I’ve been working on a proxy that makes it possible for 3rd party Reddit apps to connect to Lemmy with minimal code changes. Ideally all that’s needed is to swap out the url for that of the proxy. Naturally it’s open source.

I’ve got it to a point where basic browsing is possible and works with RedReader and libreddit, but I could use some help testing it with more apps and of course implementing more of the API.

To test with an app, you need to modify it to connect to the proxy instead of Reddit, which I’ve done here for libreddit, just for testing. The RedReader dev has already expressed some interest in making the API url configurable for the end user.

    This is amazing !

    If third party apps switch to Lemmy this could really help Lemmy to grow.

    I would love to have infinity for Lemmy.
