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. python3.8-dev for Python 3.8)
import nextcord from nextcord.ext import commands bot = commands.Bot() @bot.slash_command(description="Replies with pong!") async def ping(interaction: nextcord.Interaction): await interaction.send("Pong!", ephemeral=True) 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.
