At the very moment, I am trying to implement my very own bot onto my Discord server and not having to rely on other bots. I want to figure out how to code a bot that has a leveling system, but I don’t know how to get the database to work with glitch and I looked up some tutorials, but I am afraid that some databases aren’t safe.
I would recommend using mongoose for mongodb
I just signed up for mongoDB, but how would I implement the mongodb to glitch? Or the mongoose… Sorry I am very new! Also are there an tutorials on the “leveling system” I can take a look at.
This video shows the basics of integrating a discord bot with mongo
I would recommend using SQLite but currently I use JSON as a database.
Never use JSON as a database though. It’s a bad practice.
I aim to change that with Jsoning.
JSON is good for basic configuration but not for large scale purposes unless you’ve implemented a way to seek through the file instead of loading it entirely into memory. Maybe we should just configure our ides to refuse to save an incorrectly formatted json file.
Is it possible to run a database with glitch? I followed an Enmap tutorial and it didn’t work and I am now aiming to attempt one but with MongoDB. It would be nice to get some assistance Thank you all for the wonderful responses so far!
Sort of, you can run a database, and then use make a socket.io to socket proxy on that server. On the server you want to access the database you make a socket to socket.io proxy. Considering their interfaces are almost indentical this should be easy. Unfortunatly this sacrfices lots of speed, but glitch’s reverse proxy doesn’t understand non-http(s) requests
