Easily Add Advanced Features to Your Discord Bot Without Coding (Discord.js + Robo.js)

Got a Discord Bot you'd like to enhance with advanced features? Robo.js is a powerful framework compatible with Discord.js with a plugin system so powerful, you can add new features to your bot without writing a single line of code. If you're a beginner, you can add powerful features as you learn how to code the rest of it!

Creating a New Discord Bot

If you haven't already created a Discord Bot, you can do so by running the following command in your terminal:

npx create-robo <projectName> -k bot

This will spawn a new Robo.js project ready to use as a Discord Bot. We call these Robos.

Adding Features

Once you have your Discord Bot set up, you can add new features using Robo Plugins. These plugins integrate seamlessly with your Robo to provide new functionality as if you had written the code yourself. For example, you can add AI chatbot capabilities, moderation tools, maintenance mode, economy systems, and more.

Run this in your terminal, replacing Β with the name of the plugin you want to install (e.g. @robojs/ai):

npx robo add <package>

This will install the package and register it in your Robo's configuration. To install many at once:

npx robo add @robojs/ai @robojs/moderation @robojs/server

You can also create a new Robo project with plugins pre-installed:

npx create-robo <projectName> --plugins @robojs/ai @robojs/moderation

Existing Bots

If you have an existing Discord.js Bot and want to add new features, you'll need to migrate your bot to Robo.js. This process is straightforward and involves moving your existing code into the Robo File Structure.

Once your bot is migrated, you can add new features using Robo Plugins as described above.

Where to Find Plugins

You can find a list of available plugins in the Robo Plugin Directory. Browse through the directory to find plugins that suit your needs and add them to your bot. You can also create your own plugins and share them with the community.
