Python PRAW – Getting the link karma of a redditor
  • Last Updated : 21 Jun, 2020

In Reddit, a redditor is the term given to a user. Reddit karma is the score you get for posting and commenting on Reddit. Here we will see how to fetch the karma obtained by posting submissions on Reddit by a redditor. We will be using the link_karma attribute of the Redditor class to fetch the link karma.

Example 1 : Consider the following redditor :

The user name of the redditor is : spez.

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 name of the redditor
redditor_name = "spez"
  
# instantiating the Redditor class
redditor = reddit.redditor(redditor_name)
  
print("The link karma of " + redditor_name + " is : " +
      str(redditor.link_karma))

Output :

The link karma of spez is : 130856

Example 2 : Consider the following redditor :



The user name of the redditor is : AutoModerator

# 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("The link karma of " + redditor_name + " is : " +
      str(redditor.link_karma))
