Python PRAW – Getting the ID of a comment in Reddit

In Reddit, we can post a comment to any submission, we can also comment on a comment to create a thread of comments. Reddit assigns each and every comment with an identification. Here we will see how to fetch the ID of a comment using PRAW. We will be using the id attribute of the Comment class to fetch the ID of a comment.

Example 1 : Consider the following comment :

The ID of the comment is : fvib7aw

filter_none

edit
close

play_arrow

link
brightness_4
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 ID of the comment
comment_id = "fvib7aw"
  
# instantiating the Comment class
comment = reddit.comment(comment_id)
  
# fetching the ID of the comment
id = comment.id
  
# printing the ID of the comment
print("The ID of the comment is : " + id)

chevron_right


Output :

The ID of the comment is : fvib7aw

Example 2 : Consider the following comment:



The ID of the comment is : fv9qvgo

filter_none

brightness_4
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 ID of the comment
comment_id = "fv9qvgo"
  
# instantiating the Comment class
comment = reddit.comment(comment_id)
  
# fetching the ID of the comment
id = comment.id
  
# printing the ID of the comment
print("The ID of the comment is : " + id)

chevron_right


Output :
