I was in the midst of researching for a new programming project that I wanted to do when the idea of making a Discord bot stumbled into my mind.
What it does
A wonderful Discord bot that helps motivate people in various ways!
How I built it
I used the following APIs to accomplish this project.
- Discord.js, a powerful Node.js module that allows a user to interact with the Discord API easily
Challenges I ran into
Getting the basic commands setup correctly was the hardest step in the project.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
The bot can take in a simple command from the user and it returns a sweet motivational message to the sending user.
What I learned
What's next for Brinley The Motivational Bot
I plan to add in a command that supports a user to mention a single target user to focus the motivation on that one user (e.g. br!motivate @Wumpus)
