Tutorial: Building a Discord bot with Node.js
This is the Node.js version of my tutorial on building Discord chatbot's (the other version is in Python). I'm watching the comments here and at codementor, so shout if you have any questions!
1)Could you do all of the steps in a browser or do you need the app to do it?
2)Is the code too advanced for a beginner, or is it do able with the basics?
I am a newbie in programming "for now" and I was interested in this challenge hoping that I could learn some js during the process. I would also love some tips for how to learn a language for a beginner like myself.
I would also like to hear your opinion on Rust, which I am attempting to learn. Things like is it too hard for a new comer and if it is worth learning
@Brawn To try and answer your questions:
- Yes. Repl.it has a built-in IDE that can work in Node.js, and you can access Discord in the browser (though I'd personally recommend to use the app).
- I would say that a Discord bot is a great way to start programming. You'll be working with mostly discord.js' functions, which read very much like English, and only need to know things like if statements, and for loops.
As for Rust, I've never played it so I can't comment.
Hope this helped!
everytime i run a bot (or try to) it says "node: not found" and "exit status 127". yes the replit file does have run = "node bot.js" instead of any other variant/mistake of it
@tomatosoup1 did you fork the repl linked in the tutorial? I just tried and it worked fine for me. (You also have to add a token from Discord, as described in the tutorial).
It is a bit outdated -- e.g. the
.env file isn't used any more, so we will update this one soon!
I'm Japanese so I can't write English well. I'm sorry.
I have a question.
I can't run my project. There is sentence in console.
It is "exit status 127".
So I can't run my project.
