LightDiscord

🤖 An ultra light library to develop discord bots with Python

Get lightdiscord

To install the library, you can just run the following command:

# Linux/macOS
python3 -m pip install -U lightdiscord

# Windows
py -3 -m pip install -U lightdiscord

Key features

⚠️ If the size of the library and the proximity with the discord api is not absolutely necessary for you, https://github.com/Rapptz/discord.py may be a better option.

  • Easy to use and quick to learn
  • Currently the smallest alternative to discord.py
  • Support custom listeners
  • Support multiple bot instances
  • Full support for Bot and User accounts
  • Support proxies
  • Customizable user agent
  • Low level: directly interact with the discord api and manage cache as you want

How to use?

First, you need to import lightdiscord. You can then create a bot object, specify a token and optional features:

  • user: A boolean (True for user accounts, False by default)
  • listeners: A dictionnary containing your events listeners and the API endpoint
  • proxy: A proxy (None for no proxies, None by default)
  • user_agent: The user agent sent to discord
bot = lightdiscord.Bot(
    "YOUR_TOKEN", listeners={"READY": on_ready}
)

To start the bot, you need to use an async function. Here is an example with asyncio

import asyncio

async def main(loop):
    await bot.start()

if __name__ == "__main__":
    loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()
    loop.run_until_complete(main(loop))
    loop.run_forever()
