To install the library without full voice support, you can just run the following command:
# Linux/macOS python3 -m pip install -U discord.py # Windows py -3 -m pip install -U discord.py
Otherwise to get voice support you should run the following command:
# Linux/macOS python3 -m pip install -U "discord.py[voice]" # Windows py -3 -m pip install -U discord.py[voice]
To install the development version, do the following:
$ git clone https://github.com/Rapptz/discord.py $ cd discord.py $ python3 -m pip install -U .[voice]
- PyNaCl (for voice support)
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)
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')
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')
