client for 2channel (2ch)

February 7, 2008

 so, because of the super-ugly appearance of 2channel and because it is so unintuitive to always refresh your browser to keep up with the thread in there, i thought of writing a client for it. well, of course there are other clients that is available for it as my friends have told me once. but, then after looking for a while, i know that there’s client that’s based on .Net. furthermore, there’s none for WPF. so, i thought it might be nice if i can make one.

 however, looking at how 2channel works, i began to wonder if there is a special API for this to work. i mean, if there are clients outthere, it’s not too much hoping somekind of ‘backdoor’ like webservice or rss feed available, isn’t it? my search returns me nothing. oh well, maybe it is unofficial or seldom discussed API or something, so i looked up at 2ch free open source clients and pop the source code open on my VS…. to my suprise, they’re all parsing the html page and building their request strings manually (doh). it seems that 2ch doesnt have an API from which a client can hook-up to. plzzzzzz give us an API.

 btw here’s the clients that i’ve been talking about:
