About this template

This Discord bot is designed to automatically assign a random color to a user's role in a Discord server. The bot is triggered by the '!auto_color' command and can be used by an administrator. The color is randomly generated each time the command is used. The bot uses the Discord API and requires a Discord token to function. The Discord token should be provided as an environment variable named 'DISCORD_TOKEN'.

Introduction to the Discord Auto Color Bot Template

Welcome to the Discord Auto Color Bot template! This bot is designed to enhance your Discord server by automatically assigning a random color to a user's role. It's a fun way to personalize the experience for your server members. The bot listens for the '!auto_color' command and, when triggered by an administrator, generates a new color for the specified user's role. This article will guide you through the steps to get this bot up and running on your server.

To begin using this template, simply click on "Start with this Template" on the Lazy platform. This will set up the template in your Lazy Builder interface.

Setting Environment Secrets

Before you can use the bot, you need to provide a Discord token which allows the bot to interact with your Discord server. This token acts as a key to perform actions on behalf of your bot within the Discord API.

  • Go to the Environment Secrets tab within the Lazy Builder.
  • Create a new secret with the key 'DISCORD_TOKEN'.
  • Enter your Discord bot token as the value for this secret.

Remember, this token is sensitive information and should not be shared with others.

External Integrations

To integrate this bot with your Discord server, you'll need to create a bot user and obtain a token from the Discord Developer Portal. Here are the steps to do that:

  • Go to the Discord Developer Portal (https://discord.com/developers/applications).
  • Click on the "New Application" button and give it a name.
  • Go to the "Bot" tab and click on "Add Bot".
  • Under the "TOKEN" section, click "Copy" to get your bot's token.
  • Under the "OAuth2" tab, select "bot" in the scopes section and assign the necessary permissions (at least 'Manage Roles' permission).
  • Use the generated OAuth2 URL to invite the bot to your server.

Once you have your token, follow the steps in the previous section to set it as an environment secret in the Lazy Builder.

Using the Test Button

After setting up your environment secret, you can use the Test button to deploy your app. The Lazy CLI will handle the deployment process, and you won't need to provide any additional input at this stage.

Interacting with the Bot

Once the bot is running on your server, you can use the '!auto_color' command to assign a random color to a user's role. Here's how to use the command:

Type '!auto_color' in any text channel where the bot has permissions to read and send messages. If you want to assign a color to another user, mention them after the command like this: '!auto_color @username'. Remember, only users with administrator permissions can use this command.

After executing the command, the bot will confirm the action by sending a message in the channel indicating the user's color has been successfully updated.

And that's it! You now have a fun and colorful addition to your Discord server. Enjoy your Discord Auto Color Bot!
