A Discord Music Bot written in JavaScript, the discord.js library and discord.js-commando framework


Installing the dependencies

npm i


Make a config.json file in the root directory of the project and add:

  "prefix": "!",  // You can change the prefix to whatever you want it doesn't have to be - !
  "token": "Your-Bot-Token",
  "tenorAPI": "tenor-API-key",
  "newsAPI": "news-api-key",
  "youtubeAPI": "youtube-api-key",
  "yandexAPI": "yandex-api-key",
  "geniusLyricsAPI": "genius-api-key"

Open index.js and change the ID in line 30 to your discord user ID

I run the bot on a debian 9 environment so it might not work as intended on other operating systems(although it should), if you need a guide on how to install node.js on debian 9 or ubuntu I will link one in the resources down below.

Also, no matter what operating system you have, make sure ffmpeg and python 2.7 are installed. Discord.js now requires Node version greater than or equal to 12.0.0 .

If you are not cloning this repo, make sure your dependencies versions are the same as this repo’s.
