Python PRAW – Check whether a redditor is friends with the user

  • Last Updated : 21 Jun, 2020

In Reddit, a redditor is the term given to a user. Reddit allows the authenticated user to be “friends” with another redditor. Here we will see how to check whether a redditor is friends with the authenticated user or not. We will be using the is_friend attribute of the Redditor class to check whether a redditor is friends with the authenticated user or not.

Example 1 : Consider the following redditor :

The user name of the redditor is : spez.




# importing the module
import praw
  
# initialize with appropriate values
client_id = ""
client_secret = ""
username = ""
password = ""
user_agent = ""
  
# creating an authorized reddit instance
reddit = praw.Reddit(client_id = client_id, 
                     client_secret = client_secret, 
                     username = username, 
                     password = password,
                     user_agent = user_agent) 
  
# the name of the redditor
redditor_name = "spez"
  
# instantiating the Redditor class
redditor = reddit.redditor(redditor_name)
  
print("Is " + redditor_name + " friends with the authenticated user? : " +
      str(redditor.is_friend))

Output :

Is spez friends with the authenticated user? : False

Example 2 : Consider the following redditor :



The user name of the redditor is : AutoModerator




# importing the module
import praw
  
# initialize with appropriate values
client_id = ""
client_secret = ""
username = ""
password = ""
user_agent = ""
  
# creating an authorized reddit instance
reddit = praw.Reddit(client_id = client_id, 
                     client_secret = client_secret, 
                     username = username, 
                     password = password,
                     user_agent = user_agent) 
  
# the name of the redditor
redditor_name = "AutoModerator"
  
# instantiating the Redditor class
redditor = reddit.redditor(redditor_name)
  
print("Is " + redditor_name + " friends with the authenticated user? : " +
      str(redditor.is_friend))

Output :

Is AutoModerator friends with the authenticated user? : False
