A Discord bot which searches for (and displays) queries in any message.







Polybius is a Discord bot which searches for (and displays) queries in any message. Although primarily used to search Wowhead entries, it is modular and extensible to use different sites (with the suitable scraping logic).

To look up a query (default settings), simply surround the query inside double-square brackets, [[like so]].
