Initial Setup

Config File

Ideally, you should save your configs in an .env file. Out of simplicity for this guide, we are saving it in a config.json file.

Create a file named config.json in your project folder and insert the following content:

{
"token": "YOUR_TOKEN_HERE",
"prefix": "!"
}

Edit the main file

Open the index.js file which you have created earlier and then insert the following content:

const Discord = require("discordeno");
const config = require("./config.json");

const client = Discord.createBot({
events: {
ready(client, payload) {
console.log(`Successfully connected Shard ${payload.shardId} to the gateway`);
},
},
intents: ["Guilds", "GuildMessages"],
token: config.token,
});

Discord.startBot(client);

Now you can start your bot by running the following command in your terminal:

$ node index.js
