Description

A basic workflow to browse subreddits.

The subreddit search,

r/
, uses Reddit's API to search for subreddits that match
. 25 results are retrieved by default.

The subreddit search can be a bit odd, which is due to the legendary crapness of Reddit's search function.

Search within a subreddit,

r/subreddit/
, only filters the list of hot results. 50 results are retrieved by default.

Configuration

There are a couple of options in the workflow's configuration sheet.

Set

NSFW
to
1
to include subreddits marked "over 18" in search results.

Set

QUICKLOOK_POST
to
1
for the Quick Look preview to show the article instead of the Reddit comment page.

Licensing, thanks etc.

Alfred-Reddit is released under the MIT Licence.

I found the logo in a Font Awesome issue on GitHub.

It's heavily based on Alfred-Workflow, also MIT-licensed.
