I am trying to build a Discord bot; which tells you about the weather condition. But no matter what I did I was unable to execute even the simplest commands such as:
import discord from discord.ext import commands bot = commands.Bot(command_prefix="!") @bot.command() async def test(ctx, arg): await ctx.send(arg) client = discord.Client() client.run(token)
I just do not get it on Discord side I enter the command “!test hello” to the chat screen and nothing happens. Please help thanks !
The problem is, that you first define a bot using
bot = commands.Bot(command_prefix="!") then add the command to the bot, but then create a new client using
client = discord.Client() and then run the client.
The problem here is that, you never run the bot, which has the command, so instead of
client = discord.Client() client.run(token)
