I’ve been looking for a way to create a custom bot that users can interact with in public topics. They would be able to type something like
@botname command arg1 arg2
and the bot would reply in the topic with the requested output.
It looks like it isn’t possible to do that with discobot, so I was going to write a webhook receiver in an external cloud function to listen for mentions of the custom bot’s name. The bot would then post a reply via the API.
Has anyone done something similar to that already in a plugin? Or is there a better way to implement that kind of feature?
I thought I would ask here, because sometimes I ask a question and it turns out that there is already an existing solution.
