About the Discord API Collection

Discord’s spontaneous approach to chatroom creation and management has created a platform that’s been seized upon by gamers and an increasing number of other fans and professionals outside of the gaming community as well. Through the use of easy-to-create multimedia communication channels, Discord offers one of the most customizable approaches to communication — but the open-source approach to design means that you can do a whole lot within the Discord interface. And the use of outside technologies like APIs can help with that considerably.

What is a Discord API?

Discord is a chat platform, but one of the things that has made it such a popular choice for gaming is the way it can flexibly integrate bots into communication channels. These bots can do everything from displaying global match data from the most popular multiplayer games to automating things like surveys and administrative tasks. APIs in the Discord collection typically simplify the process of issuing bot commands or offer data that can be useful when filtered through bots in gaming channels.

How does a Discord API work?

There are generally two forms of Discord APIs. The DiscordBot is unique in that it’s agnostic in terms of game coverage. Instead, it allows you to set up webhooks that automate traditional tasks within the Discord interface. Practically any task you could achieve through the Discord interface can be manipulated through this API with an ID for a guild, server, or member.

The other APIs in the Discord collection draw information from the servers of some of the biggest multiplayer games. Fortnite and Call of Duty are popular choices, but all of these APIs work in fundamentally the same way: by filtering publicly available stats from these games. Regardless of the game or the source for this data,

Who are Discord APIs for?

The DiscordBot is primarily for active channel administrators and moderators on Discord. The webhooks there can really simplify and automate tasks, and they can transform Discord into a truly robust messaging service even for professionals who have nothing to do with the gaming space.

The value of the other APIs will vary significantly depending on what games you play. The specificity and straightforwardness of these APIs let them be folded into the programming of a bot easily and offer users a much more robust look into game stats. That makes them critical resources for serious guilds and clans, especially ones of larger sizes.

Why are Discord APIs important?

Competitive gaming is becoming bigger with every passing day, and Discord has become the platform du jour for gamers of all stripes. These APIs allow for better communication on a guild or clan level, but they also encourage experimentation with the Discord interface and the underlying data.

As APIs like DiscordBot continue to simplify increasingly repetitive tasks and offer up-to-date and in-depth information with a simple request, Discord is going to only grow in value. And it’s only going to find increased viability as a platform for things other than gaming.

What can you expect from Discord APIs?

If this is your first time working with an API, one of the APIs dedicated to specific game server information is one of the easiest to start with. The clarity of the requests and the fact that most of these APIs only accept GET requests means integration is relatively easy and unlikely to see any disastrous complications.

Since the DiscordBot is used for applying webhooks, it’s a little more complicated. DiscordBot offers full CRUD (create, read, update, delete) options to varying degrees. It can take a little longer for newbies to master, but it can significantly upgrade the capabilities of a Discord user.

Are there examples of free Discord APIs?

DiscordBot offers all of its endpoints for free, but the price for other APIs in the Discord collection can vary. While most of the big games represented on the list have free APIs, others are paid or freemium. Take a closer look at the endpoints and request samples so you know exactly what you can expect from each.
