Reddit API Methods Listed Alpha or By oAuth Scope

I was taking another look at the Reddit API over the weekend, and thought their listing of API endpoints was pretty interesting. They provide two ways of looking at the platform APIs:

  • API Section - Listing of Reddit APIs by account, apps, links, listings, and other groupings.
  • oAuth Scope - Listing of Reddit APIs by the endpoints oAuth scope.

Not sure if it is something all APIs should follow, I just thought it was an interesting approach, something I haven’t seen in any other API area. Reddit has a number of APIs, I can see if you have specific goals with the API, this might be useful to have API sorted in this way.
