Reddit is one of the most popular websites that has extensive RSS support. You can do things with RSS feed which you can’t even do with normal APIs. I’ll give some examples.

Frontpage

You can get RSS feed of the frontpage using following URL:

https://www.reddit.com/.rss

Subreddit

To create RSS feed of posts appearing in a subreddit, you can use:

https://www.reddit.com/r/{subreddit-name}/.rss

The above URL will return posts in Default (Hot) sort order of the subreddit. That’s not it though. You can get the feed in your preferred sort order using the following URL (replace {sort-order} with one of the — ‘new’, ‘rising’, ‘controversial’):

https://www.reddit.com/r/{subreddit-name}/{sort-order}/.rss?sort={sort-order}

There’s one more type of feed that Reddit allows on a subreddit level. Top Feed. To get RSS feed of Top posts of a subreddit, try following URL (replace {time} with one of the — ‘hour’, ‘day’, ‘week’, ‘month’, ‘year’, ‘all_time’ to get top posts of the subreddit in respective interval):

https://www.reddit.com/r/{subreddit-name}/top/.rss?sort=top&t={time}

To create RSS feed of all the comments appearing in a subreddit, you can use:

https://www.reddit.com/r/{subreddit-name}/comments/.rss

https://www.reddit.com/user/{user-name}/.rss

To get RSS feed of the posts submitted by a specific user, try following URL:
