PRAW, an acronym for
Python Reddit API Wrapper, is a python package that
allows for simple access to Reddit's API. PRAW aims to be easy to use and
internally follows all of
Reddit's API rules
<https://github.com/reddit/reddit/wiki/API>_. With PRAW there's no need to
sleep calls in your code. Give your client an appropriate user
agent and you're set.
PRAW is supported on python 2.7, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5 and 3.6. The recommended way to
install PRAW is via
.. code-block:: bash
pip install praw

# Create a submission to /r/test reddit.subreddit('test').submit('Test Submission', url='https://reddit.com')
# Comment on a known submission submission = reddit.submission(url='https://www.reddit.com/comments/5e1az9') submission.reply('Super rad!')
# Reply to the first comment of a weekly top thread of a moderated community submission = next(reddit.subreddit('mod').top('week')) submission.comments.reply('An automated reply')
# Output score for the first 256 items on the frontpage for submission in reddit.front.hot(limit=256): print(submission.score)
# Obtain the moderator listing for redditdev for moderator in reddit.subreddit('redditdev').moderator: print(moderator)
