Newsmelon update#4

I haven’t been able to work much for the past week due to illness and other responsibilities, but I managed to put in a nice 6hr chunk of time in yesterday and today. As a result, I’ve hooked up live reddit data from r/news, established basic story retrieval with the Node API, modified the front-end to accept the data, and created a rudimentary setup for search with elastic search. A nice uninterrupted 10p-4am can be so much better than several short bursts in the daytime sometimes!

I estimate this chunk completed maybe 10% of the front-end and 20% of the web server. I’ll do the alph ETA calculation later. Here are some shots with live datamelona_live_1

The new stody detail page with populated data. I need to clean up the keyword extraction and images.

The front page. The reddit data mining runs periodically so there can be live updates to the site. (server push coming soon)

the elastic search powering the search page was remarkably easier than my previous approach, building from scratch with Lucene.
