PRAW Environment Variables#

The second-highest priority configuration options can be passed to a program via environment variables prefixed with praw_.

For example, you can invoke your script as follows:

praw_username=bboe praw_password=not_my_password python

The username and password provided via environment variables will override any values contained in a praw.ini file, but not any variables passed in through Reddit.

All Configuration Options can be provided in this manner, except for custom options.
