SwagLyrics x Discord: Write a Discord Bot!


SwagLyrics is an application that fetches the currently playing song from Spotify on Windows, Linux and macOS to displays the lyrics in the command-line or in a browser tab (using Flask). Refreshes automatically when song changes and uses lyrics fetched from Genius. The backend extends functionality and makes rapid iteration and issue management possible by automating away a lot of operations.

The task

Discord seems like a promising platform and we want to tap in on that and have some fun. To get started, we want to make a bot that posts in a channel every time a SwagLyrics repo is starred. We might have future tasks to expand this!

You can integrate your bot into the current backend since that is configured to receive starring info from GitHub already.

We made a server you can use for testing -
