Build Status

Highly configurable tip bot for the chat plattform discord. DO NOT RUN THIS CODE UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING!

Instead of executing this code yourself, feel free to contact me at https://discord.gg/r3NspwB to discuss me hosting it for you.

If you collect some kind of bounty or donation(s), I'd appreciate you forwarding some of it after your hosting costs.


In no event shall this bot or it's dev be responsible in the event of lost, stolen or misdirected funds.


  • First we launch the main watcher at src/discordtipbot.cr
  • This reads the config file
  • It then launches a fiber for each bot


  • docker

Initial setup

  • Create a overlay network: docker network create -d overlay --attachable dtb
  • Clone and cd into this repository: git clone https://github.com/greenbigfrog/discordtipbot.git
  • Create a directory which will contain all the tipbot related stuff: mkdir tipbot
  • Copy and edit sample-config.json into tipbot
  • Modify scripts/postgres-init.sh to reflect the various coins, which will both create the required databases, as well as initialize a empty schema
  • Launch watchtower to automatically watch for changes to the images (in usual build process made by Travis): docker run -d --name watchtower --network dtb -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock v2tec/watchtower
  • Start a docker container called database, which'll mount a folder called postgres-data in the local directory: docker run -d --name database --network dtb -v $PWD/postgres-data:/var/lib/postgresql/data -v $PWD/../sql/schema.sql:/schema.sql -v $PWD/../scripts/postgres-init.sh:/docker-entrypoint-initdb.d/postgres-init.sh -d postgres:11.1-alpine


scripts/deploy_to_docker.bash contains instructions to build both a dtb-launcher and dtb-website image which will then contain binaries.


  • Make sure you are in the directory with the config file and postgres data
  • Database: docker run -d --name database --network dtb -v $PWD/postgres-data:/var/lib/postgresql/data postgres:11.1-alpine
  • TipBot: docker run -d --name discordbot --network dtb -v $PWD/config.json:/config.json greenbigfrog/dtb-launcher:latest
  • Website: docker run -d --name website --network dtb -v $PWD/config.json:/config.json greenbigfrog/dtb-website:latest
  • Wallet: docker run -d --name dogecoind --network dtb -v ~/.dogecoin/:/dogecoin/.dogecoin/ greenbigfrog/dogecoin -printtoconsole

The website requires a CF origin certificate to be stored in docker config at /origin_cert.pub and the key at /origin_cert.priv

  • cli: docker run --rm -ti --network dtb -v ~/.dogecoin/:/dogecoin/.dogecoin/ greenbigfrog/dogecoin dogecoin-cli -rpcconnect=dogecoind -rpcuser=a -rpcpassword=b getinfo
  • psql: docker run --rm -ti --network dtb postgres:11.1-alpine psql -h database -U docker dogecoin


Preferably run your wallets in testnet mode by adding testnet=1 to each wallets config file during development
