Getting posts of BitClout User

Getting posts of BitClout User

Just like the twitter API that gives tweet content and other information about tweets of users, BitClout API also offers the same feature but additionally, it also provides much more information about user's posts!

You can fetch any user's N number of posts through username. All you need is to make a POST request to https://bitclout.com/api/v0/get-posts-for-public-key

Below is a python code that fetches desired number of posts of any user:

import json
import requests

def getPostsOfUser(username, numberOfPosts):
  payload= {"PublicKeyBase58Check":"","Username":username,"ReaderPublicKeyBase58Check":"BC1YLhBLE1834FBJbQ9JU23JbPanNYMkUsdpJZrFVqNGsCe7YadYiUg","NumToFetch":numberOfPosts}
  #here ReaderPublicKeyBase58Check means the reader of the post. You can leave it as it is or just use your own public key. 
  response = requests.post(url="https://bitclout.com/api/v0/get-posts-for-public-key", json=payload)

  file = open("postsOfUser.json", "w")
  json.dump(response.json(), file)
  file.close()
  return response.status_code

if __name__ == "__main__":
  user = "ItsAditya"
  print(getPostsOfUser(user, 20))

If on execution of the above code prints response code 200, a new file named postsOfUser.json will be created that contains 20 posts by that user (Reclouts included) The response JSON file looks like this
