Getting #feed updates announced across servers

Apologies if this is poorly worded, I’m having a hard time trying to think of how to explain this.
Is it possible we can get a workaround to having updates posted on #feed into other servers, since normal updates posted through #feed don’t get across to servers that follow the channel?

It’s because each message needs to individually be clicked and broadcasted ( by an admin in the FP discord )

I’m sure you can make a bot that’d do it

The only way you can get it - make your own script to check and post updates from https://commits.facepunch.com/r/sbox?format=json using a webhook.

Or whoever is working on Facepunch’s discord bot can make it so that every new message in the #feed channel is auto-published.

If you can make them auto-publish, I’d do that. Can anyone let me know how?

This works decent. Here’s the source as well chief

You’d probably want to rip out just the part that does the publishing

These seem like good ideas but I’m not sure it would be a great idea to have more bots than necessary. Perhaps @Jakb can implement this into his Peacekeeper? It would reduce the amount of bots being used.

With garrys approval this should be very easy to implement

I linked the source of the bot with the entire purpose of it being integrated into an existing bot, since garry asked how to do it. It’s maybe a block of 10 lines, I’m sure it’d get approved.

Help the gmod discord as well so it can be used there <3

EDIT: I thought this post would get merged, sorry for double reply

I just need to check if the message was sent in a channel named “feed” in the on_message event and if it then do await message.publish, that’s under 10 lines by far.

And Spar handles the Toolgun bot in the Gmod discord, I don’t wanna take over the place. And Toolgun has things built in to manage the #servers channel

I’ve just finished the functionality of this and it will be in the bot as soon as Alistair can update it on the server for me
