WiGLE-bot has awakened....

WiGLE-bot has awakened…add to your server today! Originally this started as a commission to make a Discord bot that interfaced with WiGLE’s API but turned into a great opportunity to learn more about bots and Python. For the unaware, WiGLE (or Wireless Geographic Logging Engine) is a website for collecting information about the different wireless hotspots worldwide. Users can register on the website and upload hotspot data like GPS coordinates, SSID, MAC address, and the encryption type used on the hotspots discovered. Each WiGLE user has a badge that displays their username, WIFI found, and rank. WiGLE USER BADGE IN-APP RANK AND STATS  The first function I wanted to create was a command that responded with the user's rank and badge. WiGLE-bot is written in and hosted on PebbleHost . I’ve open-sourced the code on Github , but if you’d like to add the bot to your Discord server, it can be found in the Discord Bot List .  COMMANDS ------------------------- .help
