This is beautiful @trys! One minor detail I found, exporting data in mobile Safari does not work well (can't download the JSON file). What would be a good alternative for exporting my data from mobile safari?

@kristianmuniz Thank you! Oh that's not great! I can probably swap to .txt files (with JSON still inside) and see how that fares. One of the biggest HackerNews requests was syncing (which I'm still pondering over) so that could help too.

Looks good. How about iOS Devices?

@baidoct Thanks! It's all web-based so iOS users should be good to go - and latest version of Safari support Service Workers so they should even get full offline support!

It would be nice to allow the date format to leverage the primary locale of the browser.

Sweet product! i think it would be really nice to have an option to change to some diary, or scenic theme..or simple colored theme per one's own taste. Good to have a simple offline based product!

@singhpankaj99 Thanks so much! I'll add 'improve the theme picker' to the backlog.
