Keyword Analysis of a Reddit Thread with Google Colab and PRAW

I am going to show you how I analysed the topics of discussion within a Reddit Thread by reviewing the most common key words within the comments. I will cover:

  • Extracting and storing the comments.
  • Cleaning the text
  • Identifying the common words
  • Identifying chosen key words

Rather than writing both the code and explanation in Medium. I have provide a Google Colab notebook template for you to extract, store and review your own Reddit Thread. Here’s the link and if you use it, in return I ask you clap for me :).

Also if you’re interested in learning Python and executing all the cool automated projects you have swirling in your head then DataCamp’s platform is perfect for you. I think the best part isn’t the 355+ courses from Python, SQL or Tableau but the mobile app to practice on, a live community to hold you accountable and skill assessments to perfect your skills.

Any feedback would be appreciated.
