Build A Bot (DiscordJS) — A Bot Factory and Revealing Module Design Pattern

Transformation

As I said, we will transform our previous code into a factory function. This means that we will rely more on parameters and configuration given when using the factory rather than when setting it up. So, first of all, let’s clean up a bit. We’re going to throw out a lot of our old code.

Adjustments

As we will get our config handed in from now on, we need to make a few minor adjustments. First of all, we need to rewrite our bot.load() function as follows.

Bonus

You might have noticed that our new console log for multiple bots does not tell us which loading message belongs to which bot. To amend this, I’ve made another minor adjustment to add a short tag to those messages.

Wrapping up

We’ve turned our bot code into a bot factory and used well-proven and time-tested design patterns along the way.
