An (a)sync wrapper for discord webhooks

Project description

Discord Webhooks

Interact with discord webhooks using python.

Travis Documentation Status Py Versions PyPi LICENSE

This simple library enables you to easily interact with discord webhooks, allowing you to easily format discord messages and discord embeds, retrieve webhook information, modify and delete webhooks. Asynchronous usage is also supported.


To install the library simply use pip.

pip install dhooks

If you would also like to get the latest version of dhooks from GitHub, build docs, run tests or run examples, you may want to install dhooks with the optional extended dependencies.

git clone
cd dhooks
pip install .[tests,docs,examples]

Quick Start

Sending Messages:

from dhooks import Webhook

hook = Webhook('url')

hook.send("Hello there! I'm a webhook :open_mouth:")

Discord Embeds:

You can easily format and send embeds using this library.

Note: Embed objects from are also compatible with this library.

from dhooks import Webhook, Embed

hook = Webhook('url')

embed = Embed(
    description='This is the **description** of the embed! :smiley:',
    timestamp='now'  # sets the timestamp to current time

image1 = ''
image2 = ''

embed.set_author(name='Author Goes Here', icon_url=image1)
embed.add_field(name='Test Field', value='Value of the field :open_mouth:')
embed.add_field(name='Another Field', value='1234 :smile:')
embed.set_footer(text='Here is my footer text', icon_url=image1)



Sending Files:

You can easily send files as shown.

from dhooks import Webhook, File
from io import BytesIO
import requests

hook = Webhook('url')

file = File('path/to/file.png', name='cat.png')  # optional name for discord

hook.send('Look at this:', file=file)

You can also pass a file-like object:

response = requests.get('')
file = File(BytesIO(response.content), name='wow.png')

hook.send('Another one:', file=file)

Get Webhook Info:

You can get some basic information related to the webhook through Discord's API.


The following attributes will be populated with data from discord:

  • hook.guild_id
  • hook.channel_id
  • hook.default_name
  • hook.default_avatar_url

Modify and Delete Webhooks:

You can change the default name and avatar of a webhook easily.

with open('img.png', rb) as f:
    img =  # bytes

hook.modify(name='Bob', avatar=img)

hook.delete()  # webhook deleted permanently

Asynchronous Usage:

To asynchronously make requests using aiohttp, simply use Webhook.Async to create the object. An example is as follows. Simply use the await keyword when calling API methods.

from dhooks import Webhook

async def main():
    hook = Webhook.Async('url')

    await hook.send('hello')
    await hook.modify('bob')
    await hook.get_info()
    await hook.delete()

    await hook.close()  # close the client session

Alternatively you can use an async with block (asynchronous context manager) to automatically close the session once finished.

async def main():
    async with Webhook.Async('url') as hook:
        await hook.send('hello')


You can find the full API reference here.
