Discourse to Discord Webhook

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.


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


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.


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