Reddit Goes Open-Source

By Deane Barker on June 18, 2008

reddit goes open source: Reddit has open-sourced their codebase. I think it’s written in…Lisp?

Today we’re excited to announce that we’re open sourcing reddit. We’ve always strived to be as open and transparent with our users as possible, and this is the next logical step. When we say ‘open-source’ we mean specifically that the code behind reddit is available to the public for download, and we’re inviting the public to submit code to help improve the site.
