Discord API library for Deno

Discordeno follows Semantic Versioning

Discord Lint Test


  • Secure & stable: Discordeno is actively maintained to ensure great performance and convenience. Moreover, it internally checks all missing permissions before forwarding a request to the Discord API so that the client does not get globally-banned by Discord.
  • Simple, Efficient, & Lightweight: Discordeno is simplistic, easy-to-use, versatile while being efficient and lightweight. Follows Convention Over Configuration design paradigm ― prefers defaults options or values that are recommended by Discord or the best configuration for the majority of the users.
  • Functional API: Functional API ensures an overall concise yet performant code while removing the difficulties of extending built-in classes and inheritance.

Getting Started

Minimal Example

Here is a minimal example to get started with:

import { startBot } from "";

  token: "BOT_TOKEN",
  intents: ["Guilds", "GuildMessages"],
  eventHandlers: {
    ready() {
      console.log("Successfully connected to gateway");
    messageCreate(message) {
      // Process the message with your command handler here


Note to developers: don’t worry a lot of developers start out programming a Discord bot as their first project (I did 😉) and it is not so easy to do so. Discordeno is designed and built considering all the issues that I and a lot of developers had when I first started out coding Discord bots with existing libraries.
