A Soothing Frontend for the Effective Altruism Forum
forum.nunosempere.com is a frontend for the Effective Altruism Forum. It aims to present EA Forum posts in a way which I personally find soothing. It achieves that that goal at the cost of pretty restricted functionality—like not having a frontpage, or not being able to make or upvote comments and posts.
Instead of having a frontpage, this frontend merely has an endpoint:
https://forum.nunosempere.com/posts/[post id]/[optional post slug]
An example post—chosen to be a link post so that you can see both the article and the comments—looks like this:
- Clicking on an article’s or on a comment’s timestamp directs to their location on the original EA Forum.
- I am choosing not to have a frontpage because it would just add additional development time to a hobby project, and because it doesn’t support my use case. My usecase is just being subscribed via rss, and displaying forum posts which interest me in this new frontend.
- On the topic of rss, this frontend has an rss endpoint at forum.nunosempere.com/feed: it piggybacks off the ea.greaterwrong.com RSS feed.
- Other alternatives to the EA Forum known to me are the aforementioned ea.greaterwrong.com as well as eaforum.issarice.com.
