Hacktoberfest with Robo.js: Build Bots or Plugins & Win Stuff!

Hacktoberfest with Robo.js: Build Bots or Plugins & Win Stuff!
OwO kitty sees all!

October is here, and with it comes Hacktoberfest! WavePlay is thrilled to be part of this tradition, inviting you to play around with Robo.js, our slick Node.js (& Bun) framework for spinning up powerful bots—aka Robos! 🚀

Need a jumpstart? Check out our to-do tutorial and join our Discord Community for any questions or brainstorming sessions!

With Robo.js, creating commands is remarkably simple, often just requiring a single line of code. Expanding your bot’s functionality with a range of plugins is also straightforward using the robo add <plugin> command. TypeScript is fully supported, and starting your project only needs npx create-robo <name>, followed by robo dev to launch it!

Being a file-based framework means this is all you need to create a slash command
