Reddit encourages third-party bot and app development with new dev platform
News in brief

Reddit will soon be launching the Reddit Developer Platform, “a unified space for developers to create and launch programs and apps to run specifically on Reddit”.

The new platform will support third-party developers who “may just want to create their own tools”, such as bots that detect Twitter links or remind users about events when prompted.

The Reddit Developer Platform will contain a suite of developer tools and resources that “will enable and empower developers” who otherwise currently “operate primarily as siloed resources for the communities they care about, utilizing limited resources and ad-hoc support”.

For interested developers, Reddit has launched a waitlist for the platform.
