1. Visit the Discord Developer Portal. Establish an application.

Under the "Bot" section simply click on "Add Bot" to generate a bot user. Remember to save the token provided for your bot. In the Lazy Builder head over to the Environment Secrets tab. Create a secret labeled as `DISCORD_BOT_TOKEN`. Paste the copied token, as its value. To test it out just hit the Test Button.

!addCommand !. Your unique response goes here

For instance if you wish for the bot to reply with "Hello, world!" upon someone typing `!greet` simply input;

!addCommand !greet Hello, world!

When someone types `!greet`, on your Discord server the bot will greet them with a Hello, world!"
