A Python wrapper for the Discord API forked from discord.py
A modern, easy-to-use, feature-rich, and async-ready API wrapper for Discord written in Python.
This is a fork of discord.py, which unfortunately has been officially discontinued on 28th August 2021. Nextcord will try to replace discord.py, with continued support and features, to still offer former discord.py users a stable API wrapper for their bots.
- Modern Pythonic API using async and await
- 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 nextcord # Windows py -3 -m pip install -U nextcord
Otherwise to get voice support you should run the following command:
# Linux/macOS python3 -m pip install -U "nextcord[voice]" # Windows py -3 -m pip install -U nextcord[voice]
To install additional packages for speedup, run the following command:
# Linux/macOS python3 -m pip install -U "nextcord[speed]" # Windows py -3 -m pip install -U nextcord[speed]
To install the development version, do the following:
$ git clone https://github.com/nextcord/nextcord/ $ cd nextcord $ python3 -m pip install -U .[voice]
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)
from nextcord.ext import commands bot = commands.Bot(command_prefix='$') @bot.command() async def ping(ctx): await ctx.reply('Pong!') bot.run('token')
You can find more examples in the examples directory.
NOTE: It is not advised to leave your token directly in your code, as it allows anyone with it to access your bot. If you intend to make your code public you should store it securely.
