BotBlockAPI

The BotBlockAPI is the essential class for loading botlist sites and their API tokens to then post the Guild counts.
Posting the guild counts is handled through the PostAction class.

Getting started

To start, you need to add the sites and their corresponding API-tokens to the BotBlockAPI class.
You may receive an API-token from the bot lists your bot is listed on.

In order to do this, use the BotBlockAPI.Builder to easily create an instance of BotBlockAPI.

Builder

The Builder is a internal class inside the BotBlockAPI to create an instance of BotBlockAPI easy and fast.
The class offers the following methods to use:

addAuthToken(Site, String)

Required: Yes (You have to use it at least once)

Adds the provided Site and token to the HashMap.

addAuthToken(String, String)

Required: Yes (You have to use it at least once)

Adds the provided Site and token to the HashMap.
A list of all supported sites can be found on the API doc of BotBlock

setAuthTokens(HashMap<String, String>)

Required: Yes (When you didn't use addAuthToken(..., String) at least once.)

Similar to addAuthToken but instead directly sets the HashMap.
This will overwrite every previously set entry.

setUpdateInterval(Integer)

Required: No. (Default is 30)

Sets the delay (in minutes) in which the auto-post option should post the guild counts to the BotBlock API.
The minimum delay is 2 minutes. Anything below this number will throw an IllegalArgumentException.

build()

Required: Yes

Builds the Instance of the BotBlockAPI with the previously set information.
