The pushshift.io Reddit API was designed and created by the /r/datasets mod team to help provide enhanced functionality and search capabilities for searching Reddit comments and submissions. The project lead, /u/stuck_in_the_matrix, is the maintainer of the Reddit comment and submissions archives located at https://files.pushshift.io.

This RESTful API gives full functionality for searching Reddit data and also includes the capability of creating powerful data aggregations. With this API, you can quickly find the data that you are interested in and find fascinating correlations.
