Another simple class wrapper for interacting with Discord webhooks in Python 3
dhooks-lite is a library with a set of classes for interacting with Discord webhooks written in Python 3.
This library aims to differentiate itself from similar libraries with the following properties:
- is fully tested
- simple to use (only one way of doing things, same name of attributes and objects as in the official Discord documentation)
- has logging
- requests are automatically retried and have sensible timeouts
This library provides following functionality:
- Posting messages in Discord channels via webhooks (synchronous calls only)
- Attaching Embeds to messages
- Retrieve send reports and from Discord
- Retrieve HTTP status and headers from Discord, e.g. for implementing rate limit handling
Here are some examples on how to use dhooks-lite in your Python scripts.
Note that you also find the source code of all examples in the
/examples folder of this repo.
Minimal example for posting a message.
from dhooks_lite import Webhook hook = Webhook(DISCORD_WEBHOOK_URL) hook.execute('Hello, World!')
Posting with custom avatar
In this example we are setting username and avatar.
from dhooks_lite import Webhook hook = Webhook( DISCORD_WEBHOOK_URL, username='Bruce Wayne', avatar_url='https://i.imgur.com/thK8erv.png' ) hook.execute('I am Batman!')
Complete example with embeds
Finally, here is an example for posting a message with two embeds and using all available features (shortened):
import datetime from dhooks_lite import Webhook, Embed, Footer, Image, Thumbnail, Author, Field hook = Webhook(DISCORD_WEBHOOK_URL) e1 = Embed( description='Only a few years ago, scientists stumbled upon an electrical current of cosmic proportions.(...)', title='Universe\'s highest electric current found', url='https://www.newscientist.com/article/mg21028174-900-universes-highest-electric-current-found/', timestamp=datetime.datetime.utcnow(), color=0x5CDBF0, footer=Footer( 'Science Department', 'https://i.imgur.com/Bgsv04h.png' ), image=Image('https://i.imgur.com/eis1Y0P.jpg'), thumbnail=Thumbnail('https://i.imgur.com/2A4k28x.jpg'), author=Author( 'John Scientist', url='https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert_Einstein', icon_url='https://i.imgur.com/1JoHDw1.png' ), fields=[ Field('1st Measurement', 'Failed'), Field('2nd Measurement', 'Succeeded') ] ) e2 = Embed(description="TOP SECRET - Do not distribute!") hook.execute( 'Checkout this new report from the science department:', username='Bruce Wayne', avatar_url='https://i.imgur.com/thK8erv.png', embeds=[e1, e2], wait_for_response=True )
