This is an example bot that replies "pong" to messages that start with "ping". Checkout the [other examples](./examples/) for things like state management.

Discord Server

Ask questions, get updates, request features, etc in the project discord server: https://discord.gg/eaRAGgX3bK

Official Discord Documentation

This api closley matches the official discord documentation, which lists the rest requests, gateway events, and gateway sendables.

You can use the docs to check the name of something you want to do. For example: the docs list a Get Channel API path, which translates to discord-haskell's rest request ADT for GetChannel of type ChannelId -> ChannelRequest Channel.

Open an Issue

If something goes wrong: check the error message (optional: check [the debugging logs](./docs/debugging.md)), make sure you have the most recent version, ask on discord, or open a github issue.
