It’s been a while since I wrote the last one, but a user on reddit asked how to get OAuth working with Imgur, and I couldn’t resist giving it one more shot.

Right off the bat, I want to show you the results of this scraping, to give you a bit of motivation. Anyways, thanks to requests and BeautifulSoup, this is made trivially easy.

Just finished writing a script that pulls the steam purchases from the HTML that you pass in. You’ll be able to see the total money you’ve spent on Steam games. It’s not fancy or anything, but it adds value for me. Cheers!
What’s up? Today we’re going to look at how to retrieve the stories (official term for submissions or selfposts) from any given subreddit. What we’re going to do is pretty simple, essentially just customizing a url with the proper subreddit and reading the JSON object returned. It’s going to be a pretty short one. I’m going to attach the login code I’ve written along with the code we’ve looked at today so that you can just copy and paste it into your IDE and start playing with it, right away. Just make sure you’ve got all the required module installed, mentioned here. Hit the jump to get started!
