Do you need more help? Visit my server here: https://discord.gg/DpxkY3x
Useful to always have
Keep this saved somewhere, as this is the docs to discord.py@rewrite. All you need to know about the library is defined inside here, even code that I don't use in this example is here.
- Flake8 - Python Module (Keeps your code clean)
- If you're using python 3.7, install by doing
pip install -e git+https://gitlab.com/pycqa/flake8#egg=flake8
- PM2 - NodeJS Module (Keeps the bot alive)
- Requires NodeJS - https://nodejs.org/en/download/
How to setup
Make a bot here and grab the token
Rename the file config.json.example to config.json, then fill in the required spots, such as token, prefix and game
To install what you need, do pip install -r requirements.txt
(If that doesn't work, do python -m pip install -r requirements.txt)
NOTE: Use pip install with Administrator/sudo
Start the bot by having the cmd/terminal inside the bot folder and type python index.py
You're done, enjoy your bot!
Q: I don't see my bot on my server!
A: Invite it by using this URL: https://discordapp.com/oauth2/authorize?client_id=CLIENT_ID&scope=bot
Remember to replace CLIENT_ID with your bot client ID
Q: There aren't that many commands here...
A: Yes, I will only provide a few commands to get you started, maybe adding more later.
