RABot, the RA Discord Robot

RABot is the the official RetroAchievements Discord robot. Therefore, to interact with him, you need to be a member of the RA Discord server.

RABot has many cool and useful commands and in this page you'll see some examples of how some of them can be used.

RABot is powered by JavaScript, Node.js, discord.js and Commando.
