Do you want to know which are the latest trends in the big place that is the internet ? Do you want to be the first to find out which topics have the most positive and negative impact? Furthermore, do you want to use this information to control the universe ? [insert evil laugh here]

What it does

TrendIT is a website in which you can see what the current most popular topics are on Reddit, and get a general impression of whether these trends have positive or negative reactions in their comments. It consists of three parts; the first one allows you to select between daily, weekly or monthly analysis. Then, you can see the most popular posts, with a sentiment analysis to understand whether the general opinion on that topic is positive or negative. Finally, there's a summary of the most popular subreddits and categories, so that you can get an overview of what is trending now!

How we built it

We built it during a snowy weekend in Eindhoven, with lots of love and motivation. We used reddit's API with Flask, did some sentiment analysis with python and nltk, and then built the website with Javascript and Bootstrap.

Challenges we ran into

Connecting to the wifi


There are SO MANY subredits, we didn't know how to limit them

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Creating a usable website from which to get statistics in reddit
