[Teddit] Alternative to Reddit

,

Overview

A free and open source alternative Reddit front-end focused on privacy. Inspired by the Nitter project.

Features

  • No JavaScript or ads
  • All requests go through the backend, client never talks to Reddit
  • Prevents Reddit from tracking your IP or JavaScript fingerprint
  • Unofficial API (RSS & JSON support, no rate limits or Reddit account required)
  • Lightweight (teddit frontpage: ~30 HTTP requests with ~270 KB of data downloaded vs. Reddit frontpage: ~190 requests with ~24 MB)
  • Self-hostable. Anyone can setup an instance. An instance can either use Reddit’s API with or without OAuth (so Reddit API key is not necessarily needed).

Shipped version: 0.4.0~ynh1
