9gag on the 27th of February 2020 blocked direct access to their JSON stream. Hence trying to reach for https://9gag.com/v1/group-posts/group/girl/type/fresh directly will fail with 403 forbidden error when not accessed from the browser.
This is quite annoying. I don't understand why in 2020 website do not publish a free RSS/ATOM feed or json access of their data.
So I have found a way to bypass this and created a RSS feed of 9gag.com, JSON feed for 9gag.com and even a clean lite viewer for 9gag.com which remembers which posts you have already seen (using localstorage) so you will know where to stop and also without the annoying reload scroll. You can also view the code on git: 9gager
