/* Hacker News Search Script
*
* Original Script by Kristopolous:
* https://gist.github.com/kristopolous/19260ae54967c2219da8
*
* Usage:
* First, copy the script into your browser's console whilst on the Hacker News
* jobs page. Then, you can use the query function to filter the results.
*
* For example,
* query(AND('python', 'remote')) // Finds remote python jobs
* query(OR('python', javascript')) // Finds jobs using python or js.
*
* You can also stack logical operators. For example:
* query(AND('remote', OR('python', 'javascript'))) // Remote python or js.
*
* Supported logical operators:
* NOT, not The logical NOT / inverse operator:
* True if the sole operand is false.
* AND, and The logical AND / conjunction operator:
* All operands must be true.
* OR, IOR, or, ior The logical (inclusive) OR / disjunction:
* Any operand is true.
* XOR, EXOR, xor, exor The logial exclusive OR / disjunction:
* Precisely one of the two inputs is true.
*
* In addition, most of these operators have a negated version. (Usually by
* prepending N or n to the name.)

// Presuming a string, build a function to check.
var my_regex = new RegExp(arg.toString(), 'i');

I love your take on this script. The ability to say "not('x')" is very helpful.

Hey @meiamsome , thanks for the helpful work!
Had to change the display function to make it work:

  function display(node, what) {
    up_to(node, 'athing comtr ').style.display = what;
  }

Hey all,

Just updated the script to use arrow functions, added some usage help as requested by @adomasven and fixed the issue reported by @colobas. If your browser doesn't support the arrow functions, the old version is available in the revisions page.
