Async RedditEasy

Yes, there is an async version of RedditEasy. To use it, you need to use the Async classes. Which are AsyncSubreddit and AsyncUser

Here is a small example on using AsyncSubreddit: https://github.com/MakufonSkifto/RedditEasy/blob/main/examples/async_meme.py

You can and should use this in a discord.py bot. The normal classes could cause a blocking in an async program.

This will not work outside an async function whatsoever.

Usage

Without Reddit API client info

This method is not suggested as it may be slow and throw errors more often

import redditeasy
import datetime

# To get your Reddit API client info go to
# https://www.reddit.com/prefs/apps
# and create an app

# For more detailed explanation, see this image: https://i.imgur.com/Ri13AQu.png


post = redditeasy.Subreddit()

postoutput = post.get_post(subreddit="dankmemes") # Subreddit name

# Formatted version of created_at
formatted_time = datetime.datetime.fromtimestamp(postoutput.created_at).strftime("%d/%m/%Y %I:%M:%S UTC")

print(f"Posts Title: {postoutput.title}\n"
      f"Posts Content: {postoutput.content}\n"
      f"Posts Author: u/{postoutput.author}\n"
      f"Posts URL: {postoutput.post_url}\n"
      f"Spoiler?: {postoutput.spoiler}\n"
      f"Post Created At: {formatted_time}\n"
      f"Posts Upvote Count: {postoutput.score}\n"
      f"Posts Award Count: {postoutput.total_awards}\n"
