Stack Apps is a question and answer site for apps, scripts, and development with the Stack Exchange API. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Feature implemented and this script retired

This script is no longer needed since this feature is now built-in. This post will remain here for historical purposes.


Live Home Page is a simple UserScript that updates the home page of any Stack Exchange site with questions as they are asked. Any activity on a question will bump it to the top of the home page and some nice jQuery animations will proudly announce its arrival! This script is very easy to use: just install it and visit the home page of a Stack Exchange site.

You can download the script here:


Live Home Page runs on any browser that supports UserScripts. That includes Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Opera. Internet Explorer users need to find a new browser (just kidding, but there is currently no method of running a UserScript in IE that I know of).

It's awesome how you give your personal email for contact & support. Have you considered open sourcing the script on github and using the github issue tracker for that kind of service. – Raynos Nov 25 '11 at 3:23
@Raynos: It is open-source, but at such a small size I don't know if it's worth opening up a GitHub account and registering it there (I usually use Launchpad for code hosting). Feel free to post an answer or comment if you have any questions, suggestions, or bug reports. – Nathan Osman Nov 25 '11 at 3:25
github was just an example, I was an off-hand recomendation that some kind of web based system like launchpad / github / google code might be more suitable then personal email. – Raynos Nov 25 '11 at 3:35
Useful script, thanks! Two suggestions I would like: 1) some sort of visual indication (perhaps temporary) of questions that have just been loaded. When more than as screen-full of new questions loads, it can take a moment to find your place. 2) abbreviation to kviews. View counts over 1000 are slightly overflowing their column. – Jeremy Banks Nov 25 '11 at 4:09
@JeremyBanks: Thanks! I'll see if those two issues can be fixed. – Nathan Osman Nov 25 '11 at 4:34
Please update this so tag pages get updated too. :) e.g. – George Duckett Nov 25 '11 at 8:37
Aww, no question highlighting for favorite tags. :( – user7829 Aug 25 '12 at 9:01
