Private front-end for Reddit
Ensure Reddit always loads the old design
If you access Reddit via https://old.reddit.com it's always the old UI. Bonus is that this works even if you're not signed in.
There's a handy browser extension for automatically redirecting you if you click a link to Reddit's other domains: https://github.com/tom-james-watson/old-reddit-redirect
If you'd like to disable custom subreddit styles even if you're not signed in, you can add these custom filters to uBlock Origin:
OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels. Quickly and easily build and deploy open source unikernels in tens of seconds. Deploy in any language to any cloud.
Slide is an open-source, ad-free Reddit browser for Android.
Available under GPLv3 ever since I remember, and always had fantastic UX (assuming RedReader has reached parity with latest update)
🐀 Building a federated link aggregator in rust
the reddit experience is unbelievably crappy.
yet its huge popularity seems to suggest that it has gotten something right. the other social media and privacy sinkholes (facebook, twitter, linkedin etc) and in particular their uncontrollable "timeline" concept seem to have some design (as opposed to execution) issue.
btw there is an open source fediverse version called lemmy. Build the future you want to live in and all that...
The open-source platform for independent internet communities.
Friendly reminder that the entire site is a bait & switch scam:
>We want to democratize the traditional model by giving editorial control to the people who use the site, not those who run it.

>We will tirelessly defend the right to freely share information on reddit in any way we can, even if it is offensive or discusses something that may be illegal.
>— u/reddit 2012
>We stand for free speech. This means we are not going to ban distasteful subreddits. We will not ban legal content even if we find it odious or if we personally condemn it. Not because that's the law in the United States - because as many people have pointed out, privately-owned forums are under no obligation to uphold it - but because we believe in that ideal independently, and that's what we want to promote on our platform. We are clarifying that now because in the past it wasn't clear, and (to be honest) in the past we were not completely independent and there were other pressures acting on reddit. Now it's just reddit, and we serve the community, we serve the ideals of free speech, and we hope to ultimately be a universal platform for human discourse (cat pictures are a form of discourse).

And I currently have this gem of a notification sitting in my inbox:
>Important notification about your account
>Your account has been suspended from Reddit for breaking the rules. The suspension will last 3 day(s).
>You recently upvoted a post or comment that was determined to be against our policies. Abusive content is not acceptable on reddit, nor is engaging with it. Please be thoughtful about the content you interact with.
>This is an automated message; responses will not be received by Reddit admins.
Note that they don't tell you what the content was. They clearly want you to become fearful about expressing yourself, or even using the site, and engage in self censorship. They're one of the most dishonest and awful companies in America. Who the fuck knows what the content even was. Probably some edgy meme from PoliticalCompassMemes, which thankfully has a backup here: https://ruqqus.com/+PoliticalCompassMemes

I forked old reddit redirect plugin to redirect to teddit.net: https://github.com/0xbsec/teddit-redirect
Review removed content on reddit. Uses the Pushshift API, built on code from removeddit.
Reddit's biggest dark pattern is showing your removed comments as if they are not removed when you are logged in. You can try and see it for yourself here . I built a site primarily with this issue in mind .
Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.
