A downloader for images from reddit.

Project Description

Work in progress.

This software uses RedditImageGrab by Daniel Brown, which can be found at

original “readme.txt” of RedditImageGrab:

I created this script to download the latest (and greatest) wallpapers off of image subreddits like wallpaper to keep my desktop wallpaper fresh and interesting. The main idea is that the script would download any JPEG or PNG formatted image that it found listed in the specified subreddit and download them to a folder.

An example of running this script to download images with a score greater than 50 from the wallpaper sub-reddit into a folder called wallpaper would be as follows:

python wallpaper wallpaper -score 50

And to run the same query but only get new images you don’t already have, run the following:

python wallpaper wallpaper -score 50 -update

Advanced Examples:

Retrieve last 10 pics in the ‘wallpaper’ subreddit with the word “sunset” in the title (note: case is ignored by (?i) predicate)

python wallpaper sunsets -regex ‘(?i).*sunset.*’ -num 10
