RedditArchiver is a simple command line tool that will retrieve the contents of a reddit account, up to reddit's hard limit of 1000 items. This means that if your account contains a total of 1001 submissions or comments, only 1000 of them can be retrieved. There is currently no way around this limit.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'reddit_archiver'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install reddit_archiver


$ mv config.yml.example config.yml

Edit the configuration file to supply your account details. Then, run

$ bundle exec reddit_archiver

Once the script finishes, your posts will be available in the directory specified in config.yml.
