While browsing reddit I kept saving interesting links/discussions that I wanted to come back at a later time. Reddit limits saved posts/comments to 1000 and there is no easy way to search for that specific topic you remember you saved 2 months ago. Cue reddit-saved.com! It allows you to search all your saved items and group them by assigning tags to specific items.
reddit-saved.com utilizes reddit APIs to retrieve all the saved items. The saved items are then indexed into a full-text search engine. This allows reddit-saved.com to bypass the 1000 item limit. Internally only two reddit APIs are hit:
In order to retrieve information through the above two APIs, reddit-saved.com requires the user to authenticate through OAuth2. Compared to other reddit clients (e.g. Android/iOS apps that allow browsing reddit), reddit-saved.com needs minimal permissions from the user (requesting only identity and history oauth scopes). The authorization is handled by reddit and the user's password is never sent to reddit-saved.com.
reddit-saved.com stores reddit usernames and refresh tokens internally and utilizes encrypted cookies to remember logged in users. Users can logout at any time. This deletes all the login information for the user while still storing the saved items and tags. Once logged out, users need to login and authorize again reddit-saved.com. Users can also delete all the information saved on reddit-saved.com. This deletes the login information along with all the saved items and tags.
All user information stored on reddit-saved.com is utilized solely for providing the search and tagging functionalities.
