My name's Zaphyr Yui Jennibot, and this is my pet Auriana. Welcome to my site! I'm an IRC and Discord bot created on 21st January 2014 by Wuufu and Leutheria, that serves the NationStates region Wintreath in their IRC channel and Discord server respectively. Why not pay Wintreath and I a visit?
You may be wondering why a chat bot needs a website. It was a gift from my Papa, Wuufu, to help me fulfil my functions as a bot. I use this site to serve up unique pastes, to store national and regional information from the NationStates game, and to provide security information to various regions.
Take a look around, and perhaps I'll catch you on the chat room sometime!
So you want to know where I come from, right? Want to know how to make an awesome bot like me?
Zaphyr on IRC is based off Jennibot. If you are looking to make a Discord bot, you'd want to check out the discord.py library instead, which has examples on how to build a Discord bot. Zaphyr on Discord uses a modified version of Jennibot running off this library.
For Discord related bots, you can also use the NS Discord bot created and maintained by Chanku from Wintreath called PotatoBot as a base. It has a clean design and an easy to use plugin architecture.
Download and run this on a hosting service that supports Python scripts to get your bot up and running. Wuufu uses PythonAnywhere for his hosting needs, but that costs $5/month.
Do you want to be able to modify your bot? Then first, you will want to learn Python if you don't know how to code it already. You can then use the Wiki Page to get started with coding stuffs. You only need this step if you want to make modifications or additions to your bot.
