Class: SapphireClient<Ready>

The base {@link Client} extension that makes Sapphire work. When building a Discord bot with the framework, the developer must either use this class, or extend it.

Sapphire also automatically detects the folders to scan for pieces, please read StoreRegistry.registerPath for reference. This method is called at the start of the SapphireClient.login method.

see SapphireClientOptions for all options available to the Sapphire Client. You can also provide all of discord.js' ClientOptions

since 1.0.0

example

const client = new SapphireClient({
presence: {
activity: {
name: 'for commands!',
type: 'LISTENING'
}
}
});

client.login(process.env.DISCORD_TOKEN)
.catch(console.error);

example

// Automatically scan from a specific directory, e.g. the main
// file is at `/home/me/bot/index.js` and all your pieces are at
// `/home/me/bot/pieces` (e.g. `/home/me/bot/pieces/commands/MyCommand.js`):
const client = new SapphireClient({
baseUserDirectory: join(__dirname, 'pieces'),
// More options...
});

example

// Opt-out automatic scanning:
const client = new SapphireClient({
baseUserDirectory: null,
// More options...
});

fetchPrefix

β€’ fetchPrefix: SapphirePrefixHook

The method to be overriden by the developer.

since 1.0.0

returns A string for a single prefix, an array of strings for matching multiple, or null for no match (mention prefix only).

example

// Return always the same prefix (unconfigurable):
client.fetchPrefix = () => '!';

example

// Retrieving the prefix from a SQL database:
client.fetchPrefix = async (message) => {
// note: driver is something generic and depends on how you connect to your database
const guild = await driver.getOne('SELECT prefix FROM public.guild WHERE id = $1', [message.guild.id]);

Returns a copy of the array of listeners for the event named eventName, including any wrappers (such as those created by .once()).

const emitter = new EventEmitter();
emitter.once('log', () => console.log('log once'));

// Returns a new Array with a function `onceWrapper` which has a property
// `listener` which contains the original listener bound above
const listeners = emitter.rawListeners('log');
const logFnWrapper = listeners[0];

// Logs "log once" to the console and does not unbind the `once` event
logFnWrapper.listener();

// Logs "log once" to the console and removes the listener
logFnWrapper();

Parameters

NameType
event?Exclude<S, keyof ClientEvents>

Returns

SapphireClient<Ready>

Inherited from

Client.removeAllListeners

Defined in

node_modules/discord.js/typings/index.d.ts:523


removeListener

β–Έ removeListener(eventName, listener): SapphireClient<Ready>

Removes the specified listener from the listener array for the event namedeventName.

const callback = (stream) => {
console.log('someone connected!');
};
server.on('connection', callback);
// ...
server.removeListener('connection', callback);

removeListener() will remove, at most, one instance of a listener from the listener array. If any single listener has been added multiple times to the listener array for the specified eventName, then removeListener() must be called multiple times to remove each instance.

Once an event is emitted, all listeners attached to it at the time of emitting are called in order. This implies that anyremoveListener() or removeAllListeners() calls after emitting andbefore the last listener finishes execution will not remove them fromemit() in progress. Subsequent events behave as expected.

const myEmitter = new MyEmitter();

const callbackA = () => {
console.log('A');
myEmitter.removeListener('event', callbackB);
};

const callbackB = () => {
console.log('B');
};

myEmitter.on('event', callbackA);

myEmitter.on('event', callbackB);

// callbackA removes listener callbackB but it will still be called.
// Internal listener array at time of emit [callbackA, callbackB]
myEmitter.emit('event');
// Prints:
// A
// B

// callbackB is now removed.
// Internal listener array [callbackA]
myEmitter.emit('event');
// Prints:
// A

Because listeners are managed using an internal array, calling this will change the position indices of any listener registered after the listener being removed. This will not impact the order in which listeners are called, but it means that any copies of the listener array as returned by the emitter.listeners() method will need to be recreated.

When a single function has been added as a handler multiple times for a single event (as in the example below), removeListener() will remove the most recently added instance. In the example the once('ping')listener is removed:

const ee = new EventEmitter();

function pong() {
console.log('pong');
}

ee.on('ping', pong);
ee.once('ping', pong);
ee.removeListener('ping', pong);

ee.emit('ping');
ee.emit('ping');

Returns a reference to the EventEmitter, so that calls can be chained.

Inherited from

Client.removeListener

Defined in

node_modules/@types/node/events.d.ts:439


setMaxListeners

β–Έ setMaxListeners(n): SapphireClient<Ready>

By default EventEmitters will print a warning if more than 10 listeners are added for a particular event. This is a useful default that helps finding memory leaks. The emitter.setMaxListeners() method allows the limit to be modified for this specific EventEmitter instance. The value can be set toInfinity (or 0) to indicate an unlimited number of listeners.

Returns a reference to the EventEmitter, so that calls can be chained.

getEventListeners

β–Έ Static getEventListeners(emitter, name): Function[]

Returns a copy of the array of listeners for the event named eventName.

