AlienFeed: Reading Reddit with Python

logged by @logbot 2013-11-19T13:58:21Z permalink #python

Jared Wright is an impressive high school student who has created a command line interface to Reddit.

AlienFeed is a simple, but effective, way of interacting with Reddit and takes advantage of Python's ability to open items in your web browser for you. It comes with a man page (unlike some Python CLIs) and a custom set of bash completions.

To try it out: pip install alienfeed.

Here is screenshot to whet your appetite:
