DiscordV13 Template

It is meant to be used as a solid base for your Discord bot, it already comes with a main file, command and event Handler, along with permission verification, command aliases and environment variables.

How to use?

  • Clone or download this repository git clone https://github.com/Nick-Gabe/DiscordV13-template

  • Run the command “npm install” to install all the project dependencies.

  • After that, in the root folder, create a file called “.env”. You will store the variable and sensitive information here. Use the .env.example as an example and fill the .env file you created with your information.

  • Now you need to specify the intents of your bot in the main file. By default it comes with two intents, Guilds and Guild messages.

// main.js - line 4
const client = new Client({
    intents: [
        // Set the permissions your bot needs here
  • After setting them up, customize “package.json” and fill with your project information, also change the name in “package-lock.json”.
  • Now just run the command “npm run dev” and the bot shall start running, and it will automatically restart whenever you make a change to the code. (press Ctrl+C in the terminal to stop it). If you want it to start only once and don’t update when you make changes, instead use “npm start”.
