First of all, we would like to thank Rapptz for the original discord.py library. Pycord is a maintained fork of this library.
We would also like to thank the discord.js guide, which inspired this guide style-wise, and the original Pycord Guide, which inspired some content in this guide.
We created this guide using Docusaurus v2, a modern static site generator for React. We would also like to thank Danktuary for his
@discord-message-components/react package, from which we took the Discord message components.
And finally, we would like to thank the amazing and loving community of Pycord users, contributors and developers.
