Hi, is there an example of trying to access the login API using jQuery? I tried using JSONP and changing the URL to "", but that gives a 404. Any hint what I am doing wrong?

The wrappers available are only available in node.js and not in JS/jQuery.

I have put it in a div called id of #reddit-content and I get the data in there but for some reason it makes the scroll box way too large.
