    Yeah, I know PRAW has some issues with long threads. Well, respectively it uses the CommentForest class to collapse comments, so I just have to unfold those and scan the entire thread. It works quite well, actually! I have found PRAW to be by far the best Reddit API wrapper, and am the creator of aPRAW, so a lot of things were inspired by PRAW.

    Also, if you're doing this within a web framework like flask or any of the other popular python ones, I highly recommend using prawasync. Praw itself isn't thread safe, so if you create a praw instance somewhere and then reuse it, there's a small chance it gets corrupted.
  • migrating from praw to async praw and I'm having problems

    Hey there! I would recommend checking out the docs at https://asyncpraw.readthedocs.io first.

    If you check out the documentation https://github.com/praw-dev/asyncpraw there are a few examples. If I had to guess, the problem lies with the for loop / Asunción.sleep. You should do something like ‘await subreddit.new(limit=1)’ and not ‘await Asunción.sleep(10)’. I don’t actually have any experience with the async praw wrapper, but typically you need to wait for the action to be complete and not just waiting an arbitrary amount of time
