Hi everyone!

I published a repository called Reddit Media Downloader for a hobby. It is written in JavaScript.

Reddit Media Downloader downloads video or image files from the thread URL.

I didn't write any tests. So, I'm sure there are many errors. You can find them and yes we can fix errors together. Currently there are no elegant codes. It took only about 25~30 minutes

Pull Requests are welcome. Thanks!
