DEV.to meets WTFutil (4 Part Series)

Not so long ago I discovered wtfutil an amazing developer oriented tool to monitor, check and browse a lot of stuff, it operates with modules and there is a module that I always find very useful called news.
This modules allows you to see a list of the latest HackerNews articles and if you decide it is interesting enough, you can click on it and it will open the related article on your default browser, which for me is amazing because anyway I'm checking the website every day.
It is basically this daily routine what got me thinking, which other websites I'm checking often to be up to date with news around the tech world, here is where I had an Eureka moment and though well if this thing is not out yet, lets create it.
First of all I love to share the few things I know, even if its not the best way of doing it I'll share it, and then when someone says hey this can be also done this way, I learn something new, and this is a golden cycle you should try, so for me this will be like a tutorial series on how to approach this from the initial project directory, till having the tool ready to be used by the wtfutil users.
So stay tuned.
