Hosting the bot
You can host your own instance of the bot. To do so, head over to the Releases page and download the latest one. To run BlueBot, you'll need Java 8 and OpenJFX. After installing them (Google is your friend, it depends on your OS), you'll be ready to go.
If you are using the bot on several servers, in order to have a dedicated soundboard per server, you'll have to :
- Enable Discord Developer mode (in the app settings, go to Appearance -> Advanced -> Toggle Developer mode on), then right click on your server and click on
- Inside the
soundboardfolder, create a folder named like the server ID (for example, if one of the server has
264445054966991498as ID, you want to name your folder
- Drop your .mp3 files inside this folder. These sounds will only be available on this particular server.
To toggle between the general soundboard and the dedicated one, remember to use the
Running BlueBot on a headless device (VPS, Raspberry ...)
First, install Java with OpenJDK & OpenJFX:
- Install OpenJDK (ex. Debian :
sudo apt-get install openjdk-11-jdk)
- Install OpenJFX (ex Debian :
sudo apt-get install openjfx)
Since BlueBot is using JavaFX for the GUI, you'll need to install a display emulator to run the app. I personally use Xvfb
- Install Xvfb (ex. Debian :
sudo apt-get install xvfb)
Xvfb :1 &to start an emulated display in the background
export DISPLAY=:1to set it as main display
- Run the bot with
java --module-path /usr/share/openjfx/lib --add-modules javafx.controls -jar BlueBot.jar cmd &
