Description

D++ is a lightweight and efficient library for Discord written in modern C++, covering as much of the API specification as possible with an incredibly small memory footprint even when caching large amounts of data.

It is created by the developer of TriviaBot and contributed to by a dedicated team of developers.

Library features

Support for Discord API v10 Really small memory footprint Efficient caching system for guilds, channels, guild members, roles, users Sharding and clustering (Many shards, one process: specify the number of shards, or let the library decide) Highly optimised ETF (Erlang Term Format) support for very fast websocket throughput (no other C++ Discord library has this!) Slash Commands/Interactions support Voice support (sending and receiving audio) The entire Discord API is available for use in the library Stable Windows support Ready-made compiled packages for Windows, Raspberry Pi (ARM64/ARM7/ARMv6), Debian x86/x64 and RPM based distributions Highly scalable for large amounts of guilds and users

Example

This is a simple ping-pong example using slash commands.

#include <dpp/dpp.h>
#include <cstdlib>

int main() {
    dpp::cluster bot(std::getenv("BOT_TOKEN"));

    bot.on_slashcommand([](auto event) {
         if (event.command.get_command_name() == "ping") {
             event.reply("Pong!");
         }
    });

    bot.on_ready([&bot](auto event) {
        if (dpp::run_once<struct register_bot_commands>()) {
            bot.global_command_create(
                dpp::slashcommand("ping", "Ping pong!", bot.me.id)
            );
        }
    });

    bot.start(dpp::st_wait);
}

Supported Systems

Linux

The library runs ideally on Linux.

Mac OS X and FreeBSD

The library is well-functional and stable on Mac OS X and FreeBSD too. For running your bot on a Raspberry Pi, we offer a prebuilt .deb package for ARM64, ARM6, and ARM7 so that you do not have to wait for it to compile.

Windows

Windows is well-supported with ready-made compiled DLL and LIB files, please check out our Windows Bot Template repository. The Windows Bot repository can be cloned and integrated immediately into any Visual Studio 2019 and 2022 project in a matter of minutes.

Other OS

The library should work fine on other operating systems as well, and if you run a D++ bot on something not listed here, please let us know!

🤝 Contributing

Contributions, issues and feature requests are welcome. After cloning and setting up project locally, you can just submit a PR to this repo and it will be deployed once it's accepted.

Please read the D++ Code Style Guide for more information on how we format pull requests.
