Get the value of a defined option.

Example of how to define options

For this example, we'll assume the user ran the command as /inspect input:example text user:@Sylver#1058

{option;input} // "example text"
{option;user} // "111372124383428608"
{user.username;{option;user}} // "Sylver"

And for this example, we'll assume the user ran the command as /inspect input:example text

{option;input} // "example text"
{option;user} // "", because the user didn't provide a user option

{time format;time}

Formats time as a string. Is compatible with any of the .createdAt tags.


  • time: Can be any time that the bot can parse. This includes millisecond timestamps 1644856250309, unix timestamps 1644856250, relative times 5 hours, ISO timestamps 2022-02-14T16:31:26.725Z and many others. Defaults to the current time.
  • format: Can be a timestamp style - names or descriptions both work. If no style is provided, unix timestamp is returned. This should only be used when outputting time to users as it returns the time formatted with Discord's timestamp markdown.
{time}  // 1636084903
{time format=relative_time;5 hours ago} // 5 hours ago
{time;2021-11-05T04:01:43.661Z} // 1636084903
{time format=relative_time;2022-08-21} // in 10 months

{casing mode;input}

Changes the casing of a string.

Accepted modes: lower for lowercase upper for uppercase first to capitalise the first letter title for "Title Case" camel for camelCase constant for CONSTANT_CASE


Returns the number of characters in a string and the number of elements in an array.

{length;pog}  // 3
{length;{[one;two;three]}} // 3

{isSnowflake lax return_id;target}

Determines whether the target string is a snowflake.


  • lax: Whether to accept snowflakes surrounded by characters or not.
  • return_id: Whether to return a boolean or an ID. If the target is not a snowflake and return_id is set to true, the tag outputs nothing.
{isSnowflake;111372124383428608}  // true
{isSnowflake;hello} // false
{isSnowflake;123098123} // false
{isSnowflake lax=true; hello 355876124779347968} // true
{isSnowflake lax=true return_id=true;<@111372124383428608>} // 111372124383428608

{snippet maxLength=100 suffix=… extra;target}

Create a snippet of a string, truncating it if it is over the max length.


  • maxLength: The maximum length of the snippet.
  • suffix: The suffix to add to the end of the snippet if it is truncated.
  • extra: The extra text to add to the end of the snippet, regardless of whether its truncated.
  • target: The string to create a snippet from.


Get a settings value from a plugin. This tag is intended mostly for internal use and as such there is no official list of all the settings keys available.


  • pluginCode: The code of the plugin to get settings of, for example suggestions.
  • settingsKey: The settings key to get, for example anonymousSuggestions would check if the bot should make suggestions anonymous for the suggestions plugin.

{find case_insensitive=true return_all=false;target;pattern}

Finds pattern in target and returns the first match or all matches if specified. Regular expressions are supported.


  • case_insensitive: Whether the search should ignore case or not. Is incompatible with regex; use the flag i instead.
  • return_all: Whether to return an array of all matches or only the first one. Cannot be used without /regex/g.
  • target: The string to search.
  • pattern: The string or regex pattern to find.
{find;hello world;hello}     // hello
{find;hello world;nothing}
{find case_insensitive=false;hello world;HELLO} // HELLO
{find;hello world;/hello/i} // hello
{find return_all=true;hello hello hello world;/hello/ig} // {[hello;hello;hello]}

{replace replace_all=true case_insensitive=true;target;pattern;replacement}

Replaces matches of pattern in target by replacement. Regular expressions are supported.


  • case_insensitive: Whether the search should ignore case or not. Is incompatible with regex; use the flag i instead.
  • replace_all: Whether to replace all matches or only the first one. Is incompatible with regex; use the flag g instead.
  • target: The string to search.
  • pattern: The string or regex pattern to find.
  • replacement: The string to put in place of the pattern.
{replace replace_all=false;hello hello;hell;hey}  // heyo hello
{replace;hello hello;hell;hey} // heyo heyo
{replace;hello hello;/hell/;hey} // heyo hello
{replace;hello hello;/hell/g;hey} // heyo heyo


Holds up processing. This does not schedule execution for later, it pauses execution until the sleep duration is up. You should only use this in very specific cases and avoid it entirely if possible.

{math precision_fix=true;expr}

Evaluates math. precision_fix enables a hack that fixes floating point precision errors, but may cause issues in very specific circumstances. Realistically nothing you do with actions should require disabling precision_fix.

{random length=1 return_array=false;haystack}

Gets a random item from a list. length is the number of items to return. When length is true, you can choose to return the random items in an array with return_array.

{random;123}           // 2
{random;{[1;2;3]}} // 1
{random length=2;123} // 21
{random length=2 return_array=true;123} // {[2;1]}

Performs a HTTP request to a URL.

application/json will be parsed as JSON. application/xml, text/xml, application/rss+xml and application/atom+xml will be parsed as XML.

