  • Ask HN: How does HN determine the site that a submission belongs to?
    2 projects | | 8 Sep 2023
    I'm sure this must have been asked before, but I can't find the answer anywhere.

    Here on HN, every link that is submitted has a site that it belongs to, which is shown to the left of the title, in parentheses. Usually it's just the domain name, but sometimes it includes part of the path, e.g. for a submission like, the site would be

    How is this implemented? Is there a list somewhere of the sites to treat differently (like or, and if so, is that list publicly available? If not, is there a similar list that someone maintains that I could use for a side project?

    Ruby on Rails is a full-stack web application framework. With Rails, you can build a website that can access your database's data, return as API payload or render them on the user's browser easily and safely. The Rails Guide is the user manual for developers to learn how to use Rails. The Rails Guide is also a crowd-creation and is in the same repository on GitHub. It has very high quality because it is reviewed and modified again and again by numerous seasoned Rails developers. For anyone who wants to learn Ruby on Rails, I will definitely recommend they read the guide first.

    This cannot be statically analyzed. And this is not a made-up example either! It comes from the Rails project here:

    This makes it impossible to statically determine the direct dependency requirements of a project.

    > Now we have [your dependencies and their current versions], [target rails version], [all of the runtime dependency constraints of these gems]. We run this through a dependency resolution algorithm (pubgrub). If it resolves then you're good to upgrade to that version of Rails without changing anything.
