In-Chat Buttons for Bots
Give bots the ability to create 'buttons' (clickable text) that performs an action; either making the user send a command, or perhaps sending an event to the bot.
This would allow bots to display links for people to click that performs an action.
Similar to discord embeds V2 idea
I wish something like this was possible in discord
a few of the dead sexy bots on here already do, Neko Chan being one, they utilize emoji reactions to give you a GUI of sorts but still keeping the flow of data as text (it kind of always is anyway) and simple, put emoji X here, look for increase in emoji X, or something like that, it's really beautiful to see as a interface tbh, and i'm trying to get the creator to add that to every function of the bot (or almost anyway) so that other than a few commands, everything can be done by mouse
(Warning, Google translator!!! :3 )
On many servers there are bots using text commands. Why not make the chat menu on the right button to add fast commands?
An example for "!!!play <url>" the owner can create a button "Launch music ...", and the user only needs to write a link.
As a result, the chat is sent "!!!play <link from the user>"
Where I can see bots, which are using *reactions* as buttons? :)
Desperately needed. Bots are so limited because of it compared to Slack. The only option is to use reactions which is: slow, ugly, and goofy to implement.
While this may be abused by the random bad apple of the bunch, I think it would be extremely helpful for users and devs alike.
Isn't this already a feature? I've seen it for 2FA bot on CubeCraft
Kik, Skype does this currently
For additional confort of use I think it would be relevant if the bot were to send some sugestions of command under the form of miscellaneous buttons just as :
After that the user can click on button to execute the command

keep up with skype, facebook and slack. do it :)
Any reactions from the devs?
Anything that can be abused with a text command can be abused with this, meaning introducing this feature would not increase the rate of bot abuse.
Yes! Slack has this feature but they make it a pain to use (HTTPS servers only with quiet strict measures). I would love to see this in discord and implemented with the Gateway.
Clickable text - links.
I just created a Library to do that based on reactions. :P

I would use this so much
Allow them to give buttons above the text bar for easy interaction. It would make bots fun, because no typing to remember :D
Would be great if slack webhook buttons worked in discord with the new webhooks feature!
Telegram already has this feature and it's great. JUST DO IT!
