teddit

teddit.net

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

  • 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).

Community instances:

TODO

  • Import/export preferences
  • User trophies
  • "other discussions" feature
  • "Open on reddit" links
  • ... and lot of other small stuff

Roadmap

  • More themes, not just white or dark
  • HLS video streaming? (Would require browser JavaScript)
  • Onion site
  • User login, so people can use their Reddit account through teddit to comment and up/downvote posts etc.

Changelog

Installation

Docker

Using Docker and docker-compose:

docker-compose build
docker-compose up

Teddit should now be running at http://localhost:8080.

Manual

  1. Install Node.js.

  2. (Optional) Install redis-server.

    Highly recommended – it works as a cache for Reddit API calls.

  3. (Optional) Install ffmpeg.

    It's needed if you want to support videos.

    # Linux
    apt install redis-server ffmpeg
    
    # macOS
    brew install redis
    
  4. Clone and set up the repository.

    git clone https://codeberg.org/teddit/teddit
    cd teddit
    npm install --no-optional
    cp config.js.template config.js # edit the file to suit your environment
    redis-server
    npm start
    

Teddit should now be running at http://localhost:8080.
