API::Discord is designed to do all the hard work for you. Let us handle the connection, authentication, heartbeats, message parsing and all that other boring stuff - leaving you to focus on writing logic for your applications.


use API::Discord;
use API::Discord::Debug; # remove to disable debug output

sub MAIN($token) {
    my $discord = API::Discord.new(:$token);

    await $discord.ready;

    react {
        whenever $discord.messages -> $message {

Join our official Discord server where we discuss development, bugs and test changes or new features to our library. Please note that this is a volunteer project and we all have real lives, day jobs and other responsiblities outside of the Internet. Replies may not be immediate and a resolution of your problem is not guaranteed outside of valid bug reports (for which raising an issue here on GitHub is far preferable).



If you have a more general Raku question, or need help with a programming issue then it might be best to join the Raku Discord community instead. Some of the members there are also familiar with API::Discord and it's quite likely they'll be able to help you faster than we can. They're also really nice people. :)
