Feeding Reddit

Screen Shot 2014-01-23 at 1.49.22 AMFollowing up on my last post, I actually was able to syndicate all the Reddit threads I have upvoted into a subsite of bavatuesdays: reddit.bavatuedays.com. I haven’t upvoted any comments just yet, so we’ll see if they come along as well. This was simple to do because Reddit provides an excellent guide to how feeds work on their site.You can pretty much get a feed for anything you append .rss to.

As for your more personal information like threads and comments you’ve liked, disliked, hidden, etc., they have private RSS and JSON that you can access and feed out to another space, which is what I did. Dead simple.

Now that I have aggregated my tumblr re-blogs, starred posts in my reader, and the threads I liked on Reddit, I’m ready to start imagining how to start mashing it all together so that it can be a constant stream of what I’m digging online.

    I had no idea Reddit provided feeds for all that stuff. That makes it a hell of a discovery bookmarking tool. Also because I’m APIboy these days: JSON!!!
