Introducing our new website!

Hello all, If you are reading this, you are most likely on our new website.

It has been a pretty big migration from Jekyll to Docusaurus, but it is complete.

The reason we decided to make this change is that Jekyll was not the easiest to maintain. In some cases, the website broke for weeks of time due to a Minima update we didn't know about.

In addition, the new website has a lot of improved features, including a dark theme, better design, and our dependencies can now properly be pinned - no more rouge updates!

If you find any issues with the new site, please don't hesitate to send us a +report, we will get on it as soon as we can!

Thank you all 😊

The Future

Hello all, I understand everybody's concerns, and yes, we are coming back.

I'm sorry we haven't posted for 5 months, and here is why: Demotivation.

But do not worry! It ends here, and I will now tell you what is going to happen in the next month.

Major Revamps

Hello all, Once again, we are very sorry for the lack of updates. It should get better now.

A quick update to +info has arrived! This update adds several fields to the output of running the command, including:

  • Icon is animated (value is either true or false)
  • Server creation time (time in UTC that the server was created)
  • If the server has more than 250 members (value is either true or false)

Happy Discording!

New Command and Features are Here

We're delighted to announce the new +define command, as well as some insights into current and future development.

New Command

+define allows you to define a word from the dictionary easily. It is pretty simple to use, and because of that, we believe it is easier then opening a book or visiting any website.

Performance Enhancements

Since our last post, we have mainly been working to improve performance, including response times, for the bot. We understand that it is annoying, and it has improved, and will continue to in the coming days!

Updates to Source Code

We also did a lot of renaming/simplifying/modernizing of code, to make it easier for all of us. We are pretty sure this didn't break anything, but if it did, please help us out by filing a report.

Welcoming a New Sponsor!

We would like to thank CloudRepo for sponsoring us. Thanks to them, we no longer have to deal with managing dependencies on PyPI, making our codebase more healthy and easier to manage overall.

Conclusion

Thank you everyone for your continued support of Cakebot 😸
