  • Last Updated : 21 Jun, 2020

In Reddit, a redditor is the term given to a user. Reddit gives us the functionality to add a redditor as a friend with the authenticated user. Here we will see how to befriend a redditor. We will be using the friend() method of the Redditor class to befriend a redditor.

friend()

Syntax : Redditor.friend(note)

code

# 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)
  
# before using the friend() method
print("Are the authenticated user and " + redditor.name +
      " friends? : " + str(redditor.is_friend))
  
# befriending the redditor
redditor.friend()
  
# after using the friend() method
print("Are the authenticated user and " + redditor.name +
