Pycord Guide

The official Guide for Pycord, explaining Pycord's features and how to use them.


Currently deployed from


The Guide is meant to serve as a professional guide to all of Pycord's features. This also means that everything is critiqued to end up at the best quality. If a part of the guide doesn't make these expectations it will either be refactored, or redone.


For contributing rules, please visit this page.

The Guide is built using Docusaurus 2, a modern static website generator.

/src contains styling (.scss) and the index (.tsx/jsx).

/docs contains the pages for the guide. The Guide Pages are written in the mdx file format, a combination of Markdown syntax and JSX/React.

Local Development

First, you need to clone the repository:

git clone

Installing Requirements

You need to install the requirements for the guide, which you may do by running the following command:


Starting the Server

Then, you can start the server by running the following command:

yarn start

This command starts a local development server and opens up a browser window. Most changes are reflected live without having to restart the server.

Building the Website

Then, you can build the website by running the following command:

yarn build

This command generates static content into the build directory and can be served using any static contents hosting service.


Using SSH:

USE_SSH=true yarn deploy

Without SSH:

GIT_USER=<Your GitHub username> yarn deploy

If you are using GitHub pages for hosting, this command is a convenient way to build the website and push to the gh-pages branch.
