SaidIt App Development Guidelines

SaidIt and Reddit

SaidIt is not Reddit! This document will help you to understand the differences that pertain to apps and clients.

Home page

  • Due to SaidIt's configurable home page feature, requesting returns content from an unknown sub! It could be /s/all or /s/subscribed especially if users are logged into your app/client. Instead, request 'Subscribed' content from /s/subscribed, and 'All' content from /s/all. Always request data from a sub and not from '/'. /s/subscribed is the default home page which includes default subs for guests.
