This package is built off of the Orator ORM and most of the commands work the same way as in their documentation.


dbot new bot_project --token=8675309

Would create a new full bot project directory called bot_project and will download the latest version of the discord bot framework. You can always change the token and your database connections in the config.yaml file in your projects main directory.

CD into the project directory and you can easily add a cog/command using the make command:

dbot make:cog new_cog
dbot make:command new_command

If you don’t need something so complex, you can use the -s or --simple flag. This will create a basic single file discord bot:

dbot new simple_bot -s -t 8675309




This project is licensed under MIT - see the LICENSE file for details.


Here is the bot scaffolding the cli will download.

Different versions can be specified with the -b, --branch=BRANCH option for the new command.

  • Added a -s / --simple option to the new command that will create a simple single bot file. For when you don’t need something so robust. Example dbot new simple_bot -s -t 8675309
  • Added a docstring command to generate information about a table. Example dbot docstring user_table
