Although Haruka can be installed via npm i discord-haruka, it’s not recommended, as Haruka isn’t a module. Instead, go to the GitHub repo and get a copy of Haruka’s latest release. In the root directory, open the file called example-config.json. The most important bits are as follows.:

  "version": "<Version number>",
  "dev": false,
  "token": "<https://discordapp.com/developers/applications/me>",
  "kanji-alive-api-key": "<https://market.mashape.com/KanjiAlive/learn-to-read-and-write-japanese-kanji>",
  "ops": [

Replace each thing in <angle brackets> with its respective value. token is your bot’s login token, which can be found in your Discord apps. kanji-alive-api-key is your X-Mashape-Key header used for KanjiAlive, the API used to get Kanji data. If you don't wish to use the Kanji function, rename dist/functions/kanji.js to dist/functions/_kanji.js. ops is an array of user IDs; a user ID represents a user on Discord, and these are used to determine who can run the -h restart command, which kills the Haruka process.

Finally, rename example-config.json to config.json, run npm install to install Haruka’s dependencies, and run her locally by using npm start.


First of all, get to know how Haruka works. Haruka is made of several component parts, and understanding how they work will ease development. Install Haruka as mentioned above, create a fork with your changes, and issue a Pull Request. Haruka’s written in CoffeeScript, you can build her by running coffee -o dist/ -cw src/ in the root directory with CoffeeScript installed. It’s also recommended you have a CoffeeScript linter installed.
