Motivation

It is often faster to use a CLI than to load up a web page and navigate web elements. This tool can search for deals and sort them based on score and views. It is also able to load entire threads (without pagination) for additional analysis.

Installation

pip

pip3 install --user rfd

This can also be installed with pipx.

brew

If you have brew:

brew install davegallant/public/rfd

Usage

All commands open up in a terminal pager.
