A powerful asynchronous library for creating Discord bots in Python.

Project description


Hata is an async Discord API wrapper written in Python named after Hata no Kokoro.

Why hata?

  • Multiple simultaneous clients

    Hata can run multiple clients from the same instance without sacrificing performance, all while being easy to code.

  • Performant

    Fast concurrent code using async/await syntax, cache control, PyPy support and more!

  • Newest API features

    Whatever Discord decides to release/update/break Hata will support it natively in no time!

  • 100% Python

    Completely relies on Python! Easy to read, easy to understand, easy to code.

Why not hata?

  • Small community

    Hata has a small and slowly increasing community. The chance of getting help outside of our cosy discord server equals to zero.


The following example answers on ping message.

from hata import Client

Nue = Client('TOKEN')
async def ready(client):
    print(f'{client:f} logged in.')
async def message_create(client, message):

    if message.content == 'ping':
        await client.message_create(, 'pong')


An improved example using the commands extension to handle common use cases.

from hata import Client

Saki = Client('TOKEN', extensions='commands', prefix='s!')
async def ready(client):
    print(f'{client:f} logged in.')

async def ping(client, message):
    return 'pong'


Or use slash commands!

from hata import Client, Guild

GUILD = Guild.precreate(guild_id)

Seija = Client('TOKEN', extensions='slash')
async def ready(client):
    print(f'{client:f} logged in.')

async def ping():
    return 'pong'


Note: You need to restart your client, or the slash command wont show up. If there are more than 50 integrations (bots) in a guild, some of the (integrations) bots wont be able to use slash commands. This is currently a Discord limitation.

If you wonder, how to run up more clients, just put the two code snippet into the same file.

Hata leaves the main thread free, client.start() blocks it only till the client logs in (or fails it), although you can still use the start_clients function, what as it says, starts up all the non-running clients parallelly, so go ahead and start python with -i option, then interact with the clients from your interactive console in runtime.

Installing guide

To install the package use:

# Linux/OS X
$ python3 -m pip install hata

# Windows
$ python -m pip install hata

Hata has native pypy support as well if you need some more speed!
