First, make sure you have all the required tools installed on your local machine then continue with these steps.
# Clone the repository git clone https://github.com/TannerGabriel/discord-bot.git # Enter into the directory cd discord-bot/ # Install the dependencies npm install
Important: Make sure that your bot has the
applications.commands application scope enabled, which can be found under the
OAuth2 tap on the developer portal
After cloning the project and installing all dependencies, you need to add your Discord API token in the config.json file.
Starting the application
Starting the application using Docker
# Build the image docker build --tag discordbot . # Run the image docker run -d discordbot
Before you can use the bots slash command you first need to add them to your Discord server. You can use the
!deploy command to do so.
After deploying the commands you should be able to see and access them by typing a slash:

Here is a list of common errors and how you can fix them.
Dependencies aren't up to date
The packages used in this repository get updated often, especially the ytdl-core package. That is why it is always worth a try updating those if you get an error like
invalid URL: undefined or when the bot crashes when running the play command.
npm install ytdl-core@latest
FFMPEG is not installed on the machine running the bot
play command requires FFMPEG to be installed on the machine that is running the bot. You can download it on the official FFMPEG website. Note: This isn't relevant if you use the Dockerfile because it will install FFMPEG inside of the container.
