A DiscordGo command router with tons of useful features If you find any bugs or if you have a feature request, please tell me using an issue.

NOTE: As you may have already noticed, dgc is currently a bit broken and won't work as expected. I strongly recommend using https://github.com/zekroTJA/shireikan as an alternative as it is inspired by dgc so you won't have to change that much. Sometimes in the future I may fix dgc, but currently I don't really have the motivation to do so.

Basic example

This just shows a very basic example:

func main() {
    // Discord bot logic here
    session, _ := ...

    // Create a new command router
    router := dgc.Create(&dgc.Router{
        Prefixes: []string{"!"},

    // Register a simple ping command
        Name: "ping",
        Description: "Responds with 'pong!'",
        Usage: "ping",
        Example: "ping",
        IgnoreCase: true,
        Handler: func(ctx *dgc.Ctx) {

    // Initialize the router


You can find examples for the more complex usage and all the integrated features in the examples/*.go files.


To find out how you can use the integrated argument parser, just look into the examples/arguments.go file.
