Inspiration

All of us browse reddit.com relatively frequently, so we though it may be cool to integrate it into

What it does

It simply takes the first image from a specified subreddit and displays it in the browser whenever you open a new tab.

How I built it

We used javascript and html.

Challenges I ran into

We had to add in a method to scale the image to different aspect ratios.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

We were able to make the base of the program work consistently.

What I learned

We learned that we can use many of the technologies available to us to make our lives just a little more colorful.

What's next for Reddit Fetcher NTP

We tried to make some more complicated layouts for Reddit Fetcher such as having a bar of feed from the subreddit you specified. A problem we ran into is how to make it work on multiple aspect ratios and window sizes since the object will share space with the main image.
