CLI Reddit client written in C. Oh, crossplatform too!

How to build

Current required libraries are libcurl and libncursesw (Wide-character version of libncurses). The project itself comprises a library called libreddit and a program called creddit.

To do a normal compilation, run the two commands: make and make install

Note: 'make install' will need to be run as root to install to the root directory.

If you would like to compile libreddit on its own as a shared library, you can run make libreddit. The resulting shared library will be ./build/libreddit.so. You can also install the library separately via make libreddit_install. To use the library, include "reddit.h" and link against libreddit.so.

To see other documented compilation options, read the top comments in ./Makefile.
