Te this tutorial miniseries, wij’re going to be covering the Python Reddit API Wrapper, PRAW. Reddit is a place for just about everything, separated by “subreddits.” I find it to be a welvoeglijk source for news, a good source to learn more about specific topics, and certainly always interesting.
While it fluctuates a bit, at the time of my writing this, Reddit is one of the top Ten websites te the world, and the sheer amount of contextual gegevens that you can find here is staggering. I am presently interested te pulling more specifically conversational gegevens, but there’s a loterijlot more you could do here, so my purpose here is to voorstelling you how quickly you can get your own bot up and running, do whatever it is you’re wanting to do.

pip install praw
Above, wij’ve created a Reddit example. You will need to pack te all of the information above with your own information. You need a Reddit account, so you can either use an existing account or create a fresh one. Merienda done, you can go to https://www.reddit.com/, and then click on “preferences” next to your name.
From here, choose the “apps” tabulator, and then “create an app” or “create another app. “
Ter here, pack out the name, description, about url and redirect uri spil you see getraind.

Merienda you have your Reddit example, the world of Reddit just opened up to you! Let’s see what you can do. At least for mij, I am using a brand fresh acount, so I am not a member of any subreddits. SAD. So let’s check out a subreddit. I think the Python subreddit would be fitting.
