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.

  • Node.js, an open-source, cross-platform, back-end JavaScript runtime environment
  • 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

I learned how to interface with the Discord API while getting used to the JavaScript syntax.

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)
