Possible? Get titles of threads in specific subreddit with certain keyword and the date created + comment amount. by qsfroot in redditdev

[–]ketralnis 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'd recommend a wrapper like PRAW which will enforce that you follow the API rules but the short answer is yes. You can hit reddit.com/r/123/search.json?q=update&restrict_sr=true and similarly you can pull the .json versions of every result of that to get the comments

Are UUIDs valid in alternate realities? by minimaxir in shittyprogramming

[–]ketralnis 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yes. In any two universes for which a UUID is shared, there exists a parallel pair in which it is not shared. So you should use that other one for computation instead

I don't want to make a bot, so I only want "username" and "password, how would I do that? by gorange_ninja in redditdev

[–]ketralnis 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You also need a real user agent and not just “test”, even while just testing (especially while just testing, since you’re more likely to have bugs that hurt reddit that they’ll need to let you know about)

Native Video Integration? by cclloyd in redditdev

[–]ketralnis 0 points1 point  (0 children)

mp4 might be a special case that we can just return a <video> element for (as compared to someone like youtube that has their own fairly complex elements to be built up which oEmbed is more built for). I'm not super familiar with the embed stuff but I can tell you it mostly happens here https://github.com/reddit/reddit/blob/master/r2/r2/lib/media.py and here https://github.com/reddit/reddit/blob/master/r2/r2/controllers/mediaembed.py

That helps for web, but I don't know how we handle it on our mobile apps. I'd guess that we have some one-off media types that the apps themselves are specifically familiar with, not related to oEmbed at all

Native Video Integration? by cclloyd in redditdev

[–]ketralnis[A] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We do it a couple of different ways, but I think what you're after is the oEmbed standard which I believe we use via embed.ly. So if you implement oEmbed we can support your site's custom embed without any changes on the reddit side

Electron is Cancer by bluepandacode in programming

Developers fill the space they are given

This can't over overstated. Does your computer/phone/whatever feel slower than it did when you bought it? It probably don't slow down, the software you updated got worse.

What are you seeing and where, and what do you expect to see instead? Can you take a screenshot?

That has been asked and it looks like the answer is no (in the short term anyway)

Is Reddit search now being unable to search for things in past 2 days? by _underrated_ in help

[–]ketralnis[A] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

We're taking a look right now, it looks like a job was temporarily paused and never turned back on. That's not itself a huge problem so much as the fact that we didn't know it never got unpaused, so we're looking into both

Version 0.16.5 by FactorioTeam in factorio

[–]ketralnis 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I have (1, 2) :) It's just easier to track conversations on reddit with proper threading and a working inbox than it is on phpbb.

That thread also has a couple of the entitled "I'M SO ANGRY ABOUT THIS BUG WHY AREN'T THE DEVS GODS THAT CAN JUST WILL THEM AWAY?!" types that, if it were in a forum on my game, would probably make me ignore the thread.

It's also possible that other reddit folk are seeing the same behaviour but have discovered a workaround or some more specific reproduction steps than I have.

Version 0.16.5 by FactorioTeam in factorio

[–]ketralnis 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Glad to see forward progress! I'm one of the folk seeing this issue and I'm not able to play 0.16 at all because of it (I just confirmed that it's still a problem on 0.16.5). I totally understand that it's hard to reproduce, is there any more info I can provide or debugging I can do to help hunt it down?

If you don't need anything frameworky, you can use hyper directly pretty easily
