CommentForest# class praw.models.comment_forest.CommentForest(submission: praw.models.Submission, comments: list[praw.models.Comment] | None = None)# A forest of comments starts with multiple top-level comments. Each of these comments can be a tree of replies. __getitem__(index: int) → praw.models.Comment# Return the comment at position index in the list. This method is to be used like an array access, such as: first_comment = submission.comments Alternatively, the presence of this method enables one to iterate over all top level comments, like so: for comment in submission.comments: print(comment.body) __init__(submission: praw.models.Submission, comments: list[praw.models.Comment] | None = None)# Initialize a CommentForest instance. Parameters: submission – An instance of Submission that is the parent of the comments. comments – Initialize the forest with a list of comments (default: None). __len__() → int# Return the number of top-level comments in the forest. list() → list[praw.models.Comment | praw.models.MoreComments]# Return a flattened list of all comments. This list may contain MoreComments instances if replace_more() was not called first. replace_more(*, limit: int | None = 32, threshold: int = 0) → list[praw.models.MoreComments]# Update the comment forest by resolving instances of MoreComments. Parameters: limit – The maximum number of MoreComments instances to replace. Each replacement requires 1 API request. Set to None to have no limit, or to 0 to remove all MoreComments instances without additional requests (default: 32). threshold – The minimum number of children comments a MoreComments instance must have in order to be replaced. MoreComments instances that represent “continue this thread” links unfortunately appear to have 0 children (default: 0). Returns: A list of MoreComments instances that were not replaced. Raises: prawcore.TooManyRequests when used concurrently. For example, to replace up to 32 MoreComments instances of a submission try: submission = reddit.submission("3hahrw") submission.comments.replace_more() Alternatively, to replace MoreComments instances within the replies of a single comment try: comment = reddit.comment("d8r4im1") comment.refresh() comment.replies.replace_more() Note This method can take a long time as each replacement will discover at most 100 new Comment instances. As a result, consider looping and handling exceptions until the method returns successfully. For example: while True: try: submission.comments.replace_more() break except PossibleExceptions: print("Handling replace_more exception") sleep(1) Warning If this method is called, and the comments are refreshed, calling this method again will result in a DuplicateReplaceException.
