The OrgaTalk Discord community uses roles to tag members with the LAN party organizer teams they are part of. This tool exports those to a static HTML file for display on the web.
Since the role assignments change over time, it makes sense to regularly run the tool to update the HTML export. For this purpose, a cronjob is commonly used.
To get an overview of the available options, use the
$ orgatalk-discord-orgateams --help
roles_excluded property expects a list of role names to exclude
from the output. This can be roles only given to bots or, in the case of
the OrgaTalk community, anything that does not represent an organizer
Then run the program, specifying it:
$ orgatalk-discord-orgateams --config=your-config.toml
The output will be written to standard output (stdout). To write the
output to a file, specify the
$ orgatalk-discord-orgateams --config=your-config.toml --output=output.html
By default, the output format is HTML. Alternatively, it can be plain text …
$ orgatalk-discord-orgateams --config=your-config.toml --format=text
… or JSON:
$ orgatalk-discord-orgateams --config=your-config.toml --format=json
Import Roles From File
Instead of fetching roles from the Discord API on every invocation, they can be read from a local JSON file:
$ orgatalk-discord-orgateams --config=your-config.toml --roles-input=roles.json
That expects the roles to first be exported like this:
$ orgatalk-discord-orgateams --config=your-config.toml --format=json --output=roles.json
This avoids unnecessary requests to the Discord API and, thus, speeds up the program. It is helpful during development and customization of the HTML and text templates.
