Teddit - Access Reddit without ads and tracking.

Published (last edited on )

Teddit1 is an open source alternative front-end for Reddit. It allows you to access Reddit content without privacy-invading tracking and annoying ads. Subscribing to subreddits is also possible - settings and subscribed subreddits are stored in a cookie (exporting/importing is possible), a Reddit account is not required.

There are several public servers/instances2 available, just pick one from the official list on the website linked below.

The URL structure is simple: just replace “reddit.com” with the URL of your chosen instance. For example

https://reddit.com/r/somesubreddit

becomes

https://teddit.net/r/somesubreddit

Alternatively, you can host your own private or public instance. A public instance hosted by Pharos is already planned and will be implemented as soon as the community support guarantees a reliable server upkeep.

While I’d love to see more people moving to the Fediverse there still is a lot of good content on Reddit. Teddit is a great way to access said content without being tracked.

Update: Due to the Reddit API changes, Teddit is no longer actively maintained. The public instances are likely showing “error code 429 - too many requests” so you are probably better off using a self-hosted private instance.
