[CustomAPI] Quote system


Bless up, you a real one G


how to use str.slice() to silence the Successfully added entry #? tnx~~


Instead of

$(urlfetch http://twitch.center/customapi/addquote?token=YOURTOKEN&data=$(querystring))


$(eval `$(urlfetch http://twitch.center/customapi/addquote?token=YOURTOKEN&data=$(querystring))`;" ")


Hello! I was just wondering if I could have some help getting the !editquote command to work. I have tried adding it in my channel as suggested, but when I test it, I always get “Invalid Entry Index” from Nightbot. I’m wondering if it has to do with the way I formatted my quotes, with dates and names, which is different from the default way. Other than that, I have no idea what could be causing it. What I’m adding in is

$(urlfetch http://twitch.center/customapi/editquote?token=MYTOKEN&data=$(querystring))

and my addquote command is

$(urlfetch http://twitch.center/customapi/addquote?token=MYTOKEN&data="$(eval var q = “$(query)”; q.slice(q.indexOf(" “) + 1))” - $(touser), $(time US/Eastern “L”))

Any help would be greatly appreciated!


You have to type !editquote ENTRYINDEX NEWVALUE
For example: !editquote 1 New value for first quote

Also, you aren’t properly encoding the quote in your addquote command. The quote should be encoded so that if you type special characters like & when using your addquote command, they are treated as data and not as special characters. Here is a fixed version:

$(urlfetch http://twitch.center/customapi/addquote?token=MYTOKEN&data=$(eval var q = decodeURIComponent("$(querystring)"); encodeURIComponent("\"" + q.slice(q.indexOf(" ") + 1) + "\" - "))$(querystring $(touser), $(time US/Eastern "L")))


Thank you so much! It all works properly now. Thanks for fixing my addquote as well. I was wondering why special characters broke the quote, but I figured it might be a limitation of the bot. Turns out it was just me not knowing what I was doing. I was wondering if it was possible to keep the format when I do !editquote. What I mean is, I currently have to do this
And I would like to not have to add the whole formatting in every time when I edit a quote, and just edit the part in quotation marks ONLY, not the whole date and everything. It’s not that big of a deal if I have to do it manually that way, but I was just curious. Thank you for all of your help!


Yes, but it will require you to make a second command named _!editquote and make !editquote an alias to _!editquote

Here are the commands:

!editquote (alias to _!editquote)
$(eval e=encodeURIComponent;m=decodeURIComponent("$(querystring)").match(/^(\d+) (.+)/);m?e(`${e(m[1])} ${e(m[2])}`):"0") $(urlfetch $(eval m=decodeURIComponent("$(querystring)").match(/^(\d+) .+/);m?`http://twitch.center/customapi/quote?token=PUBLICTOKEN&data=${encodeURIComponent(m[1])}&no_id=1`:"0"))

$(urlfetch http://twitch.center/customapi/editquote?token=PRIVATETOKEN&data=$(eval d=decodeURIComponent;if((a=d("$(querystring)").match(/^([^ ]+) (.*)/))&&(b=d(a[1]).match(/(\d+) (.+)/))&&(c=a[2].match(/^".*"([^"]*)$/)))encodeURIComponent(`${d(b[1])} "${d(b[2])}"${c[1]}`);else"0"))


Thank you so much for all of your help @am_1! I appreciate it a ton. I wish I knew all of this a year ago when I started setting up this API. You are very helpful.


But actually i want to run a if statement like this

$(eval decodeURIComponent("$(querystring $(2))").toLowerCase==“ID”?$(urlfetch http://twitch.center/customapi/addquote?token=TOKEN&data=$(querystring)).slice() +“You are right”:"$(user) Fail!")

If user say ID in second string, hide alert and show you are right, if not, show fail.


Add a random quote function?


If you don’t add a number a random quote is shown.


alright i tried learning this on my own but have had no success. the custom api for recent followers will not work for me keeps popping up saying " The most recent followers are No channel"


@ehsankia I’ve noticed that the negative index causes the last added quote to be listed as either “-1”, “0” or the listed number (example 259). Additionally, if we call “!quote” and a string/word and a quote is not found, it only pulls the last quote. Is it possible to either respond with a random quote or “no quote found”?

Example: “!quote curse” is used, however, no quote is found using the word “curse” so it pulls the last quote added.


Is there any way nightbot does not need to send me an answer?

[CustomAPI] Queue system

@coffeman0 You can use $(eval) to make Nightbot send a request to the API but also not output its response like so:

$(eval a='$(urlfetch http://twitch.center/customapi/addquote?token=yourPrivateTokenHere&data=dataInput)';' ')

Creating the variable a will call the $(urlfetch) variable within the $(eval), using the API. Then it’ll make Nightbot output a space, which will then make the message blank.


I am using the quote system for my game requests so people do !gamerequest (name of game) and it adds it to the list. My issue is the ! command is not seen to my viewers so i was wondering if there was a way for it to respond with what they added.
Nightbot currently says this: Successfully added entry #4
However it would be cool if it said this: Successfully added entry #4 - Zelda

or whatever. or even a line after that simply said the game name. any thoughts or Ideas… thank you all


@Durendx The response for the command can be:

$(urlfetch http://twitch.center/customapi/addquote?token=...) - $(query)

Nightbot would say “Successfully added entry #X” then say what was added in the $(query) after that.


@ehsankia, do you know if the !delquote and !editquote commands are not working at the moment? I just found this thread and added to my channel but those 2 commands are not functioning right.

I have added 4 quotes just fine and they show when I !quote 1 or 3 but when I do !delquote 3 or 1, it says “no matching entry found”

Are you able to help?


I don’t know if this is still being responded to but how do you make nightbot say “quote #3” instead of just “3.”? Also when I try to say !quote #3 instead of !quote 3 it doesn’t recognize that either. It seems to not recognize the # at all. I’m not great with programming so any help would be appreciated


@andywall In your command response just do something like:

Quote #$(urlfetch http://twitch.center/customapi/...)
