Today I’m happy to announce the release of Postpone, an app to schedule Reddit posts for increased views, upvotes, and traffic to your projects.
Postpone is an app created to solve my own need. I often have blog posts, open source project updates, or other content to share on Reddit. However, I don’t want to share this content when others are offline and won’t see it. This is where Postpone comes in.

In this article I will go over the steps I took to brainstorm and ultimately decide on a name for the app. …
I recently announced the release of a project I’ve been working on for a few months. The project is called Lintly. It is a continuous Python code quality checking tool that lints your code when you push to GitHub. I won’t go into detail about what Lintly is here — you can read about that in the other blog post or go to lintly.com.
