The ultimate goal of IGSQbot™ is to become the only bot that a community could need. It will become a fully fledged multi-purpose bot.
The bot is currently being programmed by founding member of IGSQ™ Pim#9704 in Python 3. It uses open-source packages such as discord.py to have the bot function in the Discord server. The bot is also connected to a database that is hosted using GCP, Google Cloud Platform. This ensures that any user data is securely stored using Google’s state of the art encryption.
*Work in progress
IGSQbot™ was created on July 5th 2019. The release of version 1.0 is planned on the first anniversary of the bot, July 5th 2020!
“Currently, no. The bot is completely proprietary and is exclusive to The Intergalactic Squirrels™ community. However, it has been brought to my attention by several people that it might be worth it to allow others to use the bot as well. I am currently considering whether I will or not.
It is quiet a big undertaking to completely rewrite the bot to be usable on multiple servers, but it’s certainly not impossible. It definitely will not happen before v1.0. After that though, we’ll see. If I decide to publicize the bot, it will be announced!” – Pim
