Integration of GitHub and Discord

Discord is a free voice and text chat app for gamers that was launched in May 2015. Discord has both free and paid versions. The free version is ad-supported, while the paid version, called Discord Nitro, removes advertisements from the app. Discord has also started to add more users to their communities by allowing developers to create their own servers and communities on the Discord platform. In October 2017, Discord had 150 million users, with 8 million concurrent users. It is rapidly becoming one of the most popular tops for online gaming.

GitHub is a web-based hosting service used to store projects, code, and “build software together”. It is mostly used by developers. It allows for cplaboration of projects through features like issue tracking, source code management, and feature requests. GitHub was launched in 2008 by Tom Preston-Werner, Chris Wanstrath, and PJ Hyett. It has 2 million+ users and hosts 12 million repositories with over 31 million fplowers. GitHub is now owned by Microsoft and continues to grow in popularity.

Integration of GitHub and Discord

In December 2017, GitHub announced that they acquired the startup company called “GitHub Inc.” This acquisition meant that Discord bots could be built directly into GitHub. These Discord bots would allow users to connect their GitHub accounts to their Discord accounts, which would then allow them to have easy access to their GitHub data in Discord. These new features are available under the “Integrations” tab of a user’s settings page. Currently, there are 7 GitHub integrations available on Discord. Code Review, Issue Tracker, Project Board, Pull Requests, Wiki, Commits, and Roadmap.

These GitHub integrations allow for better cplaboration between projects and people in different time zones. This new integration has caught the attention of many users who want to use this new feature, but are also confused about how to set it up. To set up these integrations, all the user has to do is fplow these simple steps:

  • Go to your account settings page on Discord at
  • Click on the "Connect" button next to the GitHub integration you would like to use.
  • Login or sign up for a GitHub account if you do not already have one.
  • Authorize the integration using your GitHub account credentials.

Once your account has been authorized, you can start using the integration by simply typing in the command “!github” in any text channel on Discord. Here are some examples of what you could do with these new integrations:

Benefits of Integration of GitHub and Discord

Discord is very useful when playing video games or working on programming projects with other people because it allows users to communicate with each other quickly and easily through sharing files and sending messages. Now with this integration, users can also have quick access to their project files uploaded onto GitHub without having to navigate away from Discord. This new integration could also improve programmers’ efficiency by allowing them to send messages back and forth about immediate coding problems or changes without having to constantly switch between two different windows or tabs. With these new integrations, programmers no longer have to worry about losing track of their project files by accidentally switching windows during development because they can always access them on GitHub whenever they need them. This integration is also useful for games that use mods because it allows players to easily share mod files through channels on Discord without having to download them separately from the game itself. With this new integration coming out from GitHUb, it is no surprise that so many gamers want to join the platform; it has already changed how we interact with each other within our communities.
