Preface for TypeScript Projects

In-action samples:



Import Node Module

const Pagination = require('discord-paginationembed');

Under message event

FieldsEmbed Mode

const FieldsEmbed = new Pagination.FieldsEmbed()
  // A must: an array to paginate, can be an array of any type
  .setArray([{ word: 'they are' }, { word: 'being treated' }])
  // Set users who can only interact with the instance, set as `[]` if everyone can interact.
  .setAuthorizedUsers([message.author.id])
   // A must: sets the channel where to send the embed
  .setChannel(message.channel)
  // Elements to show per page. Default: 10 elements per page
  .setElementsPerPage(2)
   // Have a page indicator (shown on message content)
  .setPageIndicator(false)
   // Format based on the array, in this case we're formatting the page based on each object's `word` property
  .formatField('Continue...', el => el.word);

// Customise embed
FieldsEmbed.embed
  .setColor(0x00FFFF)
  .setTitle('Jesus Yamato Saves the Day by Obliterating a Swarm of Abyssal Bombers!')
  .setDescription('Akagi and Kaga give their thanks to their holy saviour today as...')
  .setImage('https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-TIcwCxc7a-A/AAAAAAAAAAI/AAAAAAAAAAA/Hij7_7Qa1j0/s900-c-k-no/photo.jpg');

// Deploy embed
FieldsEmbed.build();

FieldsEmbed

Working with Asynchronous Behaviour

This assumes this is under an async function

const FieldsEmbed = new Pagination.FieldsEmbed()
  .setArray([{ name: 'John Doe' }, { name: 'Jane Doe' }])
  .setAuthorizedUsers([message.author.id])
  .setChannel(message.channel)
  .setElementsPerPage(1)
  // Initial page on deploy
  .setPage(2)
  .showPageIndicator(true)
  .formatField('Name', i => i.name)
  // Deletes the embed upon awaiting timeout
  .setDeleteOnTimeout(true)
  // Disable built-in navigation emojis, in this case: 🗑 (Delete Embed)
  .setDisabledNavigationEmojis(['DELETE'])
  // Set your own customised emojis
  .setFunctionEmojis({
    '🔄': (user, instance) => {
      const field = instance.embed.fields[0];

      if (field.name === 'Name')
        field.name = user.tag;
      else
        field.name = 'Name';
    }
  })
  // Similar to setFunctionEmojis() but this one takes only one emoji
  .addFunctionEmoji('🅱', (_, instance) => {
    const field = instance.embed.fields[0];

    if (field.name.includes('🅱'))
      field.name = 'Name';
    else
      field.name = 'Na🅱e';
  })
  // Sets whether function emojis should be deployed after navigation emojis
  .setEmojisFunctionAfterNavigation(false);

FieldsEmbed.embed
  .setColor(0xFF00AE)
  .setDescription('Test Description');

await FieldsEmbed.build();

// Will not log until FieldsEmbed.build() is finished
console.log('done');

Declare Embeds

const { MessageEmbed } = require('discord.js');
const embeds = [];

for (let i = 0; i < 5; ++i)
  embeds.push(new MessageEmbed().addField('Page', i + 1));

Embeds Mode

const myImage = message.author.displayAvatarURL();

new Pagination.Embeds()
  .setArray(embeds)
  .setAuthorizedUsers([message.author.id])
  .setChannel(message.channel)
  .setPageIndicator(true)
  .setPage(3)
   // Methods below are for customising all embeds
  .setImage(myImage)
  .setThumbnail(myImage)
  .setTitle('Test Title')
  .setDescription('Test Description')
  .setFooter('Test Footer Text')
  .setURL(myImage)
  .setColor(0xFF00AE)
  .addBlankField()
  .addField('Test Field 1', 'Test Field 1', true)
  .addField('Test Field 2', 'Test Field 2', true)
  .build();

Embeds

This assumes this is under an async function

const Embeds = new PaginationEmbed.Embeds()
  .setArray(embeds)
  .setAuthorizedUsers([message.author.id])
  .setChannel(message.channel)
  .setPageIndicator(true)
  .setTitle('Test Title')
  .setDescription('Test Description')
  .setFooter('Test Footer Text')
  .setURL('https://gazmull.github.io/discord-paginationembed')
  .setColor(0xFF00AE)
  // Sets the client's assets to utilise. Available options:
  //  - message: the client's Message object (edits the message instead of sending new one for this instance)
  //  - prompt: custom content for the message sent when prompted to jump to a page
  //      {{user}} is the placeholder for the user mention
  .setClientAssets({ message, prompt: 'Page plz {{user}}' })
  .setDeleteOnTimeout(true)
  .setDisabledNavigationEmojis(['DELETE'])
  .setFunctionEmojis({
    '': (_, instance) => {
      for (const embed of instance.array)
        embed.fields[0].value++;
    },
    '': (_, instance) => {
      for (const embed of instance.array)
        embed.fields[0].value--;
    }
  })
  // Listeners for PaginationEmbed's events
  // Upon successfull `build()`
  .on('start', () => console.log('Started!'))
  // Upon a user deleting the embed
  .on('finish', (user) => console.log(`Finished! User: ${user.username}`))
  // Upon a user reacting to the embed
  .on('react', (user, emoji) => console.log(`Reacted! User: ${user.username} | Emoji: ${emoji.name} (${emoji.id})`))
  // Upon the awaiting time expired
  .on('expire', () => console.warn('Expired!'))
  // Upon non-PaginationEmbed error (e.g: Discord API Error)
  .on('error', console.error);

await Embeds.build();
