In this post, I will be teaching you how to write a guild command.

The guild command

Here's the code As usual, here's the code (put it in ./commands/guild.js):

const { Command } = require('yuuko');
const moment = require('moment');
module.exports = new Command(['guild', 'server'], (message) => {
    const guild = message.channel.guild;
    const owner = guild.members.get(guild.ownerID);
    message.channel.createMessage({
        embed: {
            title: 'Guild Information',
            description: `Guild information for ${guild.name} (id: \`${guild.id}\`)`,
            color: 11272041,
            thumbnail: {
                url: guild.iconURL,
            },
            fields: [
                {
                    name: 'Owner:',
                    value: `${owner.username}#${owner.discriminator} (id: \`${guild.ownerID}\`)`,
                    inline: false,
                },
                {
                    name: 'Created at:',
                    value: `${moment.utc(guild.createdAt).format('MMMM, Do YYYY, h:mm:ss a')}`,
                    inline: false,
                },
                {
                    name: 'Member count:',
                    value: `${guild.memberCount} members`,
                    inline: false,
                },
            ],
        },
    });
});
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Again, this is quite simple. This is mostly properties of the guild object. More can be found here. I will not be covering this in detail, as I will also be covering a roll command, which is more complex.

The roll command

As usual, here's the code (put it in ./commands/roll.js):

const { Command } = require('yuuko');
require('dotenv').config();
module.exports = new Command(['roll', 'rolladie', 'rolladice'], (message, args) => {
    const arg = args.join(' ');
    if(!args.length) {
        message.channel.createMessage({
            embed: {
                title: `${message.author.username} rolled a die!`,
                description: `${message.author.mention} rolled a die and got **${Math.floor(Math.random() * 6) + 1}**!`,
                color: 12252021,
                fields: [
                ],
            },
        });
    }
    else {
        try {
            const num = arg.trim().split('d');
            const times = parseInt(num[0]);
            const max = parseInt(num[1]) || 6;
            const nums = [];
            for(let i = 0; i < times; i++) {
                let result = Math.floor(Math.random() * max); // eslint-disable-line prefer-const
                result = result + 1;
                nums.push(result);
            }
            message.channel.createMessage({
                embed: {
                    title: `${message.author.username} rolled a ${times} dice!`,
                    description: `${message.author.mention} rolled a ${times} dice and got [ **${nums.join(' ')}** ]!`,
                    color: 12252021,
                },
            });
        }
        catch(err) {
            console.warn(err);
            message.channel.createMessage(`${message.author.mention}, the correct usage would be \`${process.env.PREFIX} roll <number of dice to roll>d<highest number on the die>\``);
        }
    }
});
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Now, let me explain.
A user is supposed to type the command in the followoing format, assuming the prefix is !:

!roll
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
!roll 10d6
# or !roll 10 d 6
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

btw there are few aliases for this command:

['roll', 'rolladie', 'rolladice']
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

We check for arguments, and if there are none, we roll a random number from 1 to 6 and send it in an embed:

if(!args.length) {
        message.channel.createMessage({
            embed: {
                title: `${message.author.username} rolled a die!`,
                description: `${message.author.mention} rolled a die and got **${Math.floor(Math.random() * 6) + 1}**!`,
                color: 12252021,
                fields: [
                ],
            },
        });
    }
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

And if there are arguments, we join the arguments:

const arg = args.join(' ');
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

and split it by d.
We first initialize an empty array[], use the for loop to roll a random number between the number the user specified (if not, the default is 6) and push the result to the array the number of times the user specified.

After that has been completed, we join the array with spaces and send it in an embed:

else {
        try {
            const num = arg.trim().split('d');
            const times = parseInt(num[0]);
            const max = parseInt(num[1]) || 6;
            const nums = [];
            for(let i = 0; i < times; i++) {
                let result = Math.floor(Math.random() * max); // eslint-disable-line prefer-const
                result = result + 1;
                nums.push(result);
            }
            message.channel.createMessage({
                embed: {
                    title: `${message.author.username} rolled a ${times} dice!`,
                    description: `${message.author.mention} rolled a ${times} dice and got [ **${nums.join(' ')}** ]!`,
                    color: 12252021,
                },
            });
        }
        catch(err) {
            console.warn(err);
            message.channel.createMessage(`${message.author.mention}, the correct usage would be \`${process.env.PREFIX} roll <number of dice to roll>d<highest number on the die>\``);
        }
    }
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

EZPZ.
PS tell me in the comments if you have any trouble.

Conclusion

Woohoo! We made a fun command today, and also accessed the guild object. That's about the end of it for today.
Take care and goodbye!
