Discord started out as the "Slack" for avid gamers. But it quickly gained attention from developers and other audiences looking for a simple way to communicate and share information.
Today, you can create communities using your own private (or public) servers. It also comes with advanced features, like creating your own bot to automate certain processes.
If you're interested in creating your own Discord bot, then continue reading.
A Discord bot is a helpful little program that runs specific activities, including but not limited to:
It’s easy to add a Discord bot to your server and automate useful but repetitive and tedious tasks.
You don’t have to be a coding genius to do that. Just download a pre-made, AI-powered Discord bot and customize its functions.
To run and manage your Discord server successfully, you need to use a well-programmed bot.
There are two options to obtain one:
Buy a pre-made bot. Or make one from scratch yourself (or with the help of a freelance bot developer).
Most pre-made Discord bots are free but some require a one-time or ongoing subscription. You can also do a quick search online for Discord bots + (action you want to accomplish) to find a suitable bot.
But there’s no fun in that. So why not create your own? We’ll show you how to do so in a few quick steps.
The first step is to create a Discord Bot account. Without one, you can’t work with the Discord API or Python library.
Congrats! You’ve just created your Discord Bot account and your Discord bot. Now what? Invite it to your Discord server.
Now that you have your Discord bot, the next step is to write its code.
You’ll need the discord.py API wrapper for Discord and a browser-based IDE like Replit.
You can also write code for your Discord bot using any code editor locally on your computer.
Whether you run a private or public Discord server, it can be tiresome trying to manage all the repetitive tasks. Discord bots automate and simplify this process so you can focus on more important activities.
