Question

[NSFW] I make discord bots. I am having issues with my NSFW commands working.

the code:

class Util {
  static async scrapeSubreddit(subreddit) {
    subreddit = typeof subreddit === 'string' && subreddit.length !== 0 ? subreddit : "puppies";
    return snekfetch.get(`https:\/\/imgur\/r\/${subreddit}\/hot.json`)
      .then(res => {
        if(!res.body.data) return;
        const img = res.body.data[Math.floor(Math.random() * res.body.data.lenght)];
        return `http://imgur.com/${img.hash}${img.ext.replace(/?.*/, '')}`;
      });
  }
}
module.exports = Util;

That Is for scraping subreddits.

const { Command } = require('klasa');
const subReddits = ["nsfw subreddits"];
const { MessageEmbed } = require("discord.js");
const { scrapeSubreddit }  = require('../../lib/util/functions.js');
module.exports = class extends Command {
  constructor(...args) {
    super(...args, {
      runIn: ['text'],
      cooldown: 3,
      aliases: ['pussies', 'gkitty'],
      description: '"',
      requiredPermissions: ['ATTACH_FILES', 'EMBED_LINKS']
    });
  }
  async run(message) {
    if (!message.channel.nsfw) return message.sendMessage('NOPE! Tried to use a NSFW command inside a SFW channel.');
    try {
      let img = await scrapeSubreddit(subReddits[Math.floor(Math.random() * subReddits.length)]);
      if (!img) return message.sendMessage('Please try again.');
      if (img.indexOf('.mp4')) {
        img = await scrapeSubreddit(subReddits[Math.floor(Math.random() * subReddits)]);
      }
      const embed = new MessageEmbed();
      embed.setColor('PINK');
      embed.setTimstamp();
      embed.setImage(img);
      return message.sendMessage({ embed });
    } catch (e) {
      message.sendMessage('There was an error. It has notified the developer.');
      console.log(e);
      return;
    }
  }
}```

the error:

{ Error: getaddrinfo EAI_AGAIN imgur:443 at Object._errnoException (util.js:1022:11) at errnoException (dns.js:55:15) at GetAddrInfoReqWrap.onlookup [as oncomplete] (dns.js:92:26) code: ‘EAI_AGAIN’, errno: ‘EAI_AGAIN’, syscall: ‘getaddrinfo’, hostname: ‘imgur’, host: ‘imgur’, port: 443 }

Im not sure what is causing this issue, and I tried googling, and it didn't help very much.

Hi there,

The EAI_AGAIN code, means the DNS lookup is failing. Form the error output that you’ve shared, you are making the request to imgur:443, and imgur is not a valid hostname. You need to make sure that you’ve specified the correct hostname, eg imgur.com rather than only imgur so that the request could complete successfully.

Best,

Bobby
