HiveBotPH Updates And Some Ramblings Of A Dev

avatar

Recently @jazzhero has given me access to the tools that HiveBotPH is using. If you notice the bot is down, you can ping me in discord so I can investigate and fix it for you. Jazz has been busy lately with real life stuff so he can't give out his 100% to the bot he made.


If you don't know what HiveBotPH does, you can read previous posts from @jazzhero or maybe you can read this latest post from @adamada.


Recently DiscordJS released v14 but our bot is still using v12. It's a big transition and for sure, there will be breaking changes. We are planning to code from scratch and not just update the code. It's also a good opportunity to improve the code. I heard from jazz that the code has 3,000 LOC (lines of code). That's a lot actually. I'm not sure yet why but I think it can be improved. I just hope I can really improve it.

Aside from updating the bot to the latest DiscordJS version, we're also planning to move the bot from Heroku to Google Cloud. I don't think the bot is that big that we will be over the free tier. This is yet to be done, probably next month when I have my own laptop.

Actually I don't have a laptop right now. I just gave out my mac book to my brother who lives in the Philippines so he can use it for his thesis. Currently I am using my boyfriend's mac book so I can at least do small stuff that requires me to use a laptop. I also don't want to use my work laptop for the bot because it's the company's laptop. LOL

But don't worry, come October I would be ordering my new laptop. Not yet sure which of the 2 should I get, the Pro or the Air but my mind is already set to get the latest mac book. I know it's a luxury to get it, but I can't imagine myself being back to windows after I have seen the convenience of using a mac book.

Actually I am already using Google Cloud for a sample bot I created that's using DiscordJS v14. It's just really a simple bot, nothing fancy. I was just testing out if we can use Google Cloud as an alternative to Heroku. And it seems to be going well so we'll probably put the new HiveBotPH in Google Cloud.

And yessss, you read it right!

It's going to be the new bot. It's like v2 of HiveBotPH but we will be using a different name. More like a new sibling has been born. And the older sibling has to retire. 😅 At least that's what I am imagining.

It's also a good rebranding of the bot. It still works now but we want to add more features to it. Actually, @adamada wants to add more features. He's like my client that wants a lot of stuff. 😂 But yeah, I also think it's good to add more features to it. He thinks, I'll code. Or maybe @jazzhero can help me code too. (Don't leave me coding all alone jazz!)

Since we're in the topic of rebranding, I haven't decided actually what the name of the sibling bot is. I'm in a dilemma choosing between the names Kem-Bot and BatiBot.


Kembot is a Filipino term that literally means shaking of the hips. Recently it's been associated with the word twerking so to kembot means to twerk.

BatiBot is a famous Filipino TV show from the past, I forgot, 90s or maybe older. It's an educational show and its target audience are the kids, so we can learn while also being entertained. I tried checking the meaning in Tagalog.com and it means enduring or strong. (I'm a Bisaya so I don't know if this is true). LOL


Soooo...

Can you help me decide which of the 2 names should I name the newest bot of HivePH? Of course, as I have said earlier, we want to add more features to this new bot so it's not just going to be limited to the usage of the HivePH community.

I would probably need a new logo for this bot too. I'm not artsy so I have no idea what to do with this. Probably if someone could help me with it, then great! If not, then I'll just probably look for a way to generate a cute logo.


In the next month, when I get my new laptop, I'll start working on these things so it would be a busy Autumn and Winter for me. Even if I'm here on Hive, I still have my real life goals and bucket list to accomplish so it may be a slow progress but it's progress.

It's also my first time to code a discord bot and it's really an exciting thing for me. If I have questions and stuck on something, I think I'll be asking around some people here on Hive. 🙏 yoroshiku onegaishimasu

I'm so excited to see the new bot come to life, with more added features! Aren't you? 😅

That would be all. I realized I have said too much. It was supposed to be a small update on my end. LOL


If you reached here reading, thank you!
See you around! じゃあ、またね!

This is exciting! We use this bot in TheTerminal server, although it's in a channel that only Staff can access. I think it's really cool that you're using your brains for some dev work now! Kudos! 😁

(Edited)

Both Kembot and Batibot have meaningful connotations about the bot. Kembot sounds like a modern generation bot and at the same time portraying the swaying of the hips with the famous Filipino expression, “Kunting kembot na lang” most especially when composing a blog. On the other hand, Batibot is something that is educational. I belong to the 90s generation so I have watched this educational series. As for me both names of the bot are really very nice, but I would always prefer Kembot as it sounds chill and cool. Like whenever I saw it responding to me like, “Hi pinkchic,” I felt like it is a very enthusiastic bot that is always there for me in a click. It would kembot for me just to be there. Hehe. I love you witty! @wittyzell i-kembot mo na yan.

Wow you're smart and intelligent @wittyzell. I am hoping for the best for you as you do the coding. I know it is not that easy but I know you can do it! Ajah.

Im in 90s but I am not familiar with the Batibot, might be because we don't have television back then and even now, lol.

In terms of remembering the name, I like more Kembot as we do it most of the time hehehe. But if we look at the meaning, Batibot is more meaningful.

Anyway, bati means pangit in ilonggo dialect if I'm not mistaken, lol.

Good luck witty.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts @jenthoughts!
Really appreciate it.
TBH I haven't watched batibot when I was younger too, but it's a famous show. When I was a young kid, I always go out to play and not watch TV 😂
Yeah bati means ugly or not good so yeah I'll try to put that to mind too when I decide the name. Thank you!

Gosh! That's awesome miss @wittyzell. I believe that you'll finish it sooner and I think the best name for the bot is Kem-Bot since we like to twerk. Lol! 3k LOC is definitely a long codes. Hard to pin rewrite and update some of them if ever. Break a leg!

Looking forward to the new big brother / sister. The current one has served us well and made our life a lot easier, but as users, we always want more. Now you have mentioned on the chain that you're doing the new one, there's no getting out. The clock is ticking!!!!! 😉

Joking, thanks for all the work you guys are doing!

Oh nooo! Mentioning it on chain is not a good idea because I would be held accountable for it. Adamada was so persistent in telling me to make a post about it. 😂 It puts a lot of weight on my shoulders but it's fine.
It's about time to add more features to it anyways.

As a user, I completely understand. I for one want to have more features added to the bot.

Thank you! I'll try my best to make the sibling bot a better one!

For me Kembot will be a better name, rather than Batibot. Once you started the commission work with Adam for sure that there's multiple projects that you will be connected to. This will be a never ending rabbit hole that you will just be tied with. Is it is bad thing? Only you can decide for that.

I am excited on the new features to be added and with the incorporation of your thoughts and personality for sure the bot will be a great help with our community and the other communities that it is being used to.

Great job Witty - witty da best.

What about Batibot? I also searched for the meaning of the word and it says small but strong and robust. Parang it describes the Filipinos with the word strong and robust, pwede ding maliit 🤏, chos hahaha.

Hahahahahaha I know what you mean! 😂
So far, you're the only one suggesting to use batibot. It has a deep meaning true but someone said "bati" from batibot means "not good" or "bad" in bisaya eh, kaya ayown parang na convince naman ako. hahaha
