⚠️ Note: Never commit or share your token ⚠️

REQUIRED: Add the Token, Client/Application ID, Prefix, as well as a test server ID to ./config/config.json. The test server ID will be the server slash commands get deployed to when they’re in development and not quite ready to be deployed globally.

Run npm run initial-startup to install dependencies, deploy slash commands to specified test server, and run bot.

STARTUP

Run npm i to install dependencies.

Add the Token, Client/Application ID, Prefix, as well as a test server ID to ./config/config.json. The test server ID will be the server slash commands get deployed to when they’re in development and not quite ready to be deployed globally.

Next, run npm run deploy-dev to deploy slash commands to your test server, or run npm run deploy-global to deploy them globally. NOTE: Global slash commands can take up to an hour to register.

To run the project, use npm start, node index.js or node ..

You can add and remove slash commands at any time. They wont be visible though, unless you run npm run deploy-dev to deploy them to your test server, or npm run deploy-global to deploy them globally.

Deploying to a test server is ideal for development, as they deploy instantly, and only that server can use them so you don’t have people using it without it being ready.

If you decide to delete a global slash command, simply remove the file, and run npm run update-global. This will delete global slash commands no longer in ./interactions/slash_commands.

NOTE: Running npm run update-global does not add new commands, it only checks if commands have been removed. That way you have more control over when and where slash commands get released to.

Optional:

  • You can add a logs channel ID to ./config/config.json where error messages will be sent, as well as being logged in the console.
