Heroku Deployment


Remember to activate the app. View the logs here.
Use this to initially deploy your discord-twitter-bot.

To further configure the bot get Heroku CLI and run launcher.py.

heroku login
heroku git:clone -a <your heroku app name>
cd <your heroku app name>
git remote add origin https://github.com/NNTin/discord-twitter-bot
git pull origin master
python3 launcher.py
git add .
git commit -am "updated configuration"
git push heroku

Heroku is a nice solution to host the bot for free.

Normal Setup

Get Python >=3.5.3, <3.7

python3 -m venv bot-env
source bot-env/bin/activate
git clone https://github.com/NNTin/discord-twitter-bot.git
python3 discord-twitter-bot/launcher.py

First two lines are skip-able but are recommended if you are relying on an older version of discord.py. Third line clones the rewrite branch. Fourth line executes launcher.py

Once you have set everything up you can run main.py directly. (Useful in combination with systemd, Upstart, PM2, etc.)
