A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor. - Franklin D. Roosevelt
Hi Pythonistas, a new week, a new 'bite' of Python coding! Love or hate Reddit, it has a lot of good data to work with. This week we have you write an app of your choice using the Reddit API. Have fun!
A program that would fetch one challenge from easy, one from Intermediate and one hard from r/dailyprogrammer and shows it in the console. (PyBites: definitely something we could use!)
A program that would fetch 10 (or so) news items from r/news and sort them in decreasing order of upvotes.
Fetch a user's history, example.
Build a Reddit Bot, example.
Do some data analysis, for example: build word clouds, example.
But these are just examples. Feel free to build anything. The goal is to sharpen your coding skills. If you scratch your own itch even better (last week's Pomodori Tracker for example is something we use on a daily basis now).
Reddit API resources page - info on OAuth / API limits / links to other wrapper modules.
While you're at it, if you like this challenge upvote it on Reddit or retweet it on Twitter. The more people coding with us == more possible PR submissions for our review == the more we all learn from this!
This doc also provides you with instructions how you can submit your code to our community branch via a Pull Request (PR). We will feature your PRs in our end-of-the-week challenge review (previous editions).
Last but not least: there is no best solution, only learning more and better Python. Good luck!
Keep Calm and Code in Python!

"Do you ever go on one of those cooking websites for a recipe and have to scroll for what feels like an eternity to get to the ingredients and the 4 steps the recipe actually takes? This is the opposite of that." - Sergio S
