What is Discord.NET?
Discord.Net is an asynchronous, multi-platform .NET Library used to interface with the Discord API.
Where to begin?
If this is your first time using Discord.Net, you should refer to the Intro for tutorials.
If you're coming from Discord.Net V2, you should refer to the V2 -> V3 guides.
More experienced users might want to refer to the API Documentation for a breakdown of the individual objects in the library.
Nightlies are builds of Discord.NET that are still in an experimental phase, and have not been released. These are not included in the main repository, and are instead taken over by Discord.NET Labs.
Discord.NET Labs is an experimental fork of Discord.NET that implements the newest discord features for testing and development to eventually get merged into Discord.NET.
Frequently asked questions are covered in the FAQ. Read it thoroughly because most common questions are already answered there.
