Getting Started with WidgetBot
To get started with WidgetBot, first you must invite the bot to your server.
If you need any assistance adding WidgetBot, please ask in the server. However, please make sure you mention what the issue is, send your code in a codeblock (
```), include your server id and cluster, and optionally include a link to your site.
Adding the Bot¶
Choose a WidgetBot instance, and click the name to add the bot.
These are operated by the WidgetBot team, and you can apply patron perks on these.
These are operated by third-parties and WidgetBot patron perks may not apply.
You can also host WidgetBot yourself.
WidgetBot will not work if you don't add the bot to your server!
The instances are mostly identical, however there are some small differences: cl2 and DisWeb render mentions, but cl3 doesn't. cl3 renders animated emojis, but cl2 and DisWeb don't. Also, cl2 will not work on a server with the 2FA Requirement on.
After you add one of the bots to your server, you need to pick a format to use in your website.
You can choose between Crate and one of our inline formats.
- Crate (recommended): Shows a little chat button in the corner of your website. It shows message notifications and provides an API. Info, Tutorial, Documentation
These let you put a chat box in your site you can change the size, etc.
- react-embed: Provides access to the embed as a React component, and lets you use the embed-api. Documentation
Choose one of the formats to continue the tutorial and learn about adding the embed to your website.
