What is Discord API and where to find it?

Discord API is a part of the Discord server that receives requests and sends responses. It contains all the functions of the application, allowing you to add Discord authorization to your website or connect an assistant bot to your server. For detailed information about Discord API, you can refer to the Discord Developer Portal. The only downside is that all documentation and instructions are in English. To use Discord API for bot development, you need to obtain a token consisting of letters and numbers. The token acts as a "key" to control the bot, sending API requests and receiving responses. Now, let's find out how to get it.

How to connect Discord API?

Generating a token is quite simple, follow the step-by-step instructions:

  1. Go to the Discord Developer Portal page and sign in to your account.
  2. Select the "Applications" section and click "New Application".
  3. Choose a name for your bot. As an example, we named the bot "New Discord Bot".
  4. In the left panel of the developer portal, select the "Bot" tab with a puzzle piece icon.
  5. In the opened section, click "Add Bot". A confirmation window will appear, click "Yes, do it!".
  6. A green rectangle with the text "A wild bot has appeared!" will indicate that you've done everything correctly. The token will appear on the page, you can view it by clicking "Click to Reveal Token", and copy it by clicking "Copy". The token is ready, and you have successfully connected the bot to Discord API. Now, you can proceed with bot development by searching for "create discord bot tutorial" to find numerous guides, mainly in English.
