4 – Reddit Command Line Interface

A text-based interface (TUI) to view and interact with Reddit from your terminal.

TUIR currently depends on Michael Lazar’s (maintainer of RTV) fork of PRAW being packaged with the program. Michael’s fork is a fork from PRAW version 3.6.1, which is currently unsupported. Further, packaged dependencies aren’t looked upon fondly by various distribution’s packaging guidelines (#11, Gentoo Wiki – Why not bundle dependencies). Due to this, I’m working to update TUIR to a more recent PRAW version which isn’t bundled.
