Elixir Music

Elixir is an advanced music bot for your Discord server with support for countless platforms. Enjoy your favorite tunes with fast load times, pristine audio quality, and more -- all without the hassle of having to download and install a bunch of software.

We support popular music platforms like YouTube, Spotify, and Apple Music. You can play music by inputting a search query or by using a direct link to a song. Elixir has 4 separate instances, so different people in your server can listen to different tracks. Unlike any other Discord music bot, Elixir has a powerful queue management system. View all tracks in the queue, and their hyperlinks. Skip to any track in the queue by its position, view data about any track, and more. Arguably Elixir's signature feature, Elixir has a playlist system that allows you to create and share playlists with your friends across Discord. All custom playlists are global and can be viewed and played by all people in Elixir's userbase. Customize your custom playlist to your liking -- add songs, remove songs, add playlists, set the playlist's name, set a description, a cover URL, and more. Configure your playlist to start with a custom volume, a custom loop setting, and extras. Elixir can fetch lyrics for any song you want. This feature is powered by Genius. You can even move your ongoing music queues from one guild to another!

In addition, Elixir music also has a fully-functional REST API that allows developers to interact directly with Elixir from their own applications. With easy-to-use endpoints and simple JSON responses, Elixir is a powerful tool for developers to customize our services to their likings.

The Helios Network

Helios Practice was a public Minecraft practice PVP server for the Bedrock Edition variant of the game. The network reached a total of more than 9400 registered players and a peak of 32 concurrently online players. Due to a lack of developer motivation, time, and interest in the Minecraft Bedrock Edition community itself, as well as the notorious reason of financing, Helios Practice closed official on February 1st, 2021, marking the end of the server's 8-month period, being officially released on June 14th, 2020.

Our Mission

A group of developers dedicated to the greater community.

We are a group of committed developers and hardworking organizers with the goal to develop customized programs and software for our clients. We are committed to our work, and we dedicate ourselves to create work that benefits the public. The Ponjo Development Team was initially founded as a side hobby, but it has become much more than that since then.

We're dedicated to serving the community and providing numerous open-source projects for educational purposes: we want to inspire existing developers and help them learn more about the development workspace. Being a member of a development team is much more than simply coding. It's about collaborating with fellow developers, about planning & testing projects and applications, about analyzing existing work. No one person has all the necessary skills to complete a project: it's about working together.


I'm so happy you're interested in learning more about us. I truly hope you learn more about the world of development from checking out our work, and I hope you become inspired to make your ideas a reality in the development workspace. Remember ─ the sky's the limit.
