Instance Attribute Details

#check_heartbeat_ackstrue, false

Heartbeat ACKs are Discord's way of verifying on the client side whether the connection is still alive. If this is set to true (default value) the gateway client will use that functionality to detect zombie connections and reconnect in such a case; however it may lead to instability if there's some problem with the ACKs. If this occurs it can simply be set to false.

Returns:

  • (true, false)

    whether or not this gateway should check for heartbeat ACKs.

Instance Method Details

#heartbeatObject

                }, compress, 100, @shard_key)
end

#inject_error(e) ⇒ Object

Injects a terminal gateway error into the handler. Useful for testing the reconnect logic.

Parameters:

  • e (Exception)

    The exception object to inject.

# File 'lib/discordrb/gateway.rb', line 234

def inject_error(e)

end

#inject_reconnect(url = nil) ⇒ Object

Injects a reconnect event (op 7) into the event processor, causing Discord to reconnect to the given gateway URL. If the URL is set to nil, it will reconnect and get an entirely new gateway URL. This method has not much use outside of testing and implementing highly custom reconnect logic.

Parameters:

  • url (String, nil) (defaults to: nil)

    the URL to connect to or nil if one should be obtained from Discord.

  data = url ? { url: url } : nil

  handle_message({
    op: Opcodes::RECONNECT,
    d: data
  }.to_json)
end

#inject_resume(seq) ⇒ Object

Injects a resume packet (op 6) into the gateway. If this is done with a running connection, it will cause an error. It has no use outside of testing stuff that I know of, but if you want to use it anyway for some reason, here it is.

Parameters:

  • seq (Integer, nil)

    The sequence ID to inject, or nil if the currently tracked one should be used.

#reconnect(attempt_resume = true) ⇒ Object

Reconnects the gateway connection in a controlled manner.

    Whether a resume should be attempted after the reconnection.

end

#send_heartbeat(sequence) ⇒ Object

Sends a heartbeat packet (op 1). This tells Discord that the current connection is still active and that the last packets until the given sequence have been processed (in case of a resume).

Parameters:

  • sequence (Integer)

    The sequence number for which to send a heartbeat.

def send_heartbeat(sequence)
  send_packet(Opcodes::HEARTBEAT, sequence)
end

#send_identify(token, properties, compress, large_threshold, shard_key = nil) ⇒ Object

Sends an identify packet (op 2). This starts a new session on the current connection and tells Discord who we are. This can only be done once a connection.

Parameters:

  • token (String)

    The token with which to authorise the session. If it belongs to a bot account, it must be prefixed with "Bot ".

  • properties (Hash<Symbol => String>)

    A list of properties for Discord to use in analytics. The following keys are recognised:

    • "$os" (recommended value: the operating system the bot is running on)
    • "$browser" (recommended value: library name)
    • "$device" (recommended value: library name)
    • "$referrer" (recommended value: empty)
    • "$referring_domain" (recommended value: empty)
  • compress (true, false)

    Whether certain large packets should be compressed using zlib.

  • large_threshold (Integer)

    The member threshold after which a server counts as large and will have to have its member list chunked.

  • shard_key (Array(Integer, Integer), nil) (defaults to: nil)

    The shard key to use for sharding, represented as [shard_id, num_shards], or nil if the bot should not be sharded.

    token: token,
    properties: properties,

  }

  # Don't include the shard key at all if it is nil as Discord checks for its mere existence
  data[:shard] = shard_key if shard_key

  send_packet(Opcodes::IDENTIFY, data)
end

#send_packet(op, packet) ⇒ Object

Sends a custom packet over the connection. This can be useful to implement future yet unimplemented functionality or for testing. You probably shouldn't use this unless you know what you're doing.

Parameters:

  • op (Integer)

    The opcode the packet should be sent as. Can be one of Opcodes or a custom value if necessary.

  • packet (Object)

    Some arbitrary JSON-serialisable data that should be sent as the d field.

  }

  send(data.to_json)
end

#send_raw(data, type = :text) ⇒ Object

Sends custom raw data over the connection. Only useful for testing; even if you know what you're doing you probably want to use #send_packet instead.

Parameters:

  • data (String)

    The data to send.

  • type (Symbol) (defaults to: :text)

    The type the WebSocket frame should have; either :text, :binary, :ping, :pong, or :close.

  send(data, type)
end

#send_request_members(server_id, query, limit) ⇒ Object

Sends a request members packet (op 8). This will order Discord to gradually sent all requested members as dispatch events with type GUILD_MEMBERS_CHUNK. It is necessary to use this method in order to get all members of a large server (see large_threshold in #send_identify), however it can also be used for other purposes.

Parameters:

  • server_id (Integer)

    The ID of the server whose members to query.

  • query (String)

    If this string is not empty, only members whose username starts with this string will be returned.

  • limit (Integer)

    How many members to send at maximum, or 0 to send all members.

    limit: limit
  }

  send_packet(Opcodes::REQUEST_MEMBERS, data)
end

#send_resume(token, session_id, seq) ⇒ Object

Sends a resume packet (op 6). This replays all events from a previous point specified by its packet sequence. This will not work if the packet to resume from has already been acknowledged using a heartbeat, or if the session ID belongs to a now invalid session.

If this packet is sent at the beginning of a connection, it will act similarly to an #identify in that it creates a session on the current connection. Unlike identify however, this packet can also be sent in an existing session and will just replay some of the events.

Parameters:

  • token (String)

    The token that was used to identify the session to resume.

  • session_id (String)

    The session ID of the session to resume.

  • seq (Integer)

    The packet sequence of the packet after which the events should be replayed.

end

#send_status_update(status, since, game, afk) ⇒ Object

Sends a status update packet (op 3). This sets the bot user's status (online/idle/...) and game playing/streaming.

Parameters:

  • status (String)

    The status that should be set (online, idle, dnd, invisible).

  • since (Integer)

    The unix timestamp in milliseconds when the status was set. Should only be provided when afk is true.

  • game (Hash<Symbol => Object>, nil)

    nil if no game should be played, or a hash of :game => "name" if a game should be played. The hash can also contain additional attributes for streaming statuses.

  • afk (true, false)

    Whether the status was set due to inactivity on the user's part.

  }

  send_packet(Opcodes::PRESENCE, data)
end

#send_voice_state_update(server_id, channel_id, self_mute, self_deaf) ⇒ Object

Sends a voice state update packet (op 4). This packet can connect a user to a voice channel, update self mute/deaf status in an existing voice connection, move the user to a new voice channel on the same server or disconnect an existing voice connection.

Parameters:

  • server_id (Integer)

    The ID of the server on which this action should occur.

  • channel_id (Integer, nil)

    The channel ID to connect/move to, or nil to disconnect.

  • self_mute (true, false)

    Whether the user should itself be muted to everyone else.

  • self_deaf (true, false)

    Whether the user should be deaf towards other users.

  send_packet(Opcodes::VOICE_STATE, data)
end

#stop(no_sync = false) ⇒ Object

Stops the bot gracefully, disconnecting the websocket without immediately killing the thread. This means that Discord is immediately aware of the closed connection and makes the bot appear offline instantly.

If this method doesn't work or you're looking for something more drastic, use #kill instead.
