A sane Discord API for Python 3 built on asyncio and good intentions
An opinionated, static typed Discord API for Python3 and asyncio.
Built on good intentions and the hope that it will be extendable and reusable, rather than an obstacle for future development.
import hikari bot = hikari.Bot(token="...") @bot.listen() async def ping(event: hikari.MessageCreateEvent) -> None: # If a non-bot user sends a message "hk.ping", respond with "Pong!" if not event.message.author.is_bot and event.message.content.startswith("hk.ping"): await event.message.reply("Pong!") bot.run()
Events are determined by the type annotation on the event parameter, or
alternatively as a type passed to the
@bot.listen() decorator, if you do not
want to use type hints.
@bot.listen(hikari.MessageCreateEvent) async def ping(event): ...
Install hikari from PyPI with the following command:
python -m pip install hikari -U --pre # Windows users may need to run this instead... py -3 -m pip install hikari -U --pre
You may wish to use a command framework on top of Hikari so that you can start writing a bot quickly without implementing your own command handler.
Hikari does not include a command framework by default, so you will want to pick a third party library to do it.
lightbulb- a simple and easy to use command framework for Hikari.
If you wish to contribute something, you should first start by cloning the repository.
The first thing you should run is
pip install nox to install nox. This handles
running predefined tasks and pipelines.
To initialize a development environment and install everything you need, simply
nox -s init. This will create a venv and install everything you need in it
to get started.
Once this is complete, you can run
nox without any arguments to ensure
everything builds and is correct.
