A CLI-based client for Discord inspired by SDF's commode.


  1. All CLI/TUI Discord clients are outdated/unmaintained or have flaws.
  2. I've been spending more time in commode on SDF and have been accustomed to the experience.


  1. pnpm i
  2. node src/index.js <token>

Your token will be then stored in .comcordrc after the first launch.

User Accounts

User accounts are partially supported via allowUserAccounts=true in your .comcordrc. This is use at your own risk, despite spoofing the official client. I am not responsible for any banned accounts.

Guild members not populating

This is due to most libraries not implementing Lazy Guilds, as bots do not need lazy guilds to function.

If you are willing to implement Lazy Guilds based off of unofficial documentation and my already existing horrible hacks to make user accounts work in the first place, feel free to send a PR (on GitLab, GitHub repo is a read only mirror).

Bot Accounts (prefered)

You MUST grant your bot all Privileged Gateway Intents.

Design Decisions

  • Node.js was chosen currently due to familiarity.
  • Dysnomia was chosen due to familiarity and the nature of everything not being abstracted out to 200 different classes unlike discord.js.
  • "Jank" by design. While I don't expect anyone to actually use comcord on serial terminals or teletypes other than for meme factor, the option is still there.
