How to Add MEE6 Bot to Discord Server?


Discord is a popular chat and voice application among gamers. The user interface of Discord is similar to a hybrid of Skype and Slack. Multiple interactive communication sessions between a user's browser and a server are possible using the WebSocket API(WebSockets API is a protocol for bi-directional, real-time communication between a client and a server).

The goal is to get the bot an authentication token to let Discord recognize and add your code to the bot's servers. Although it requires some work, it is not difficult. You must be familiar with JavaScript if you are new to coding. It will assist you in building a short bot that will welcome you to your server.
