I have a lot of saved posts on Reddit. The problem with that is that there are SO many posts that I don’t want to even go through them to find that one post that I saved for later a month ago. Not only that, there’s also a limit to how many saved posts you can have per account (I think 1000). A lot of the posts I had saved a year+ ago are now gone.
So I wrote a tool that will pull all of your saved posts, and let you either copy them to another account or export them to a file (html/csv). It also lets you export them based on which subreddit they are in, which domain they link to, etc. Just select the row that you want to filter, check “Match selected rows,” and you’re set. NOW I can save all of my r/food posts to my Evernote, for example (export to HTML, save that file as a note). I don’t have to worry about losing my precious posts again. :)
This was a lot of fun for me because I’ve never worked with the Reddit API (or ANY API other than my own, really), so I learned a lot in that area. It was mostly a personal project, but I took some time to clean it up and comment the code the best I could so somebody else might benefit from it.
I have it hosted here on github. The actual binary files are in the downloads section. There’s also an example HTML file that has some exported posts.
