Hey, This is super cool! One suggestion: Is there a way to pull reactions as it is (heart, unicorn, and bookmarks seperately) and display them with the icons? It would be more cool. 😊

Sadly, no. The API only offers a sum of all positive reactions - not a breakdown of each.

Ah, got it.

Btw, simply scrape the URL of the post and get the values from HTML.

Ah wait, you have to render the HTML - because it's built on react.

Yes, as this is a client side script I don’t want to scrape anything and rather just rely on the APIs.

I could make a request for the functionality in the API but there’s no guarantee it will be added.
