WidgetBot Contributions welcome


WidgetBot is a pixel-perfect open-source Discord chat widget for your website. It is distributed and developed under the GNU General Public License v3 (GPL-3) Open Source License.



The official Widgetbot team uses Visual Studio Code for developing Widgetbot.

This fork uses the IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate which is the paid version. The free one, Community Edition, doesn't support web development. You also have to install the NodeJS plugin.

You can use either, or something else.

Building Embed & Server

Before you are able to build anything make sure you have yarn installed:

npm install -g yarn

If you're a macOS or Linux user, or if you're on Windows with the Git shell installed, you can build all packages at once like this:

yarn build

If you want to build them manually or use Windows without Git shell:

yarn workspace @widgetbot/embed-api build
yarn workspace @widgetbot/react-embed build
yarn workspace @widgetbot/html-embed build  # you can skip this one if you don't need it
yarn workspace embed build
yarn workspace @widgetbot/crate build
yarn workspace server build

Then run the server:

yarn workspace server start
