A command line tool that uses the Reddit API to track popularity of a keyword. The tool is currently focused on tracking developer technologies, such as programming languages, frameworks or IDEs.
pub global activate reddit_crawl.
To get data for "dart" for the past 3 months (default), run this:
$ reddit_crawl dart
This will fetch the data and it will create 2 sets of files in the current working directory:
The JSON files include all the data received from Reddit API. The TSV file is useful for copypasting into spreadsheets and includes only a subset of the data and some helper columns.
Run the tool without parameters to get help.
$ reddit_crawl Exactly one argument is requred: a name of a technology. Additional options: -v, --verbose Verbose mode. --months Number of months to crawl in reverse chronological order. (defaults to "3") --mobile Use additional subreddits that specialize in mobile development. --web Use additional subreddits that specialize in web development.
To get all mentions of "vim" on major Reddit programming forums, including mobile- and web-focused ones, from the past 6 years (6 * 12 = 72 months), use:
$ reddit_crawl --months 72 --mobile --web vim
Later, you can just run
reddit_crawl --mobile --web vim to update your
output-vim-all files with the latest submissions.