{=data;{fetch;}}\n{$data.body.ok}  // true


Splits input into an array at separator. separator can be an arbitrary string or regex pattern.

{split;one,two,three;,}          // {[one;two;three]}
{split;woah party tricks;/ +/g} // {[woah;party;tricks]}
{split;one,two,three;/(,)/g} // {[one;,;two;,;three]}, you can use groups to keep the separator in the output array.

{push return?;array;value}

Adds an item to the end of an array.

This will mutate the original array, which is why nothing is returned by default.

{push;{$array};two} // no output
{$array} // {[one;two]}
{push return;{$array};three} // {[one;two;three]}

{unshift return?;array;value}

Adds an item to the front of an array. Essentially the same as {push} but the item is added to the beginning of the array.

{unshift;{$array};two} // no output
{$array} // {[two;three]}
{unshift return;{$array};one} // {[one;two;three]}


Returns and deletes the first item of an array.

{shift;{$array}} // one
{$array} // {[two;three]}


Returns and deletes the last item of an array.

{pop;{$array}} // three
{$array} // {[onw;two]}

{or boolean?;...}

Gets the first parameter that is not empty or falsy. The boolean option can be used to return a boolean instead of the first valid value.

{or;;two}       // "two"
{or;;} // no output
{or;false;two} // "two"
{or;one;two} // "one", "two" is never evaluated
{or boolean;one;two} // true
{or boolean;;} // false

{and boolean?;...}

Ensures all parameters are present, returning the last parameter if all are valid. The boolean option can be used to return a boolean instead of the last parameter if all are valid.

{and;;two}     // no output, "two" is never evaluated
{and;one;two} // "one", "two" is evaluated
{and;;} // no output
{and boolean;one;two} // true
{and boolean;one;} // false


Formats a number. Formats using the context locale if possible (for example, the guild language).

{formatNumber;1000.5} // 1,000.5
{formatNumber;1000.5} // 1 000,5 for some other languages


Compares different values and executes instructions based on the result. Syntax is {if;condition;run_if_true;run_if_false}. condition is either a boolean or a comparison with two elements and an operator. The available operators are ==, ===, !=, !==, >, >=, <, <=, and matches.

// "==" is used for case-insensitive comparison
{if;word;==;WORD;yay;nay} // yay

// "===" is for case-sensitive comparison
{if;word;===;WORD;yay;nay} // nay

// "matches" can be used for matching regex
{if;word;matches;/[a-z]+/gu;yay;nay} // yay

// Boolean-like values are coerced to booleans before comparison
{if;true;===;yes;yay;nay} // yay

// Numbers are compared as numbers
{if;5;<;10;yay;nay} // yay

// Conditional parsing is used, so in this example only "yay" is ever sent.
// This is an exception instead of a rule as most other tags will parse all parameters regardless.
{if;true;{channel.send;yay};{channel.send;nay}} // yay


Iterates over array items until {break} is encountered or it reaches the end of the array.


// regular format
{for;{=item};{$array};{$item}} // one two three

// block format


Breaks for-loops early. In this example, only the first item would ever be output.



Throws an engine error. Depending on your action setup, these will be shown to the user and logged just as regular engine errors would be.


Catches a thrown error.

{catch;{throw;Test error};Oh no! Something went wrong}  // Oh no! Something went wrong
{catch;{throw;Oopsy poopsy!}}
{catch;{}} // 111372124383428608


Repeats a string a given number of times.

{repeat;Hello;3} // HelloHelloHello


Used to return early or to return rich data that may be butchered otherwise. Can be used in functions and the top-level scope. See more in the returning or functions sections.


Used to void the output of its children.

Hello {void;World} // "Hello "


Get the keys of an object. Useful when you want to iterate over the keys or values of an object. Only top-level keys are returned

{keys;{$object}} // {[key;nested]}


Join the items of an array together with the given separator.

{join;{$array};,} // one,two,three


Get a random number between min and max. If max is not specified, min is used as the maximum and 0 is used as the minimum.


Determine if input is a valid URL. This will not query the domain to see if it is registered, but it will check for a valid protocol and top-level domain.


Get a slice of an array or string. If end is not specified, it is assumed to be the length of the target.

{slice;{$array};1} // {[two;three]}
{slice;{$array};1;2} // {[two]}


Generate a random string.

  • length is the length of the string to generate
  • alphabet is the alphabet to use. If not specified, it is abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ0123456789


Check whether an array includes an item.

{includes;{$array};two} // true


Import a script action. View more information on the imports guide.

// In the script
Hello World!
// In another action
{my_function} // "Hello World!"


Sort an array. Returns a new array and does not mutate the original.

  • array the array to sort
  • key the key to sort by if the array is an array of objects.
