“Barb” is what fans of Nicki Minaj call themselves
Nicki Minaj is one of the most well known female rappers, as well as one of my favorite artists, so I wanted to create a fun project dedicated around her. As classes started becoming remote, many students at my school turned to discord as a way of communication. I noticed discord has some pretty cool bots like the “Rythm” music bot and the “Dank Memer” bot, so it inspired me to make my own!
What it does
The website allows users to view the commands and add the bot to their own server! At the bottom of the page, there are spotify albums where the users can stream a snippet of one of Nicki’s songs.
The Discord bot currently has three commands which perform the following: Sends a random picture of Nicki Minaj to the chat Sends a picture of a mentioned user’s profile picture with a Barb overlay on top Joins a voice call and plays an audio clip of Nicki Minaj
How we built it
For the Website: I used Qoom and coded mainly in css and html. I also used Canva to create images/designs and the spotify developer website to get the embed code for the albums at the bottom of the page.
Challenges we ran into
The last time I coded a Discord bot was about 9 months ago, so I went into this project with the knowledge I previously had. However, there was an update to Discord.js (that I didn’t know about) which resulted in a lot of my code not working.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
What we learned
What's next for Nicki Minaj Discord Bot + Website
The code is very messy and there are definitely bugs in the bot, so I would like to clean up the code for the commands in the bot, add more commands to the bot, and make the website more responsive! I also plan to move the code onto my raspberry pi so the bot could be online 24/7
note: if anyone adds this bot to their own server, it might not be online due to the above!
