PRAW Environment VariablesΒΆ

The 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 such values passed directly when initializing an instance of Reddit, as well as any such values contained in a praw.ini file.

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