Are you a Redditor? Do you use Ruby? Do you want to view the subreddits in which a particular user commonly posts? If you answered “yes” to all three of these questions, then usaidwat is the gem for you!


usaidwat can be installed via RubyGems:

$ gem install usaidwat


A usaidwat binary is installed with the gem. usaidwat will analyze a user’s last 100 comments and provide statistics.

To list a count of subreddits in which a user has posted, simply plug in a username:

# usaidwat jedberg

You will see output like the following:

blog                  26
funny                 15
unitedkingdom         12
Random_Acts_Of_Pizza  11
AskReddit             7
entertainment         4
politics              4

Frugal                3

Which indicates that jedberg has commented in /r/funny 15 times (out of his last 100 comments).
