Installing

Python 3.5.3 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 discord.py

Windows

py -3 -m pip install -U discord.py

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

.. code:: sh

# Linux/macOS
python3 -m pip install -U "discord.py[voice]"

Windows

py -3 -m pip install -U discord.py[voice]

To install the development version, do the following:

.. code:: sh

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

Optional Packages ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  • PyNaCl (for voice support)

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

import discord

class MyClient(discord.Client): async def on_ready(self): print('Logged on as', self.user)

async def on_message(self, message):
    # don't respond to ourselves
    if message.author == self.user:
        return

    if message.content == 'ping':
        await message.channel.send('pong')

client = MyClient() client.run('token')

Bot Example ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

.. code:: py

import discord
from discord.ext import commands

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

@bot.command() async def ping(ctx): await ctx.send('pong')
