So this is a pretty neat project I intermittently work on. This is a discord bot using the Discord.NET wrapper from RogueException. It makes use of the onion architecture and I tend to think while indeed a small project at this time, is the best showcase of my growth as a programmer and knowledge of OOP. One really neat feature I love to draw attention to is the command system. I sometimes get called out for overengineering the solution, but I highly disagree. One thing I've really bought into is the idea of future-proofing your application. Most discord bot command systems use hard-coded strings somewhere to dictate what command is being parsed. Something many programmers do is use a switch statement. This is fine, however I understood that as the needs for the discord server I administrate grow so will the scope of this project. I needed a more... automated solution. The idea came to me to use reflection for this so I could create/delete classes that were prefixed with the command and compiled at run time in order to be parsed and executed. Long night made short, I evolved from using Activator to compiling lambda expressions which displayed a HUGE performance increase (almost near raw hardcoded performance). This allowed me to have a solution where I don't need to manually maintain a switch block or refactor strings in the event commands change. Hope y'all dig it! https://github.com/reikotechnology/projekt-analytix Blog Writeup: https://reiko.tech/Blog/View/8
