I made a little wallpaper script that scrapes reddit for wallpapers and gives you a random one

Reddit - Thu, 2016-04-21 05:34

Script is here ~> http://termbin.com/l038 :)

Place the subreddits you want it to scrape in ~/.subreddits - one per line, without the /r/ part. The defaults are /r/wallpaper, /r/wallpapers, /r/spaceporn, and /r/earthporn.

It picks a random subreddit from the config file, then picks a random image from that to download. If for any reason it can't find one (nonexistent subreddit, timeout, etc) it will try again.

It saves the image in ~/.wallpapers/$(date +%s).jpg (whether or not it's a JPEG file), and then sets it as your wallpaper.

Feedback appreciated! :)
