Discord Webhook sending

version npm Total alerts Language grade: JavaScript

Installation

npm install discord-webhook-node or yarn add discord-webhook-node

Examples

Basic use

const { Webhook } = require('discord-webhook-node');
const hook = new Webhook("YOUR WEBHOOK URL");
 
const IMAGE_URL = 'https://homepages.cae.wisc.edu/~ece533/images/airplane.png';
hook.setUsername('Discord Webhook Node Name');
hook.setAvatar(IMAGE_URL);
 
hook.send("Hello there!");

Custom embeds

const { Webhook, MessageBuilder } = require('discord-webhook-node');
const hook = new Webhook("YOUR WEBHOOK URL");
 
const embed = new MessageBuilder()
.setTitle('My title here')
.setAuthor('Author here', 'https://cdn.discordapp.com/embed/avatars/0.png', 'https://www.google.com')
.setURL('https://www.google.com')
.addField('First field', 'this is inline', true)
.addField('Second field', 'this is not inline')
.setColor('#00b0f4')
.setThumbnail('https://cdn.discordapp.com/embed/avatars/0.png')
.setDescription('Oh look a description :)')
.setImage('https://cdn.discordapp.com/embed/avatars/0.png')
.setFooter('Hey its a footer', 'https://cdn.discordapp.com/embed/avatars/0.png')
.setTimestamp();
 
hook.send(embed);

Keep in mind that the custom embed method setColor takes in a decimal color/a hex color (pure black and white hex colors will be innacurate). You can convert hex colors to decimal using this website here: https://convertingcolors.com

const { Webhook } = require('discord-webhook-node');
const hook = new Webhook('YOUR WEBHOOK URL');
 
hook.sendFile('../yourfilename.png');

Preset messages

const { Webhook } = require('discord-webhook-node');
const hook = new Webhook('YOUR WEBHOOK URL');
 
//Sends an information message
hook.info('**Information hook**', 'Information field title here', 'Information field value here');
 
//Sends a success message
hook.success('**Success hook**', 'Success field title here', 'Success field value here');
 
//Sends an warning message
hook.warning('**Warning hook**', 'Warning field title here', 'Warning field value here');
 
//Sends an error message
hook.error('**Error hook**', 'Error field title here', 'Error field value here');

Custom settings

const { Webhook } = require('discord-webhook-node');
const hook = new Webhook({
    url: "YOUR WEBHOOK URL",
    //If throwErrors is set to false, no errors will be thrown if there is an error sending
    throwErrors: false,
    //retryOnLimit gives you the option to not attempt to send the message again if rate limited
    retryOnLimit: false
});
 
hook.setUsername('Username'); //Overrides the default webhook username
hook.setAvatar('YOUR_AVATAR_URL'); //Overrides the default webhook avatar

Notes

discord-webhook-node is a promise based library, which means you can use .catch, .then, and await, although if successful will not return any values. For example:

const { Webhook } = require('discord-webhook-node');
const hook = new Webhook("YOUR WEBHOOK URL");
 
hook.send("Hello there!")
.then(() => console.log('Sent webhook successfully!'))
.catch(err => console.log(err.message));

or using async:

const { Webhook } = require('discord-webhook-node');
const hook = new Webhook("YOUR WEBHOOK URL");
 
(async () => {
    try {
        await hook.send('Hello there!');
        console.log('Successfully sent webhook!');
    }
    catch(e){
        console.log(e.message);
    };
})();

By default, it will handle Discord's rate limiting, and if there is an error sending the message (other than rate limiting), an error will be thrown. You can change these options with the custom settings options below.
