2019

A discord bot, designed to be simple to understand and easy to extend.

It's based around plugins that add commands to the bot.Plugins can be added to and removed from the bot at run-time and it's pretty fault tolerant so a bad plugin won't take the whole bot down. This is to make adding new plugins easy and fast.
