I’ve been asked to write a plugin for Discourse to better integrate with a specific community’s systems. I’m trying to write a plugin that automatically changes a user’s avatar and username depending on specific information that the Discord OAuth2 system should provide (mainly, the users discord ID).
Mainly, I’m curious about how:
- You can have ruby listen to the “event” where a user joins the forum via Discord (the only allowed sign on method for the forum is Discord)
- How to get the information about the user’s discord id
- How to manually update the user’s avatar & name
I haven’t been able to find previous topics/documentation for this, but I may have just been looking in the wrong place. If so, please direct me to the correct topic/link.
Thanks in advance!
