Creating a script type app on reddit

To get the log in credentials, you have to make an app for the account you want to control.

Step 1

Go to your apps page and create a new app with this button:

make app a


Step 2

Set up your app and check the 'script' radio button. The redirect URI is required but unused, so make it anything you want. Click create app.

make app b


Step 3

Fill in the details in the node edit dialog.

'client ID' is the string below 'personal use script'.

make app c

If all of the details are correct, on recieving a message, the node will log in and send the original msg object it recieved.

Nodes which require authentication, such as the post to sub node, can now be used.

Note: The details in this example are not valid.
