🎹 Discord Music Bots Native Support 🥁
At Repl.it we believe programming should useful, fun, and exciting. Discord bots have been something people loved to make with Repl.it ever since we enabled outbound network connections from repls (yes, we used to disable networking).
Discord music bots, however, didn't work very well if at all. At first, OPUS was missing from our Python environment. Then we also inadvertently blocked voice connections from our servers. So all in all it was a pain. However, today, I'm excited to announce that Music Bots natively work on Repl.it.
The only thing that's currently missing from our images is native ffmpeg support, but that can be worked around by installing ffmpeg-static from npm. I just added the following Python repl to templates to make it easy for you to get started.
I know it works in Node.js too but I didn't have the time to make a nice template. If anyone can make a very simple template for Node.js I'd love to include it in our template library.
@expensivesalt80 From what I see the bot doesn’t have a prefix. To change it go to the bottom of the main.py code and find where it says bot = commands.Bot(‘music.’, description=‘Yet another music bot.’). Once you have found that change it to bot = commands.Bot(‘music.’, description=‘Yet another music bot.’, command_prefix = ‘yourprefix’). I hope this helps you and others that may see this message :)
