Installation

Prerequisites

  1. git - https://git-scm.com/downloads
  2. node and npm (v10.0.0 or higher) - https://nodejs.org
  3. Discord Canary (support for Stable and PTB release channels are no longer offered!)

Installation

Please ensure that you’ve installed ‘Git’ and ‘Node’ and are using ‘Discord Canary’ before proceeding through these steps.

  1. Open a command prompt / terminal of your choice (e.g. CMD if you’re on Windows, or Terminal if you’re using Linux/macOS). (Do NOT Run as an Administrator)
  2. In chronological order, type each of these commands using the command prompt / terminal opened in Step 1:
    1. git clone https://github.com/powercord-org/powercord
    2. cd powercord
    3. npm i
    4. npm run plug (Side note: if you're on Linux, you need root perms for this command!)
    5. Completely kill your Discord Client (right-click Discord in the System Tray -> “Quit DiscordCanary”)
    6. Start Discord back up and Powercord should be injected!

Uninstallation

  1. Open a command prompt / terminal of your choice.
  2. Type npm run unplug. (Side note: if you're on Linux, you need root perms for this command!)
  3. Completely kill your Discord Client (right-click Discord in the System Tray -> “Quit DiscordCanary”)

IMPORTANT: Make sure to do this BEFORE deleting Powercord files, else you'll end up with a corrupted Discord installation!
