    redditor

    A minimal wrapper for the reddit API. It manages the session tokens, rate limiting and JSON parsing, otherwise it just passes on the raw response from reddit.

    npm install redditor
    

    Usage

    It supports both doing anonymouse and authorized requests.

    var reddit = require('redditor');
     
    reddit.get('/r/funny.json', function(err, response) {
        if(err) throw err;
        console.log(response); // response is a Javascript object
    });

    Login using username and password.

    reddit({
        username: 'test_username',
        password: 'test_password'
    }, function(err, authorized) {
        // Note that the returned object and the main reddit instance are not the same
     
        if(err) throw err;
        authorized.get('/api/me.json', function(err, response) {
            // ...
        });
    });

    Or using username, cookie and modhash directly.

    var authorized = reddit({
        username: 'test_username',
        cookie: 'test_cookie',
        modhash: 'test_modhash'
    });

    If needed the data can also be streamed using the returned instance.

    reddit.post('/api/new_captcha').pipe(fs.createWriteStream('captcha.png'));
