DiscordGo

GoDoc Go report Build Status Discord Gophers Discord API

DiscordGo is a Go package that provides low level bindings to the Discord chat client API. DiscordGo has nearly complete support for all of the Discord API endpoints, websocket interface, and voice interface.

If you would like to help the DiscordGo package please use this link to add the official DiscordGo test bot dgo to your server. This provides indispensable help to this project.

  • See dgVoice package for an example of additional voice helper functions and features for DiscordGo.

  • See dca for an experimental stand alone tool that wraps ffmpeg to create opus encoded audio appropriate for use with Discord (and DiscordGo).

For help with this package or general Go discussion, please join the Discord Gophers chat server.

Usage

Import the package into your project.

See Documentation and Examples below for more detailed information.

Documentation

NOTICE: This library and the Discord API are unfinished. Because of that there may be major changes to library in the future.

The DiscordGo code is fairly well documented at this point and is currently the only documentation available. Both GoDoc and GoWalker (below) present that information in a nice format.

  • GoDoc
  • Go Walker
  • Hand crafted documentation coming eventually.

Examples

Below is a list of examples and other projects using DiscordGo. Please submit an issue if you would like your project added or removed from this list.

Troubleshooting

For help with common problems please reference the Troubleshooting section of the project wiki.

Contributing

Contributions are very welcomed, however please follow the below guidelines.

  • First open an issue describing the bug or enhancement so it can be discussed.
  • Try to match current naming conventions as closely as possible.
  • This package is intended to be a low level direct mapping of the Discord API, so please avoid adding enhancements outside of that scope without first discussing it.
  • Create a Pull Request with your changes against the master branch.
