Discord quote bot

Project description


Forebodere is a quotation bot for Discord, using the Whoosh search engine for quote lookups.



To run the bot directly with python, you should install the requirements in a clean virtualenv and run the package, passing the path to hord and the discord bot token (which can also be inferred from the $DISCORD_TOKEN environment variable):

virtualenv .venv -p python3.6
source .venv/bin/activate

pip install -r requirements.txt
python -m forebodere --hord '/path/to/forebodere.hord' --token 'DISCORD_TOKEN'


A repository exists on Dockerhub for Forebodere, which can be pulled:

docker pull autophagy/forebodere:latest

However, this will not run on ARM processors, like those on Raspberry Pi machines. Instead, you should build the image directly on the machine:

docker build -t autophagy/forebodere:latest .

You can then run the docker image by setting the DISCORD_TOKEN environment variable

docker run -d -e DISCORD_TOKEN="TOKEN" autophagy/forebodere:latest

However, due to the ephemeral nature of containers, the Quote DB will be deleted upon container destruction. To create a persistant quote DB, pass in the forebodere.hord as a volume:

docker run -d -v /path/to/forebodere.hord:/app/forebodere.hord -e DISCORD_TOKEN="TOKEN" autophagy/forebodere:latest
