Quickstart (core)#

This page contains information to quickly getting started with the core.

The first thing you need is the library installed, see Installation.

Framework control#

Only one function is needed to be called for the framework to start.

The framework can be started using daf.core.run() function (and stopped with the daf.core.shutdown() function).

Function run() accepts many parameters but there is only one that is most important:

accounts:

Accounts parameter is a list of daf.client.ACCOUNT objects which represent different Discord accounts you can simultaneously use to shill your content.

The below example shows a minimum definition of the accounts list. For information about parameters with specific object, please use the search bar or refer to the API reference.

To login with username and password instead of the account token, see Automatic login

The below example shows a bare minimum definition of the accounts list that has a manually defined server list.

There is also a way to automatically define the server list (and channels) based on the guild name (Shilling scheme generation).

Listing 6 Example#
import daf

accounts = [
    daf.client.ACCOUNT( # Account 1
        token="DJHADJHSKJDHAKHDSKJADHKASJ", # Account token
        is_user=False,  # Is the token from an user account?
        servers=[   # List of guilds/users
            daf.guild.GUILD(
                snowflake=123456789, # Snowflake id of discord
                messages=[
                    daf.message.TextMESSAGE(...),
                    daf.message.TextMESSAGE(...),
                    daf.message.VoiceMESSAGE(...)
                ],
                logging=True, # Log sent messages
                remove_after=None # To automatically stop shilling
            )
        ]
    ),

    daf.client.ACCOUNT( # Account 2
        token="JKDJSKDJALKNDSAKNDASKNDKAJS", # Account token
        is_user=False,  # Is the token from an user account?
        servers=[   # List of guilds/users
            daf.guild.GUILD(
                snowflake=123456789, # Snowflake id of discord
                messages=[
                    daf.message.TextMESSAGE(...),
                    daf.message.TextMESSAGE(...),
                    daf.message.VoiceMESSAGE(...)
                ],
                logging=True, # Log sent messages
                remove_after=None # To automatically stop shilling
            )
        ]
    )
]


daf.run(accounts=accounts)

Note

DAF also supports the accounts list to be saved to file or restored from file on startup.

This behaviour can be enabled by setting the save_to_file parameter to True. Please note that when this is set to True, the framework will first load the accounts from file and then also load accounts present in the accounts parameter, which will result in Account already added warnings if the same account has been backed up to file before.

After you’ve successfully defined your accounts list and started the framework with run(), the framework will run on it’s own and there is nothing you need to do from this point forward if basic periodic shilling with text messages is all you desire.
