With Python, I have a userlist with a bunch of userids [1234,321,1203,2348,45955] and so forth. I'm trying to pass the userids into the api.LookupUser function.
This function usually takes one user_id at a time. For example, api.LookupUser(user_id=123)
Is there an easy way to pass each value from the userlist into the function?
I think you are looking for this
users = (api.LookupUser(user_id=x) for x in userids)
Or, at least in Python3,
users = map(api.LookupUser, userids)
And these return a generator, so you'll call
next(users) to get the next value. I believe this also delays the API call, so you aren't getting all the users at once and bogging down the API
So, looping though that generator
for u in users: print(u)
