Telescope is a free, open-source web application that makes it easy for anybody to launch their own community.
With Telescope, you can set up a site like Product Hunt or Hacker News in minutes. And you'll then be able to tweak your app's layout, colors, and branding without having to write a single line of code.
Choose from a grid or list layout, and pick either a top menu or side navigation.
Telescope uses Embedly to fetch thumbnails and descriptions for your links.
Rank posts by date, popularity, or display them in a day-by-day view.
Telescope supports over 15 languages, with more on the way.
Telescope's default theme is fully responsive and mobile-ready.
