Music Bot for Discord How to set up a Discord music bot (Updated December 2021)

Setting up a music bot isn't easy since it requires lots of different things to be installed. In this guide I will list all the requirements and provide you with the code you need. Make sure you follow all the steps :)

Let's start!

Create a bot

First we need to create the bot, go here and make sure you're logged in. Click on New Application and give your bot a name.
Go to the "Bot" tab on the left and click Add Bot under the "BUILD-A-BOT" tab. Copy the token and save it because we will need it for later.
Copy the Application ID under the "General Information" tab and save it for later as well.

Now click on the "OAuth2" tab and then on "URL Generator". Under "Scopes", check "bot" and on "applications.commands". Under "Bot Permissions", check "Administrator". Now copy the URL under "Generated URL" and paste it into your browser in order to invite your newly created bot to your Discord server!

Code Editor

A code editor let's us write and modify code. The code editor I use and recommend is Visual Studio Code.
You can also use other great editors like Sublime Text and Atom.

Node.js and npm

Node.js is a JavaScript runtime. It basically lets us run JavaScript code on our machine. We also use its package ecosystem, npm, which we will discuss next.
Download Node.js from its official website (LTS or latest).
To check if you installed it correctly, open your terminal(cmd or bash depending on which OS you are using), and run node -v, you should get a number back. If you're struggling with installing Node, check out this guide.
nom comes installed with Node.js, we will use npm later to install dependencies.

Git

Git is an open source version control system. It helps developers to manage projects by keeping track of the entire history of a project and makes it easy to add features without worrying about breaking the entire codebase. We will use Git in order to obtain code for our bot from GitHub. GitHub is a hosting service for Git repositories. You can learn more about Git and Github from this superb article.

If you're on Windows, install Git from here. For macOS users, install Xcode and then hit git --version, it'll prompt you to install it. If you're using Linux based OS, hit sudo dnf install git-all or sudo apt install git-all for debian.

Java 13

Download Java 13 from here, make sure you download the correct one for your Operating System.

Cloning the repository

Go to your terminal(cmd, git bash or bash), you probably see on the left that you are now in your user folder(C:\Users/"username"). Enter cd Desktop to go to your Desktop. Then 'git clone https://github.com/galnir/Master-Bot'. You are cloning(copying) the repository from GitHub so you can use its code.

Getting Lavalink

Download the latest Lavalink jar file from here (under assets). Place the jar file in the root directory of the project (same folder as index.js and package.json)

Application.yml

Create a file named application.yml in the same folder you placed the jar file from before. Copy everything from this example to your application.yml

Tokens

For everything to function we need the following tokens:

  • The bots discord ID (saved from the first section)
  • The bots token (saved from the first section)
  • A Spotify client ID
  • A Spotify client secret

In order to generate the last 2 tokens you need to create a Spotify account and login to the dev dashboard
After you login, simply create an app and copy the client ID and secret.

Config.json

In the root directory of the project create a file named config.json and have it look like this:

{
  "client_id": "the-bots-discord-id",
  "token": "Your-Bot-Token",
  "lava_host": "0.0.0.0",
  "lava_pass": "youshallnotpass",
  "spotify_client_id": "get-it-from-spotify-dev",
  "spotify_client_secret": "get-it-from-spotify-dev"
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Put every token you generated in its place surrounded by quotes

Running the bot

Open a terminal in the root directory of the project and run java -jar Lavalink.jar.
Now open another terminal instance in the same folder and run node index.js

After running both commands you should be able to run music commands using the new Slash feature! Simply type / in a text channel and you should see the command list!

If you have any questions/issues you can comment here or open an issue in the repo. Also don't forget to leave a star in the repo if you found it helpful :)

Can you help me?

(node:9104) UnhandledPromiseRejectionWarning: Unhandled promise rejection. This error originated either by throwing inside of an async function without a catch block, or by rejecting a promise which was not handled with .catch(). To terminate the node process on unhandled promise rejection, use the CLI flag --unhandled-rejections=strict (see nodejs.org/api/cli.html#cli_unhand...). (rejection id: 1)

Thats the error i get. Tried some trouble shooting, but didnt work. Also i dont hear any sound when my bot joins the channel... Is both the same problem or whats happening here? Pls help me, thanks.

According to stackoverflow it might be due to c++ build tools not being installed.

I setup my config file with the necessary IDs, tokens, and keys. I spent 3 hours trying to set this up, and what, I'm missing ONE GODDAMN FILE?! Thanks for the help, OP.

If you have python 2.7 and everything that is required installed, the problem is probably about not running the terminal as admin or sudo(if you're using linux based OS).
Try to open the cmd(if windows) as admin, or run "sudo npm i node-opus" if on linux OS
