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

Output :

Are the authenticated user and spez friends? : True
Are the authenticated user and spez friends? : 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)
  
# before using the unfriend() method
print("Are the authenticated user and " + redditor.name +
      " friends? : " + str(redditor.is_friend))
  
# unfriending the redditor
redditor.unfriend()
  
# after using the unfriend() method
print("Are the authenticated user and " + redditor.name +
      " friends? : " + str(redditor.is_friend))
