I had a similar requirement and ended up using Restcord for that. I've got DiscordPHP handling my realtime interactions in my code but for scheduled stuff, was easier because I couldn't figure out a way to do DiscordPHP stuff without it being a reaction to an event.

Quick an dirty hack to expose the loop in the userspace and use it to hook some code periodically

class myDiscord extends Discord {
function getLoop() {
return $this->loop;

$this->discord = new myDiscord([
'token' => $this->token,
$this->discord->on('ready', function ($discord) {
$this->discord->getLoop()->addPeriodicTimer(5, function () { //every 5s
$memory = memory_get_usage() / 1024;
$formatted = number_format($memory, 3).'K';
echo "Current memory usage: {$formatted}\n";
$this->discord->on('message', function ($message, $discord) {
