Project description

PyPI version info PyPI supported Python versions

A modern, easy to use, feature-rich, and async ready API wrapper for Discord written in Python.

The Future of discord.py

Please read the gist for the future of the original project. This is just a fork of it. feel free to contribute in order of keeping it alife!

Key Features

  • Modern Pythonic API using async and await.
  • Proper rate limit handling.
  • Optimised in both speed and memory.

Installing

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 discord.py-fork-vvc

# Windows
py -3 -m pip install -U discord.py-fork-vvc

Otherwise to get voice support you should run the following command:

# Linux/macOS
python3 -m pip install -U "discord.py-fork-vvc[voice]"

# Windows
py -3 -m pip install -U discord.py-fork-vvc[voice]

To install the development version, do the following:

$ git clone https://github.com/veni-vidi-code/discord.py
$ cd discord.py
$ python3 -m pip install -U .[voice]

Optional Packages

Please note that i will not fork this package and do not plan on doing so. 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)

Quick Example

import discord

class MyClient(discord.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')

Bot Example

import discord
from discord.ext import commands

bot = commands.Bot(command_prefix='>')

@bot.command()
async def ping(ctx):
    await ctx.send('pong')

bot.run('token')
