comments_list.rb

In this tutorial we can just use the radiator library, interaction with Blockchain. Root post selection is done by command-line arguments. First, we ask the blockchain for the replies on a post or comment. Then, we grab the authors of those replies and list them, followed by the total comments count.

api.get_content_replies(author, permlink) do |replies|
  reply_authors = replies.map{|reply| reply.author}
  reply_authors = reply_authors.uniq.join("\n\t")
  puts "Replies by:\n\t#{reply_authors}"
  puts "Total replies: #{replies.size}"
end

The example of results returned from the service:
