How to Fetch Memes from Reddit Using JavaScript?

Estimated read time 1 min read

To fetch memes from Reddit using JavaScript, you can use the Reddit API to make a request for the desired subreddit and retrieve its data. Here’s an example using the fetch API:

const subreddit = "memes";
const limit = 10;

const endpoint = `https://www.reddit.com/r/${subreddit}/new.json?limit=${limit}`;

fetch(endpoint)
  .then(response => response.json())
  .then(data => {
    const memes = data.data.children.map(child => child.data);
    console.log(memes);
  })
  .catch(error => console.error(error));

In this example, the Reddit API is queried for the limit number of the latest posts in the memes subreddit. The resulting data is then parsed into JSON format and the children property of the data is mapped to an array of meme objects. The array of memes is then logged to the console.
