A Discord bot that creates space related events and sends live streams!

Add to Server GitHub

The open source LiveLaunch Discord bot creates scheduled events in your guild when enabled using the data from the Launch Library 2 API, ran by The Space Devs. The events are maintained by the bot, so they remain up to date with the most recent information.
This means the bot will automatically start, cancel and move the events around when the schedule changes.

Secondly, the news feature can send the latest space related news to your specified channel. Servers can even filter their news by adding news site filters. The news feature uses the Spaceflight News API (SNAPI), which is also ran by The Space Devs.

Further more, the bot can also send YouTube livestreams in your assigned channel using Discord webhooks to make it look like the actual YouTube channel.

The bot can also send notifications in the form of countdowns and status changes (liftoff, hold, success/failure/partial failure).
The countdown can be enabled for events and/or launches and include/exclude the Discord scheduled events when enabled.
The status notifications can be configured independently, so you could only enable liftoff notifications if desired.
