Nextcord

A modern, easy-to-use, feature-rich, and async-ready API wrapper for Discord written in Python.

Fork notice

This is a fork of discord.py, which unfortunately has been officially discontinued <https://gist.github.com/Rapptz/4a2f62751b9600a31a0d3c78100287f1/>_ on 28th August 2021. Nextcord will try to replace discord.py, with continued support and features, to still offer former discord.py users a stable API wrapper for their bots.

Key Features

  • Modern Pythonic API using async and await
  • Proper rate limit handling
  • Optimised in both speed and memory

Installing

Python 3.8 or higher is required

To install the library without full voice support, you can just run the following command:

.. code:: sh

# Linux/macOS
python3 -m pip install -U nextcord

# Windows
py -3 -m pip install -U nextcord

Otherwise to get voice support you should run the following command:

.. code:: sh

# Linux/macOS
python3 -m pip install -U "nextcord[voice]"

# Windows
py -3 -m pip install -U nextcord[voice]

To install additional packages for speedup, run the following command:

.. code:: sh

# Linux/macOS
python3 -m pip install -U "nextcord[speed]"

# Windows
py -3 -m pip install -U nextcord[speed]

To install the development version, do the following:

.. code:: sh

$ git clone https://github.com/nextcord/nextcord/
$ cd nextcord
$ python3 -m pip install -U .[voice]

Optional Packages


* `PyNaCl <https://pypi.org/project/PyNaCl/>`__ (for voice support)
* `aiodns <https://pypi.org/project/aiodns/>`__, `Brotli <https://pypi.org/project/Brotli/>`__, `cchardet <https://pypi.org/project/cchardet/>`__ (for aiohttp speedup)
* `orjson <https://pypi.org/project/orjson/>`__ (for json speedup)

Please note that on Linux installing voice you must install the following packages via your favourite package manager (e.g. ``apt``, ``dnf``, etc) before running the above commands:

* libffi-dev (or ``libffi-devel`` on some systems)
* python-dev (e.g. ``python3.6-dev`` for Python 3.6)


Quick Example
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

.. code:: py

    from nextcord.ext import commands


    bot = commands.Bot(command_prefix='$')

    @bot.command()
    async def ping(ctx):
        await ctx.reply('Pong!')

    bot.run('token')


You can find more examples in the examples directory.

**NOTE:** It is not advised to leave your token directly in your code, as it allows anyone with it to access your bot. If you intend to make your code public you should `store it securely <https://github.com/nextcord/nextcord/blob/master/examples/secure_token_storage.py/>`_.
