9.9

A powerful news aggregation system, letting users share links with their friends, and browse community-voted stories and articles
Telescope was inspired and modeled after services like HackerNews, Digg, Reddit, or SlashDot.

The entire news aggregator was built on top of Meteor, a powerful JavaScript framework for building mobile and desktop applications.

Just like the aforementioned services, Telescope works the same, requiring users to register before they can submit any stories or vote on existing ones.

Main features:

  • Works in real-time
  • User authentication system
  • Anyone can submit news
  • Social sharing features
  • Markdown syntax formatting
  • Day by day viewing
  • Organize news in categories
  • Rate limit
  • Notifications
  • Responsive design
  • Mobile friendly
