Kord is still in an experimental stage, as such we can't guarantee API stability between releases. While we'd love for you to try out our library, we don't recommend you use this in production just yet.

If you have any feedback, we'd love to hear it, hit us up on discord or write up an issue if you have any suggestions!

What is Kord?

Kord is a coroutine-based, modularized implementation of the Discord API, written 100% in Kotlin.

Why use Kord

Kord was created as an answer to the frustrations of writing Discord bots with other JVM libraries, which either use thread-blocking code or verbose and scope restrictive reactive systems. We believe an API written from the ground up in Kotlin with coroutines can give you the best of both worlds: The conciseness of imperative code with the concurrency of reactive code.

Aside from coroutines, we also wanted to give the user full access to lower level APIs. Sometimes you have to do some unconventional things, and we want to allow you to do those in a safe and supported way.

Status of Kord

Right now, Kord should provide a full mapping of the non-voice API on Kotlin/JVM and Kotlin/JS and an experimental mapping of the Voice API on Kotlin/JVM



Module Docs Artifact JVM JS Native
common common kord-common
rest rest kord-rest
gateway gateway kord-gateway
core core kord-core
voice voice kord-voice
core-voice core-voice kord-core-voice

These artifacts only supports Gradle Version 5.3 or higher, for older Gradle versions and Maven please append -jvm
For Native Support please see #69
For Voice JS please see #69


Replace {version} with the latest version number on maven central.

For Snapshots replace {version} with {branch}-SNAPSHOT

e.g: feature-mpp-SNAPSHOT for the branch feature/mpp

For Snapshots for the branch main replace {version} with {nextPlannedVersion}-SNAPSHOT (see nextPlannedVersion in gradle.properties)

Will you support kotlin multi-platform

Currently we're supporting both Kotlin/JVM and Kotlin/JS for the majority of our API, for more information check Modules and #69

When will you document your code?
