This bot allows you to set up a Discord channel to get the latest Galnet News feeds.

You'll want to check out the GitHub for the latest information on the Discord bot.

And I couldn't really check it in the settings, but it uses the official API provided by Frontier Developments at

I used the following node.js libraries to create the app: * discord.js - A powerful JavaScript library for interacting with the Discord API. * node-fetch - A light-weight module that brings the Fetch API to Node.js. * rss-parser - A lightweight RSS parser, for Node and the browser. * html-to-text - An advanced html to text converter. * moment - Parse, validate, manipulate, and display dates in javascript. * moment-precise-range-plugin - A moment.js plugin to display human-readable date/time ranges. * sync-rpc - Run asynchronous commands synchronously by putting them in a separate process.
