How to use the 'MESH_OT_extrude_verts_indiv' parameter?

I'm trying to extrude a single vertex several times in a loop for different directions. For that I'm using the function: bpy.ops.mesh.extrude_vertices_move(MESH_OT_extrude_verts_indiv=???,TRANSFORM_OT_translate={"value":(new_direction)})

If I use this function without the MESH_OT_extrude_verts_indiv it will extrude the last active vertex, wich is the one I just extruded. The problem is that I don't know what to put in MESH_OT_extrude_verts_indiv. I tried to put the vertex in that loop index, but I can't put a Vector type in it.

Can anyone give me an example of what to put in this MESH_OT_extrude_verts_indiv?

Here is my code:^

for k in range(0,5):
for v in bpy.context.active_object.data.vertices:
bpy.ops.mesh.extrude_vertices_move(MESH_OT_extrude_verts_indiv=v,TRANSFORM_OT_translate={"value":(v.co+new_direction)})

#new_direction is a random vector


Use bmesh

Strongly recommend using bmesh instead of bpy.ops.mesh whenever you can.

Here is my understanding of the script needed. Extrudes the individual selected vertices randomly a number of repeats.

The operators return dictionary has the newly created vertices and edges.

import bpy
import bmesh
from mathutils import Vector
from random import uniform

context = bpy.context
ob = context.edit_object # edit mode!
me = ob.data
bm = bmesh.from_edit_mesh(me)
verts = [v for v in bm.verts if v.select]
for repeats in range(5):
ret = bmesh.ops.extrude_vert_indiv(bm,
verts=verts)
for v in ret["verts"]:
v.co += Vector([uniform(-1, 1) for a in "xyz"])
verts = ret["verts"]

bmesh.update_edit_mesh(me)


If the idea is to extrude from the same vert repeat times, then remove the line

verts = ret["verts"}
