Question

Discord Bot + GitHub + Digital Ocean

So I currently have a Discord Bot (JAVASCRIPT) running in my private GitHub repository. I’m trying to find a way I can use my droplet to run that GitHub repository 24/7 so my Discord Bot is running 24/7.

The reason I want to use the GitHub repository is that I want to continuously update the bot through GitHub as well.

Please, if you know anyway, that will help me so much. Thank you

Hello @Traid,

I could suggest starting with this tutorial here on how to build a Discord Bot with Node.js:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-build-a-discord-bot-with-node-js

Then to make your application run 24/7 you can follow the steps here on how to use PM2 to set up a Node.js Production Environment On An Ubuntu VPS:

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
