About

Blogify is a set of scripts that aims to automatically gather links posted to www.reddit.com/r/videos and archive them for later viewing.

Currently the reddit mods don’t like me having ads up to pay for hosting – so a bitcoin tip would be very much appreciated.

Blogify was built partly for the experience, partly for fun, and partly because sometimes I miss the cool videos that made the top of the page if I don’t get to check reddit for a while.

My reasons for open sourcing the project are:

  • I want to get familiar with ‘open source’ and the related workflows and paradigms.
  • I want to build something portfolio worthy, and have a place to put it, but…
  • I don’t want to work on it alone.
  • I’ve made the basic script and it probably wont get any attention otherwise.

So far I have:

  • coded and hand tested the proof of concept
  • commented the scripts as best as I can
  • set up the blog and script on a public domain
  • Inserted an MIT license in the code
  • set up a public repository and committed the code

The repository is at https://github.com/aido179/blogify
