Minimal reddit API wrapper

Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import redditor from '';



A minimal wrapper for the reddit API. It manages the session tokens, rate limiting and JSON parsing, otherwise it just passes on the raw response from reddit.

npm install redditor


It supports both doing anonymouse and authorized requests.

var reddit = require('redditor');

reddit.get('/r/funny.json', function(err, response) {
    if(err) throw err;
    console.log(response); // response is a Javascript object

Login using username and password.

    username: 'test_username',
    password: 'test_password'
}, function(err, authorized) {
    // Note that the returned object and the main reddit instance are not the same

    if(err) throw err;
    authorized.get('/api/me.json', function(err, response) {
        // ...

Or using username, cookie and modhash directly.

var authorized = reddit({
    username: 'test_username',
    cookie: 'test_cookie',
    modhash: 'test_modhash'

If needed the data can also be streamed using the returned instance.'/api/new_captcha').pipe(fs.createWriteStream('captcha.png'));
