Continuing my trend of trying to learn new things in Python, I have most recently been spending some time playing around the with Discord API. This was interesting to me for a few reasons: I use Discord to communicate with my friends when we play games on the PC; additionally, I’ve always had an interest in chat rooms and the way the protocols work (in the past, I’ve programmed a number of IRC bots).
This bot utilizes a library known as “Discord.py” which is freely available on Github. Additionally, I’ve uploaded all my code to my Github page. It’s fairly rudimentary, but if you were ever interested in running a Discord bot of your own, it should be easy to modify for your own needs.
