I'm using an API wrapper called Snoowrap for NodeJS that enables me to hit the Reddit API. I wanted Reddreader to be a weekly update, and you can't grab specific weeks in the past using the wrapper, so Reddreader will contain content from the 36th week of 2017 onwards. I might do a 'best of Subreddit X 2017' at the end of the year.
I'm using Snoowrap to grab results via the Reddit API. There are definitely better methods - such as using Request & Cheerio to properly scrape web pages then parse the text, but TBH for this project I wanted to keep it simple. Down the line I might look into a more intense method of scraping results.
Angular 4+, Angular CLI, NodeJS, Express, Bootstrap 4, Snoowrap and much, much more! Check out the package.json over at Github.

I've been coding for just over 4 years properly - I tried to learn on & off for over a decade but didn't really start to understand how to really code things until I decided to just start building a project. That was the best decision I made in terms of learning to code - tutorials, books and videos can only take you so far. Just code baby!
That isn't a question. 😒
