Both normal users and developers may test out Discord’s many features. If you’re in the latter category, you might want to consider making a Discord bot. Developer Mode is included in the app for programmers. If you want to build a Discord bot, this development mode will give you the necessary IDs. Discord’s Developer Mode is available on all of Discord’s platforms.
Let’s move on to the first section which is “What is Developer Mode?”
What is Developer Mode in Discord?
Developer Mode allows you to see more information in the Discord application, such as your server, channel and message IDs. If you’re creating a bot to watch and publish in a specific channel, for example, you’ll need this data to point it in the proper direction. Developer Mode is available in the Discord desktop app for Windows 10 and Mac, the Discord web client, and the Android, iPhone, and iPad mobile applications.
Finding the unique IDs for users, channels, servers, and even messages is one of the most popular applications of Discord’s Developer Mode. These IDs are often required by developers in order to link their bots with Discord. When bots link to Discord, these IDs inform them which objects to interact with. These specific IDs can be found on all of Discord’s supported platforms
