This package uses the best of the NodeJS world under the hood. Discord.js is the most powerful library for creating bots and Nest.js is a progressive framework for creating well-architectured applications. This module provides fast and easy way for creating Discord bots and deep integration with your NestJS application.


  • Simple. Flexible. Easy to use.
  • Ability to create custom decorators.
  • Interact with Discord (Slash Commands, Context Menus, Message Components, Listeners).
  • Full support of NestJS guards, interceptors, filters and pipes!

For questions and support please use the Issues.


Node.js 16.6.0 or newer is required.

$ npm i necord discord.js
$ yarn add necord discord.js
$ pnpm add necord discord.js


Once the installation process is complete, we can import the NecordModule into the root AppModule:

import { NecordModule } from 'necord';
import { Module } from '@nestjs/common';

    imports: [
            token: 'DISCORD_BOT_TOKEN',
            intents: ['Guilds', 'GuildMessages', 'DirectMessages']
    providers: []
export class AppModule {

Then create app.update.ts file and add On/Once decorators for handling Discord API events:

import { Injectable, Logger } from '@nestjs/common';
import { Context, On, Once, ContextOf } from 'necord';
import { Client } from 'discord.js';

export class AppUpdate {
    private readonly logger = new Logger(;

    public constructor(private readonly client: Client) {
    public onReady(@Context() [client]: ContextOf<'ready'>) {
        this.logger.log(`Bot logged in as ${client.user.username}`);

    public onWarn(@Context() [message]: ContextOf<'warn'>) {

Whenever you need to handle any event data, use the Context decorator.
