Discourse to Discord Webhook

:discourse: :information_source: Before trying this, check out the official chat integration plugin for Discord

Discourse to Discord Webhook

This PHP script acts an intermediary between Discourse and Discord, receiving webhooks from Discourse and parsing them into an optimal format before relaying them to Discord.

Demo

See it in action and test it out for yourself on Crit Cola’s Discourse and Discord.

Installation

Just clone it!

git clone https://github.com/critcola/discourse-to-discord-webhook.git

This has been tested with and is supported on PHP 7.1, but should work fine on older versions of PHP.

Configuration

Copy config-template.php to config.php and populate all non-optional variables after configuring webhooks in both Discourse and Discord.

License

The Discourse to Discord Webhook script is released under the MIT License.
