C++ Discord API Bot Library
Replace the number after
-j with a number suitable for your setup, usually the same as the number of cores on your machine.
cmake will fetch any dependencies that are required for you and ensure they are compiled alongside the library.
If you want to install the library, its dependencies, and header files to a different directory, specify this directory when running
Then once the build is complete, run
make install to install to the location you specified.
Once installed to the
/usr/local directory, you can make use of the library in standalone programs simply by including it and linking to it:
The important flags in this command-line are:
-std=c++17- Required to compile the headers
-ldpp- Link to libdpp.so
mydppbot.cpp- Your source code
dppbot- The name of the executable to make
g++command is not advised in any real project, and the example above should be used only as a test. From here, you should learn to create a bot in D++ by moving on to Building a Discord Bot Using CMake (UNIX) or if you have not yet created a token for your bot, Creating a Bot Token - If you are having trouble setting up CMake, you can try our template cmake bot project.
