My Reddit Birthday – Pet Project
This is going to be a pretty short one, but I thought it was kinda cool, so I am sharing it.
As an avid user of Reddit for a few years, I started wondering when my “Reddit Birthday” is – Forgive me, I am admittedly a nerd. After some digging, I came across a simple API that spits out the information of any given user. Then I figured: others may not know about this, why not build a simple tool letting them quickly and easily look it up.
I use a CURL to retrieve the .json file, and spit out the information, then pull the response using ajax to the clean query page. That is, it is supposed to work like that, there is really nothing I can do about Reddit’s fragile servers going down because of a stiff breeze.
