Here we will be discussing Reddit API and how we can set it up.

About Reddit

Reddit is a very popular entertainment and social news networking service. It’s kind of like Slashdot in that users vote on which stories are the best and they can get promoted to the front page. A few years ago, Digg used to be the big site that did this sort of thing. Reddit has lots of sub-sites called subreddits that are devoted to specific subjects, like gaming, photos, programming languages, etc.

Reddit has also published an API that has been wrapped by some clever Python programmers. It is called PRAW: The Python Reddit Api Wrapper. We can install PRAW using pip:

pip3 install praw
