How to Create a 8 Ball Command for a JavaScript Discord Bot?

Estimated read time 2 min read

To create a 8 ball command for a JavaScript Discord bot, you can use the Math.random() function to generate a random number and return one of several predefined responses based on that number. Here is an example of how you can implement this:

const responses = [
  "It is certain.",
  "It is decidedly so.",
  "Without a doubt.",
  "Yes - definitely.",
  "You may rely on it.",
  "As I see it, yes.",
  "Most likely.",
  "Outlook good.",
  "Signs point to yes.",
  "Reply hazy, try again.",
  "Ask again later.",
  "Better not tell you now.",
  "Cannot predict now.",
  "Concentrate and ask again.",
  "Don't count on it.",
  "My reply is no.",
  "My sources say no.",
  "Outlook not so good.",
  "Very doubtful."

module.exports = {
  name: "8ball",
  description: "Get a magic 8 ball response.",
  execute(message, args) {
    if (!args.length) {
      return message.reply("Please provide a question.");

    const responseIndex = Math.floor(Math.random() * responses.length);
    const response = responses[responseIndex];`:8ball: ${response}`);

In this example, the responses array contains all of the possible responses that the 8 ball could give. The execute function is called when the 8 ball command is invoked, and it takes in the message and args parameters. If the args array is empty (i.e. the user didn’t provide a question), the function returns a message to the user asking them to provide a question. Otherwise, the function generates a random index using Math.random() and Math.floor(), and selects the corresponding response from the responses array. Finally, the function sends the response to the channel using
