hata

Hata is an async Discord API wrapper written in Python named after Hata no Kokoro.

Why hata

  • Multiple simultaneous clients

    Hata can run multiple clients from the same instance without sacrificing performance, all while being easy to code.

  • Performant

    Fast concurrent code using async/await syntax, cache control, PyPy support and more!

  • Newest API features

    Whatever Discord decides to release/update/break Hata will support it natively in no time!

  • 100% Python

    Completely relies on Python! Easy to read, easy to understand, easy to code.

Why not hata

  • Small community

    Hata has a small and slowly increasing community. The chance of getting help outside of our cosy discord server equals to zero.

Usage

The following example answers on ping message.

from hata import Client


Nue = Client('TOKEN')


@Nue.events
async def ready(client):
print(f'{client:f} logged in.')


@Nue.events
async def message_create(client, message):
if message.author.is_bot:
return


if message.content == 'ping':
await client.message_create(message.channel, 'pong')


Nue.start()

An improved example using the commands extension to handle common use cases.

from hata import Client


Saki = Client('TOKEN', extensions='commands', prefix='s!')


@Saki.events
async def ready(client):
print(f'{client:f} logged in.')


@Saki.commands
async def ping(client, message):
return 'pong'


Saki.start()

Or use slash commands!

from hata import Client, Guild


GUILD = Guild.precreate(guild_id)


Seija = Client('TOKEN', extensions='slash')


@Seija.events
async def ready(client):
print(f'{client:f} logged in.')


@Seija.interactions(guild=GUILD)
async def ping():
"""ping-pong"""
return 'pong'


Seija.start()

Note: You need to restart your client, or the slash command wont show up. If there are more than 50 integrations (bots) in a guild, some of the (integrations) bots wont be able to use slash commands. This is currently a Discord limitation.

If you wonder, how to run up more clients, just put the two code snippet into the same file.

Hata leaves the main thread free, client.start() blocks it only till the client logs in (or fails it), although you can still use the start_clients function, what as it says, starts up all the non-running clients parallelly, so go ahead and start python with -i option, then interact with the clients from your interactive console in runtime.

We got some tutorials on github as well, please check them too!
