A Python wrapper for the Discord API
A modern, easy to use, feature-rich, and async ready API wrapper for Discord written in Python.
All the contributors and developers, associated with disnake, are trying their best to add new features to the library as soon as possible. We strive to revive the greatest Python wrapper for Discord API and keep it up to date.
Modern Pythonic API using async and await.
Added features for ease of coding
Proper rate limit handling.
Optimised in both speed and memory.
Python 3.8 or higher is required
To install the library without full voice support, you can just run the following command:
# Linux/macOS python3 -m pip install -U disnake # Windows py -3 -m pip install -U disnake
Otherwise to get voice support you should run the following command:
# Linux/macOS python3 -m pip install -U "disnake[voice]" # Windows py -3 -m pip install -U disnake[voice]
To install the development version, do the following:
$ git clone https://github.com/EQUENOS/disnake $ cd disnake $ python3 -m pip install -U .[voice]
PyNaCl (for voice support)
Please note that on Linux installing voice you must install the following packages via your favourite package manager (e.g. apt, dnf, etc) before running the above commands:
libffi-dev (or libffi-devel on some systems)
python-dev (e.g. python3.6-dev for Python 3.6)
import disnake class MyClient(disnake.Client): async def on_ready(self): print('Logged on as', self.user) async def on_message(self, message): # don't respond to ourselves if message.author == self.user: return if message.content == 'ping': await message.channel.send('pong') client = MyClient() client.run('token')
import disnake from disnake.ext import commands bot = commands.Bot(command_prefix='>') @bot.command() async def ping(ctx): await ctx.send('pong') bot.run('token')
Slash Commands Example
import disnake from disnake.ext import commands bot = commands.Bot(command_prefix='>', test_guilds=) @bot.slash_command() async def ping(inter): await inter.response.send_message('pong') bot.run('token')
Making your application more efficient
As your application scales, you may need to adjust some things to keep it performing nicely.
Python optimisation flags
CPython provides two optimisation flags that remove internal safety checks that are useful for development, and change other internal settings in the interpreter.
python bot.py - no optimisation - this is the default.
python -O bot.py - first level optimisation - features such as internal assertions will be disabled.
python -OO bot.py - second level optimisation - more features (including all docstrings) will be removed from the loaded code at runtime.
A minimum of first level of optimizations is recommended when running bots in a production environment.
If you have a C compiler (Microsoft VC++ Redistributable 14.0 or newer, or a modern copy of GCC/G++, Clang, etc), you can install Disnake using pip install -U disnake[speed]. This will install aiodns, cchardet & Brotli which will provide you with a small performance boost.
If you use a UNIX-like system, you will get additional performance benefits from using a library called uvloop. This replaces the default asyncio event loop with one that uses libuv internally. You can run pip install uvloop and then amend your script to be something similar to the following example to utilise it in your application:
import os from disnake.ext import commands if os.name != "nt": import uvloop uvloop.install() bot = commands.Bot(...) ...
