StyroBotPy

An extendable, plugin driven, discord bot framework based on Rapptz discord.py

Requirements

  • Python 3.5
  • discord.py
  • cleverbot.py
  • pafy
  • youtube-dl
  • yapsy
  • ffmpeg (if you want to use audio stuff)

Installing Dependencies

Option 1: Automatically

WINDOWS

  1. Run "InstallDependencies.bat"
  2. Download ffmpeg and make sure its in your PATH variable

LINUX

  1. Run "InstallDependencies.sh" OR "make install"
  2. Download ffmpeg with your favorite package manager

Option 2: Manually

WINDOWS & LINUX

  1. pip install -U discord.py[voice]
  2. pip install cleverbot
  3. pip install pafy
  4. pip install yapsy
  5. Download ffmpeg and make sure its in your PATH variable

Running with Python

WINDOWS

  1. Make sure Python 3.5 is installed and you have all necessary dependencies (see above section for more details).
  2. Run "RunWindows.bat"

Note: You will need to either replace the credentials.txt file in the /deps directory or have one in the root directory (the same location as RunWindows.bat). The bat file should automatically copy it to the /dist directory for you. If your credentials file is not properly setup, the bot won't login or work.

LINUX

  1. Make sure Python 3.5 is installed and you have all necessary dependencies (see above section for more details).
  2. Open a cmd window in the styrobot directory of your project folder
  3. Run "make copy" (first time only, see note)
  4. Run "make runpy" / "make rerun" (See note)

Note: The first time you run the bot, you need to run copy. This will make sure the code and dependencies are in the /dist directory. Afterwards, it should only be necssary to run "make rerun" if you've updated the code or "make runpy" if nothing has changed.

Bot Commands

Type "!help" in the chat to see a list of all the commands the bot supports as well as all the commands the plugins support!

Setting up your credentials file

The bot has been setup to use a file, credentials.txt, to login. This file has to be added by the user as they will obviously have their own credentials for their bot (see below on how to add a bot to a server). The credentials file is setup with two lines. The first being the application id and the second being the authentication token used to login. If you want to simplify this a little, feel free to modify the flow in styrobot.py (bottom of the file)! Your file will probably look something like this:

891234943217123478
ASDjkwq.jxASDfjioeqwkl.dasdASDFKJdj.2jKOLAs90ASDFjk2l1.kDEF

Adding a Bot to a Server

Once you've created your application and bot under your discord account, you can add that bot to a server. To do so, just paste this url into your browser, changing ### to whatever your application's id is. It will be the long number under App Details called "Client/Application ID".
