i began work on jiqi back in march 2022 with the goal of making an all-purpose bot, meaning it would be able to
- add and remove roles via reactions
- auto-mod a server
- protect a server from raids / spam
- and basically all the other things all the other bots can do
essentially, the plan was to make just one bot which i could use for my discord server which would get rid of the need for any other bots.
since then, the goal has somewhat shifted; now ive become set on making a bot which can connect many servers, creating a sort of intranet, all connected via jiqi.
the coolest feature of jiqi so far is the 'jiqi hub', a channel which is automatically added to any server which adds jiqi to it, allowing communication across many servers
im still actively working on jiqi, but because of hosting issues (basically i dont have a way to reliably host it 24/7 wihtout just leaving my macbook running all the time) it is not online too often. also, the dream of having jiqi do all the things mentioned above isnt dead yet
, itll obviously just take a bit of time. in fact, reaction roles do work
, but its limited to my server at the moment.
at present time, my main focus is getting what i already have rewritten with hikari + lightbulb, as ive been using discordpy which has been discontinued.
it requests admin perms because i dont know exactly which permissions its gonna need yet
if you have any questions about jiqi, you can join my discord server and spam ping me if you want
