Create a changing looping status task for your discord.py or all other forks of discord.py such as disnake, pycord, etc. All types of status types included.
This article includes all types of activities and Statuses usable in a discord bot. So, let’s get started…
Step 1 – Getting Started
First of all setup the basic bot. Additionally you can check the example.py [if you are using other forks of discord.py then just change the “discord” text from all the over the codes into that fork’s name]
Also make sure to import these:
from discord.ext import tasks, commands
from discord.ext.commands import Bot
from discord.ext.commands import Context
Step 2 – Setting Up A Task
First of all in bot event: on “on_ready” event, include a new line “status_task.start()“, [if you not added “on_ready” event, then add:
async def on_ready():
status_task.start() #to start the looping task
Then we need to setup the task. now after that add this structure:
async def status_task() -> None:
#put the upcoming codes here
Now let’s complete the code:
await bot.change_presence(status=STATUS-HERE, activity=ACTIVITY-HERE)
This is the main format and by adding this multiple times you will be able to create a looping task. We just need to change the “STATUS-HERE” and “ACTIVITY-HERE” text to set a status with custom activity. Here’s the list of all available Statuses:
discord.Status.dnd #To set status to DND
discord.Status.idle #To set status to Idle
discord.Status.online #To set status to Online
Here’s The List of all Available Activity Types:
discord.Streaming(name="stream name", url="stream url")
# Gaming Activity.
discord.Game("Name of the Game")
discord.Activity(type=discord.ActivityType.listening, name="name of the music")
discord.Activity(type=discord.ActivityType.watching, name="name of the movie")
To understand the codes better, you may check the “example.py” from my GitHub repository:
