Simple Reddit Reader
Simple Reddit Reader using Flask and MongoDB.
I love to read reddit. I'm on the reddit website daily. A majority of my news and information comes from reddit. But let's face it, their website looks awful. Like a reddit'er threw up their sushi lunch all over it.
To make reading reddit a bit more pleasurable, I have created this simple reddit reader.
The subreddits I read most regularly are stored as a dictionary in app.py.
I display the keys for the subreddit dict in the sidebar navigation as a means to filter the reddit data. I can pass the subreddit filter to the reddit_filter route and reduce the number of articles returned in the view.
You can also delete articles and duplicate entries.
- improve filter
- sort options
- rework the get new stories function so it's not just a random choice of subreddits.
