Try it at home

In order to fetch the images, simply run python3 fetch.py. This script requires three librairies: pip install Pillow python-resize-image tqdm.

Several variables in fetch.py allow you to select subreddits, posts limit, timeranges... You can also, of course, edit the slideshow speed in js/scripts.js.

Then, just open index.html with your favorite browser!
