An intro to hikari
This repo provides some simple examples to get you started with hikari. Contained in this repo are bots designed with both the hikari-lightbulb and hikari-tanjun command handlers. This repo is designed with extra stability in mind, but if you want newer features, check out this experimental repo.
You can install the necessary requirements by doing:pip install -r requirements.txt
There is a little bit of setup you need to do before testing the bots.
- Create a file called "token" in a directory called "secrets", and put your bot's token in there.
- Change the
GUILD_IDvariable to your own guild's ID. This is in the __init__ file for the hikari-lightbulb bot, and the __main__ file for the hikari-tanjun bot.
Testing the bots
This library sports a very discord.py-like syntax, making for an easier time migrating for those wishing to switch. It is less powerful than hikari-tanjun, but is the more stable of the two options at present.
To run the hikari-lightbulb bot:python -OO -m lightbulb_bot
This library has a syntax far more similar to click, a CLI app builder that relies almost entirely on the usage of decorators. It is more powerful than hikari-lightbulb with better support for slash commands and interactions, but does not currently have a stable version. The version this repo currently uses is the unreleased v2.0.0a1 version.
To run the hikari-tanjun bot:python -OO -m tanjun_bot
