You want to write code and add new things or fix a bug?
First, please open a new issue so we can discuss the changes you want to make.
After that, it's just fork, clone to your computer, and when you're done, open a pull request!
Most of the code should be commented, and once you're in, you should understand how everything works.
For info, the bot still contains a lot of code from a very early version that can be rewritten.

🚀 Running AniSearch

Self-hosting isn't fully supported and I don't recommend you to self-host the bot unless you want to contribute to the code.

That's why I would prefer if you don't run an instance of my bot and recommend everyone to use the official instance instead, which you can add it to your Discord server here!

Nevertheless, the installation steps are as follows:

Introduction

The bot and the associated admin panel can be run either as a Docker containers or manually. The admin panel can be accessed via port 5000 by default.

Requirements:

1. ⚙️ Set up the Bot

  1. Clone the repository.

    $ git clone https://github.com/IchBinLeoon/anisearch-discord-bot
    
  2. Change the working directory.

    $ cd anisearch-discord-bot
    
  3. Create a Discord Application.

  4. Rename .env.example to .env.

  5. Edit .env and fill in BOT_TOKEN, BOT_OWNER_ID and BOT_SAUCENAO_API_KEY.

    # The token the bot will use for auth with Discord.
    BOT_TOKEN=
    
    # The Discord ID of the user hosting the bot.
    BOT_OWNER_ID=
    
    # The SauceNAO API key. Is required for the `source` command.
    BOT_SAUCENAO_API_KEY=
    

2. Run

🐳 Docker

  1. Make sure Docker and Docker-Compose are installed.

  2. Build the images and run the bot, admin panel and database.

    $ docker-compose up --build
    

🔧 Manually

  1. To be able to use the bot you need to set up a PostgreSQL Database. Make sure the tables are set up correctly as shown below to successfully connect to your database. Type the following in your PSQL Tool:

    CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS guilds (id bigint, prefix VARCHAR (5));
    CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS users (id bigint, anilist VARCHAR (255), myanimelist VARCHAR (255), kitsu VARCHAR (255));
    
  2. Edit .env and change BOT_API_HOST and WEB_HOST to localhost or to the IP address of the device the bot and admin panel are running on. Also change the credentials for the Postgres database to match yours.

  3. Bot

    • Make sure you have Python 3.8 or higher.

    • Change the working directory.

      $ cd bot
      
    • Set up and activate a venv.

      $ python3 -m venv venv
      $ source venv/bin/activate # On macOS and Linux
      $ .\venv\Scripts\activate # On Windows
      
    • Install the requirements.

      $ python -m pip install -r requirements.txt
      
    • Run the bot.

      $ python -m anisearch
      
  4. Admin Panel

    • Make sure you have Go 1.16 or higher.

    • Change the working directory.

      $ cd web
      
    • Build the executable.

      $ go build .
      
    • Run the admin panel.

      $ ./web # On macOS and Linux
      $ web.exe # On Windows
