Manual Installation


For normal users, installing via the installers makes the most sense. However when wanting to either develop BetterDiscord, or when the installers do not work, this option can be used.

Prerequisites: Git, Node.js 12.x+ and the package manager npm.

  1. Clone this repository git clone
  2. Install dependencies with npm install
  3. Build both the Injector and Renderer bundles with npm run build this will create a injector.js, preload.js, and renderer.js in the dist folder.
  4. Run the inject script to inject the local files into your Discord client (npm run inject). Alternately install it to non-stable using npm run inject canary.

What is this?

This is a client modification for Discord. It allows you to add plugins and themes to your client. Plugins can add functionality and useful features. Themes can completely change the look and feel of Discord.

BD has some other built-in features such as Emotes from Twitch, FFZ, and BBTV, as well as an in-client server browser.

Where can I get plugins and themes?

In our support servers we have channels with lists of official plugins and themes. Please note we do not have an official listing on a website and are not affiliated with any of those websites. However BetterDiscordLibrary is generally trustworthy.

Support Servers?

There are two: The main server, and the backup.

How to add custom Emojis

Adding custom emojis is easy, but you need to have the manage emoji permission or are the server owner.

How to check my permission?

Well if you’re clear about the roles in the server, you can just send a message that can click your name to know your roles. If you don’t know the permissions, you can click the arrow nearby the server’s name. If you can’t find Server Settings, you don’t have the manage emoji permission.

Have the permission.

Requirements for custom emojis

  • Up to 50 custom emojis.
  • Up to 50 animated emojis.
  • Emoji names must be at least 2 characters long ( can only contain alphanumeric characters and underscores).
  • The emoji file size must be smaller than 256kb.
  • For optimal emoji resolution, you can upload the size up to 128×128 pixels, Discord will resize it to 32×32.
