In Reddit, we can post a comment to any submission, we can also comment on a comment to create a thread of comments. Any user can either upvote or downvote a comment, the net value is the score of the comment. Here we will see how to fetch the score of a comment using PRAW. We will be using the score attribute of the Comment class to fetch the score of a comment.

Example 1 : Consider the following comment :

The ID of the comment is : fvib7aw




# 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 score attribute
score = comment.score
    
print("The score of the comment is : " + str(score))


Output :

The score of the comment is : 25

Example 2 : Consider the following comment:

The ID of the comment is : fv9qvgo




# 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 score attribute
score = comment.score
    
print("The score of the comment is : " + str(score))


Output :

The score of the comment is : 4
