Building a discord bot using Python

This is going to be my first project and I feel like building a discord bot to track your favorite football (soccer) team and give like news and live scores etc …
Would appreciate any advice on how to approach this project (any project in general). Thanks!

@petrem Hello!

There are bunches of existing Discord bots that monitor news feeds and post updates to Discord. You can probably use any number of those as a basis. The bits you may need to work out here is where you’re getting updates from and how to do that.

Yeah for discord I’ll be using but I still haven’t found a free api to get soccer data. Might be another good project idea to try to create my own api I guess but I’ll think about it after I finish this one (hopefully).

Did you check the Sports API collection on github?

I didn’t know about it. The api seems promising. Thanks!
