About this template

This app tracks the growth of a Discord server and posts updates to Twitter. This app creates a tweet to your twitter account every time another hundred users join your discord server. Make sure you have twitter access tokens created with Read, Write, and Direct Messages permissions to run this app.

Introduction to the Twitter Announcement Discord Bot Template

Welcome to the Twitter Announcement Discord Bot template! This template is designed to help you create a bot that automatically posts updates to Twitter whenever your Discord server reaches a new milestone in member count. Specifically, it will tweet every time another hundred users join your server. This is a fantastic way to engage your community and celebrate growth milestones together.

Getting Started with the Template

To begin using this template, simply click on "Start with this Template" on the Lazy platform. This will pre-populate the code in the Lazy Builder interface, so you won't need to copy, paste, or delete any code manually.

Initial Setup: Adding Environment Secrets

Before you can test and use the bot, you'll need to set up some environment secrets within the Lazy Builder. These secrets include your Discord token and Twitter API credentials. Here's how to acquire and set them up:

  • Go to the Discord Developer Portal and create a new application to get your DISCORD_TOKEN.
  • Head over to the Twitter Developer Portal, create an app, and generate your Twitter API keys and access tokens. You will need TWITTER_API_KEY, TWITTER_API_SECRET, TWITTER_ACCESS_TOKEN, and TWITTER_ACCESS_TOKEN_SECRET.
  • In the Lazy Builder, navigate to the Environment Secrets tab and add the above credentials as secrets.

Make sure your Twitter access tokens are created with Read, Write, and Direct Messages permissions.

Test: Pressing the Test Button

Once you have set up your environment secrets, press the "Test" button to begin the deployment of the app. The Lazy CLI will handle the deployment process, and you won't need to install any libraries or set up your environment.

Using the App

After pressing the "Test" button and the app is deployed, the bot will be live and running on your Discord server. It will monitor the server's member count and automatically post a tweet every time the member count reaches a new hundred-member milestone.

Integrating the App

If you wish to integrate this bot with other services or frontends, you can refer to the provided sample code for API request handlers in the template. For example, if you want to create a custom dashboard that displays the status of your Discord server and the bot's activity, you can use the provided and as a starting point.

For API interactions, after deployment, Lazy will provide you with a dedicated server link to use the API. If you're using FastAPI, you will also receive a docs link to help you understand and interact with the API endpoints.

Here's a sample request and response for the provided API handlers:

# Sample GET request
GET /api/status

# Sample response
  "message": "OK"

# Sample POST request with JSON body
POST /api/data
Content-Type: application/json

  "field": "example"

# Sample response
  "message": "Received data: example"

Remember, the Lazy platform handles all the deployment details, so you can focus on building and integrating your application. Enjoy creating your Twitter Announcement Discord Bot and celebrating your community's growth!

Discord Moderation Bot

The Discord bot monitors all messages in the server. If a message contains profanity, the bot deletes it and sends a warning to the channel. The bot also notifies the host about the deletion via a direct message. Additionally, the bot outputs a helpful error message to a channel if there is a permissions error, guiding the server admin to enable the required permission in the Discord Developer portal.
