Web extension: Reddit feed filtering
- Juro Oravec
Web extension to filter the posts on your Reddit homepage feed and shape it to your liking.
The extension uses web extension API to read the user settings and read the web page (if the user is on reddit.com domain). Then, it reads, parses (and listens for future changes to) the webpage's HTML. Based on the post's subreddit and the frequency configured by the user, some posts are hidden from the feed. Posts are hidden by removing them from the HTML. User settings are persisted per user browser profile via web extension API.
The web extension provides a popup UI through which you can configure the frequency at which you see posts. Frequency is set per subreddit. UI is implemented in React and TypeScript.
