Where can I learn how to use the Lemmy api?
cross-posted from: https://fuckreddit.tryp.digital/post/72 > As the title says, I'm trying to create my own discord bot that takes channel comments and posts them on lemmy but I'm woefully underprepared. I definitely just need some more baseline info because as always I'm already in much deeper than I should be. Thanks for any help! > > I've already setup a bot (on the same server as lemmy, exactly how it's described in the linked doc) and can successfully ping it from my server. [I used this to set it up which uses Lua](https://github.com/SinisterRectus/Discordia/wiki/Writing-Your-First-Bot) and I'm unsure if that will be an issue. I can setup node.js if need be. > > I also installed the `lemmy-js-client`. I guess I have a few questions but really I'll take any help I can get :) > > - Does the js client need to be installed in a certain location? > - Where does the block of text on the api docs go? Just in my `bot.lua` file? > - websocket or http? Does it matter? > - I need to make a POST request to lemmy to uyt the content there after I grab the comment from discord? > - Can someone recommend me a resource so I can learn more about using [the API here](https://join-lemmy.org/api/#usage)? More than willing to do the legwork on my own but I'd like to know I'm going in the right track first. > > Additionally I was trying to use [pipedream](https://pipedream.com/) for assistance. I can optionally run code right on the site as shown in the picture below but also I can use any API account or make a POST request which are 2nd and 3rd photos below respectively. I'm taking a stab at the http POST workflow in between typing this. > > ![](https://fuckreddit.tryp.digital/pictrs/image/12769013-ffaf-4725-8e43-7c9cbbda5ea1.png) > > ![](https://fuckreddit.tryp.digital/pictrs/image/e4213bf7-894c-4316-89bf-3c6543e1cf9a.png) > > ![](https://fuckreddit.tryp.digital/pictrs/image/f811173a-4dab-4ad0-a101-12fc9815a97f.png)
