Reddit API Integrations

Build and run workflows using the Reddit API. Use 1000s of open source triggers and actions across 700+ apps. Or write custom code to integrate any app or API in seconds.

import { axios } from "@pipedream/platform"
export default defineComponent({
  props: {
    reddit: {
      type: "app",
      app: "reddit",
  async run({steps, $}) {
    return await axios($, {
      url: `https://oauth.reddit.com/api/v1/me`,
      headers: {
        Authorization: `Bearer ${this.reddit.$auth.oauth_access_token}`,
        "User-Agent": `pipedream:v0.0.1 (by /u/pipedream-oauth)`,


Reddit uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your Reddit account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into Reddit and grant Pipedream permission to connect to your account. Pipedream securely stores and automatically refreshes the OAuth tokens so you can easily authenticate any Reddit API.

Pipedream requests the following authorization scopes when you connect your account:

OAuth Request Configurations:
  1. authorization
  2. accessToken

Building a Reddit Workflow with Pipedream
Building a Reddit Workflow with Pipedream
Almost four years ago I blogged about a demo I built using Reddit's API. The demo was a multi-user application that made use of Mongo for persistence and Passport.js for user authentication. You would login, select subreddit's to subscribe to, and then once a day it would email you the new posts from that subreddit. This was built in a "traditional" Node.js style with a server running full time to process requests. I thought it would be fun to build this again (although slightly different) using Pipedream's support for working with the Reddit API. I built two different versions of a simple workflow I'd like to share below.

Updating my Reddit Workflow with Pipedream
Back almost exactly a month ago, I blogged about using Pipedream to build a Reddit email report. The idea was that I wanted a daily email of posts from my subscribed subreddits for the past 24 hours of content. The implementation was a bit complex. I used one workflow to handle "get a days worth of content from subreddit" as a general "API" and another workflow connected to my authentication. It handles getting my subscriptions, hitting the API, and then generating the email. This worked well, but after a while of actually getting the email, I noticed some problems. So I decided to fix that.
