Using the Discord RPC sample bundle

The Discord Rich Presence example bundle in samples/discord-rpc demonstrates the ability to access a locally running discord client. Here is a guide to how to get it working.


You will need a working nodecg-io installation. If you have non yet take a look at installation guide. You may need to install this bundle, so take a look at the “Try an included sample”-Guide. It will also tell you how to log in and how to use the GUI.

You also need:

  • A discord application with permissions indentify and rpc


If you don't have an application yet, you can create one here

Configure the Discord RPC sample bundle

  1. In NodeCG, create a new discord-rpc service instance.
  2. Enter the clientId and clientSecret for the service:

        "clientId": "your client id",
        "clientSecret": "your client secret"

    After entering it, click save.

  3. Set the sample's (discord-rpc) dependency to be the newly created service instance (of type discord-rpc).

  4. Check the NodeCG logs:

    You should see an error or a success message displaying your discord username.
