Readme

GateRed

A library to fetch Reddit data using Reddit WebAPI (gateway), w/ pushshift historical submissions support.

Latest Version Supported Python Versions CI Code style: black GitHub license

Documentation · Replit Playground

Why this library?

Although there are existing libraries (e.g. praw) to interact with Reddit developer's API, there are still several drawbacks when we trying to collect vast amount of data. gatered tries to counter these problems to provide these features:

  • No authentication (API key) is needed to access the data.
  • Extra attributes is presented using the Reddit webAPI compared to the public devAPI.
  • Fully Async based.
  • Proxy support via httpx.

Install

You can install this library easily from pypi:

# with pip
pip install gatered

# with poetry
poetry add gatered

Using

The library provides easy functions to get start fast:

  • gatered.func.get_post_comments
  • gatered.func.get_posts_with_subreddit_info
  • gatered.func.get_posts
  • gatered.func.get_comments
  • gatered.func.get_pushshift_posts

Alternatively you can directly use gatered.client.Client and gatered.pushshift.PushShiftAPI classes as your base to implement your own logics.

Errors can be handled by importing either gatered.RequestError or gatered.HTTPStatusError, see httpx exceptions to learn more.

See examples/ for more examples. Alternately, you can fork the example repo on Replit and play around online.
