LiveThreadStream

class praw.models.reddit.live.LiveThreadStream(live_thread: praw.models.reddit.live.LiveThread)

Provides a LiveThread stream.

Usually used via:

for live_update in reddit.live("ta535s1hq2je").stream.updates():
    print(live_update.body)
__init__(live_thread: praw.models.reddit.live.LiveThread)

Create a LiveThreadStream instance.

Parameters:live_thread – The live thread associated with the stream.
updates(**stream_options) → Iterator[praw.models.reddit.live.LiveUpdate]

Yield new updates to the live thread as they become available.

Parameters:skip_existing – Set to True to only fetch items created after the stream (default: False).

As with LiveThread.updates(), updates are yielded as LiveUpdate.

Updates are yielded oldest first. Up to 100 historical updates will initially be returned.

Keyword arguments are passed to stream_generator().

For example, to retrieve all new updates made to the "ta535s1hq2je" live thread, try:

for live_update in reddit.live("ta535s1hq2je").stream.updates():
    print(live_update.body)

To only retrieve new updates starting from when the stream is created, pass skip_existing=True:

live_thread = reddit.live("ta535s1hq2je")
for live_update in live_thread.stream.updates(skip_existing=True):
    print(live_update.author)
