A lightweight alternative frontend for Reddit.

GitHub Tag Build License

Official instance:

  • Lightweight
  • No ads
  • Compact design (closer to than to the redesign)
  • Better mobile support
  • No need to register for an OAuth2 identifier for self-hosting: mimic the official Android app by default to bypass rate-limiting.

Inspired by Nitter, an alternative frontend for Twitter.

Written with Python & Starlette.


You can use the official instance at

Like Nitter, the URLs are identical to reddit, so if you can just replace by to open a Reddit page in eddrit.

Deployment (for self-hosting)

You can also deploy eddrit for yourself if you don't want to use the public instance.

Docker (recommended)

You can get the image from either:

There are multiple tags:

  • latest for the latest stable tagged release (recommended)
  • dev for the latest development version (the latest commit on the master branch)
  • Version tags (like 0.1.1, 0.1.2) for specific versions

The following architectures are supported by the Docker image:

  • linux/amd64
  • linux/i386
  • linux/arm64
  • linux/arm/v7
  • linux/ppc64le

Without Docker

If you know how to deploy a Python ASGI application, you can also deploy it directly without Docker.

For example, with gunicorn:

  1. Make sure Python >=3.12 is installed on your system as it's the minimum version supported by eddrit.
  2. Install Poetry which is used to manage dependencies of the project.
  3. Download/clone the repository and run poetry install --only main to install the application.
  4. You can then run the app through gunicorn, for example with the following command: poetry run gunicorn -w 4 -k uvicorn.workers.UvicornWorker -b


The application can be configured through environment variables (if a .env file is present, it will also be read).

eddrit needs a valkey instance to work. You need specify the connection url with the VALKEY_URL environment variable (or in your env file).

The following configuration parameters are also available:

  • DEBUG (default is false): enable starlette debug mode. Should not be needed outside of development.
  • LOG_LEVEL (default is WARNING): only log if the message level is superior or equal to this level.


If you wish to support the app, donations are possible here.
