What is an S4D file?
An S4D file is a project file created by Scratch for Discord, a bot development tool for Discord. It contains XML that defines a bot created in Scratch for Discord. S4D files can be used to run bots in Scratch for Discord or download bots from Scratch for Discord for use on your own computer or VPS.
Discord is a text, voice, and video chat program that provides gamers and other social communities with a place to hang out online. Discord contains a series of public and private servers, organized by topic, that users can join to chat with their friends, host a virtual game night, or express their devotion to their favorite sports teams.
Advanced users can create and add bots to their Discord servers. These bots perform various functions, such as automatically welcoming new members to a server, moderating content, and rewarding a server's most active members. Scratch for Discord allows developers to create these types of bots within a block-based development environment.
As a developer is working on a bot in Scratch for Discord, they can save their progress in an S4D file. S4D files can be used to load an in-process Scratch for Discord project, run a bot through Scratch for Discord (by selecting the Run button found in the program's upper right-hand corner), or download a bot in order to host it on your own computer or Virtual Private Server.
How to open an S4D file
You can open an S4D file with Scratch for Discord, an online application. After navigating to Scratch for Discord, select File → Open a file... to open your S4D file.
To download the bot contained within an S4D file, open the file in Scratch for Discord and then select the Download button located in Scratch for Discord's upper right-hand corner. The bot will download as a .ZIP archive, which you can decompress to access the bot's component files.