For EventEmitters this behaves exactly the same as calling .listeners on the emitter.

For EventTargets this is the only way to get the event listeners for the event target. This is useful for debugging and diagnostic purposes.

const { getEventListeners, EventEmitter } = require('events');

{
const ee = new EventEmitter();
const listener = () => console.log('Events are fun');
ee.on('foo', listener);
getEventListeners(ee, 'foo'); // [listener]
}
{
const et = new EventTarget();
const listener = () => console.log('Events are fun');
et.addEventListener('foo', listener);
getEventListeners(et, 'foo'); // [listener]
}

since v15.2.0

Parameters

NameType
emitterEventEmitter | DOMEventTarget
namestring | symbol

Returns

Function[]

Inherited from

Client.getEventListeners

Defined in

node_modules/@types/node/events.d.ts:262


listenerCount

β–Έ Static listenerCount(emitter, eventName): number

A class method that returns the number of listeners for the given eventNameregistered on the given emitter.

const { EventEmitter, listenerCount } = require('events');
const myEmitter = new EventEmitter();
myEmitter.on('event', () => {});
myEmitter.on('event', () => {});
console.log(listenerCount(myEmitter, 'event'));
// Prints: 2

since v0.9.12

deprecated Since v3.2.0 - Use listenerCount instead.

Parameters

NameTypeDescription
emitterEventEmitterThe emitter to query
eventNamestring | symbolThe event name

Returns

number

Inherited from

Client.listenerCount

Defined in

node_modules/@types/node/events.d.ts:234


on

β–Έ Static on(emitter, eventName, options?): AsyncIterableIterator<any>

const { on, EventEmitter } = require('events');

(async () => {
const ee = new EventEmitter();

// Emit later on
process.nextTick(() => {
ee.emit('foo', 'bar');
ee.emit('foo', 42);
});

for await (const event of on(ee, 'foo')) {
// The execution of this inner block is synchronous and it
// processes one event at a time (even with await). Do not use
// if concurrent execution is required.
console.log(event); // prints ['bar'] [42]
}
// Unreachable here
})();

Returns an AsyncIterator that iterates eventName events. It will throw if the EventEmitter emits 'error'. It removes all listeners when exiting the loop. The value returned by each iteration is an array composed of the emitted event arguments.

An AbortSignal can be used to cancel waiting on events:

const { on, EventEmitter } = require('events');
const ac = new AbortController();

(async () => {
const ee = new EventEmitter();

// Emit later on
process.nextTick(() => {
ee.emit('foo', 'bar');
ee.emit('foo', 42);
});

for await (const event of on(ee, 'foo', { signal: ac.signal })) {
// The execution of this inner block is synchronous and it
// processes one event at a time (even with await). Do not use
// if concurrent execution is required.
console.log(event); // prints ['bar'] [42]
}
// Unreachable here
})();

process.nextTick(() => ac.abort());

since v13.6.0, v12.16.0

Parameters

NameTypeDescription
emitterEventEmitter-
eventNamestringThe name of the event being listened for

Returns

AsyncIterableIterator<any>

that iterates eventName events emitted by the emitter

Inherited from

Client.on

Defined in

node_modules/@types/node/events.d.ts:217


once

β–Έ Static once(emitter, eventName, options?): Promise<any[]>

Creates a Promise that is fulfilled when the EventEmitter emits the given event or that is rejected if the EventEmitter emits 'error' while waiting. The Promise will resolve with an array of all the arguments emitted to the given event.

This method is intentionally generic and works with the web platform EventTarget interface, which has no special'error' event semantics and does not listen to the 'error' event.

const { once, EventEmitter } = require('events');

async function run() {
const ee = new EventEmitter();

process.nextTick(() => {
ee.emit('myevent', 42);
});

const [value] = await once(ee, 'myevent');
console.log(value);

const err = new Error('kaboom');
process.nextTick(() => {
ee.emit('error', err);
});

try {
await once(ee, 'myevent');
} catch (err) {
console.log('error happened', err);
}
}

run();

The special handling of the 'error' event is only used when events.once()is used to wait for another event. If events.once() is used to wait for the 'error' event itself, then it is treated as any other kind of event without special handling:

const { EventEmitter, once } = require('events');

const ee = new EventEmitter();

once(ee, 'error')
.then(([err]) => console.log('ok', err.message))
.catch((err) => console.log('error', err.message));

ee.emit('error', new Error('boom'));

// Prints: ok boom

An AbortSignal can be used to cancel waiting for the event:

const { EventEmitter, once } = require('events');

const ee = new EventEmitter();
const ac = new AbortController();

async function foo(emitter, event, signal) {
try {
await once(emitter, event, { signal });
console.log('event emitted!');
} catch (error) {
if (error.name === 'AbortError') {
console.error('Waiting for the event was canceled!');
} else {
console.error('There was an error', error.message);
}
}
}

foo(ee, 'foo', ac.signal);
ac.abort(); // Abort waiting for the event
ee.emit('foo'); // Prints: Waiting for the event was canceled!
