Main Source Code of Reddit Was Turned Off

Reddit has made its website source code available since 2008 in a bid to keep the community alive no matter what, but it’s having a change of heart now that it’s older and larger. The company hasannouncedthat it’s turning off access to a monolithic source code for its site and mobile apps, and will instead offer “many” smaller code bases. This is partly because the team hasn’t done a great job of keeping this centralized code up to date, Reddit says, but it’s also due to competitive reasons. It’s difficult to develop features likevideo uploading in open source code without telegraphing your plans to your competitors, according to Reddit.
