Reddit Scraper using Reddit API (unblocked) (outdated)
totally not created to unblock reddit nope couldn't be me
Use the new one here: https://repl.it/talk/share/ScrapeR-v3-Unblock-reddit-through-snoowrap/25920
This is awesome, also actually unblocks reddit in school! Only complaint is that when I click posts sometimes it loads random posts, typically one up or one down, other than that it is fantastic and showcases just how powerful flask can be.
@hunter12756 ah i know why. basically when you click the back button, it loads the same page, but the database updates because it gets the stuff in hot, which is subject to change. if you click that green button with the subreddit at the top of the post list, then you refresh the list. sorry about that!
honestly this is so cool its a shame my school blocked it ( i can still view it on repl tho)
I agree!. This is a great way to view reddit at school, and it works very well, except for one issue. I don't know if this is my school's fault, but when I try to load it, it just pops up with a page that says, Hmmmm.... We Couldn't Reach Your Repl
Make sure your repl has a port open and is ready to receive HTTP traffic. Can you try and fix this? Otherwise, this is just great!
Great Job with V3! This makes Scraper even better. One bug or limitation i found is that subrettits only show about 50 or so posts down before it stops and doesnt load more. other that that great repl! A YouTube scraper would be cool too
OP just wanted to let you know that pretty much everyone in my school uses this now lol, this code is helping us make it through this last 2 years thank you.
@nithilan4 thank you so much! That's awesome. Btw I wanted to ask, how hard was it do do something of this level? I'm at a high school level of programming so I'd probably not understand but could you give a estimate of what kind of a level I'd have to be in to be able to do something like this? And again, thank you so much dude
