Development Requirements

Runtime Requirements

  • .NET 8.0 SDK or newer to run from sources
    • bot needs dotnet command to be available (i.e. alias for the Snap package)
  • Optionally Google API credentials to access Google Drive:
    • Create new project in the Google Cloud Resource Manager
    • Select the project and enable Google Drive API
    • Open API & Services Credentials
    • Create new credentials:
      • Service account credentials
      • New service account
        • if you select an existing account, new credentials will be generated in addition to previous any ones
      • Role Project > Viewer
      • Key type JSON
      • Create will generate a configuration file
    • Save said configuration file as credentials.json in user secrets folder
      • e.g on Linux this will be ~/.microsoft/usersecrets/c2e6548b-b215-4a18-a010-958ef294b310/credentials.json

How to Build

  • Change configuration for test server in CompatBot/Properties/launchSettings.json
  • Note that token could be set in the settings or supplied as a launch argument (higher priority)
  • If you've changed the database model, add a migration
    • $ dotnet tool install --global dotnet-ef (if you have never installed the tools before)
    • $ cd CompatBot
    • $ dotnet ef migrations add -c [BotDb|ThumbnailDb] MigrationName
    • $ cd ..
  • $ cd CompatBot
  • $ dotnet run [token]

How to Run in Production

Running from source

  • Change configuration if needed (probably just token):
    • use $ dotnet user-secrets set Token <your_token_here>
    • for available configuration variables, see Config.cs
  • Put bot.db in CompatBot/ if you have one
  • $ cd CompatBot
  • $ dotnet run -c Release

Running with Docker

  • Official image is hosted on Docker Hub.
  • You should pull images tagged with release-latest (same thing as latest)
  • Please take a look at the docker-compose.yml for required configuration (bot token and mounting points for persistent data).
