Installation

> npm i --save venom-bot

or for Nightly releases:

> npm i --save https://github.com/orkestral/venom/releases/download/nightly/venom-bot-nightly.tgz

Getting started

// Supports ES6
// import { create, Whatsapp } from 'venom-bot';
const venom = require('venom-bot');

venom
  .create()
  .then((client) => start(client))
  .catch((erro) => {
    console.log(erro);
  });

function start(client) {
  client.onMessage((message) => {
    if (message.body === 'Hi' && message.isGroupMsg === false) {
      client
        .sendText(message.from, 'Welcome Venom 🕷')
        .then((result) => {
          console.log('Result: ', result); //return object success
        })
        .catch((erro) => {
          console.error('Error when sending: ', erro); //return object error
        });
    }
  });
}
After executing create() function, venom will create an instance of whatsapp web. If you are not logged in, it will print a QR code in the terminal. Scan it with your phone and you are ready to go!
Venom will remember the session so there is no need to authenticate everytime.
Multiples sessions can be created at the same time by pasing a session name to create() function:
// Init sales whatsapp bot
venom.create('sales').then((salesClient) => {...});

// Init support whatsapp bot
venom.create('support').then((supportClient) => {...});

Optional create parameters

Venom create() method third parameter can have the following optional parameters:

If you are using the Linux server do not forget to pass the args --user-agent Original parameters in browserArgs

const venom = require('venom-bot');

venom
  .create(
    //session
    'sessionName', //Pass the name of the client you want to start the bot
    //catchQR
    (base64Qrimg, asciiQR, attempts, urlCode) => {
      console.log('Number of attempts to read the qrcode: ', attempts);
      console.log('Terminal qrcode: ', asciiQR);
      console.log('base64 image string qrcode: ', base64Qrimg);
      console.log('urlCode (data-ref): ', urlCode);
    },
    // statusFind
    (statusSession, session) => {
      console.log('Status Session: ', statusSession); //return isLogged || notLogged || browserClose || qrReadSuccess || qrReadFail || autocloseCalled || desconnectedMobile || deleteToken || chatsAvailable || deviceNotConnected || serverWssNotConnected || noOpenBrowser
      //Create session wss return "serverClose" case server for close

      disableSpins: true, // Will disable Spinnies animation, useful for containers (docker) for a better log
      disableWelcome: true, // Will disable the welcoming message which appears in the beginning
      updatesLog: true, // Logs info updates automatically in terminal
      autoClose: 60000, // Automatically closes the venom-bot only when scanning the QR code (default 60 seconds, if you want to turn it off, assign 0 or false)
      createPathFileToken: false, //creates a folder when inserting an object in the client's browser, to work it is necessary to pass the parameters in the function create browserSessionToken
    },
    // BrowserSessionToken
    // To receive the client's token use the function await clinet.getSessionTokenBrowser()
    {
      WABrowserId: '"UnXjH....."',
      WASecretBundle:
        '{"key":"+i/nRgWJ....","encKey":"kGdMR5t....","macKey":"+i/nRgW...."}',

    },
    // BrowserInstance
    (browser, waPage) => {
      console.log("Browser PID:", browser.process().pid);
      waPage.screenshot({path: 'screenshot.png'});
    }
  )
  .then((client) => {
    start(client);
  })
  .catch((erro) => {
    console.log(erro);
  });

Callback Status Session

Gets the return if the session is isLogged or notLogged or browserClose or qrReadSuccess or qrReadFail or autocloseCalled or desconnectedMobile or deleteToken or chatsAvailable or deviceNotConnected or serverWssNotConnected or noOpenBrowser or Create session wss return "serverClose" case server for close

Status Condition
isLogged When the user is already logged in to the browser
notLogged When the user is not connected to the browser, it is necessary to scan the QR code through the cell phone in the option WhatsApp Web
browserClose If the browser is closed this parameter is returned
qrReadSuccess If the user is not logged in, the QR code is passed on the terminal a callback is returned. After the correct reading by cell phone this parameter is returned
qrReadFail If the browser stops when the QR code scan is in progress, this parameter is returned
autocloseCalled The browser was closed using the autoClose command
desconnectedMobile Client has desconnected in to mobile
serverClose Client has desconnected in to wss
deleteToken If you pass true within the function client.getSessionTokenBrowser(true)
chatsAvailable When Venom is connected to the chat list
deviceNotConnected Chat not available because the phone is disconnected (Trying to connect to the phone)
serverWssNotConnected The address wss was not found!
noOpenBrowser It was not found in the browser, or some command is missing in args
const venom = require('venom-bot');
venom
  .create(
    'sessionName',
    undefined,
    (statusSession, session) => {
      console.log('Status Session: ', statusSession);
      //return isLogged || notLogged || browserClose || qrReadSuccess || qrReadFail || autocloseCalled || desconnectedMobile || deleteToken || chatsAvailable || deviceNotConnected || serverWssNotConnected || noOpenBrowser
      //Create session wss return "serverClose" case server for close
      console.log('Session name: ', session);
    },
    undefined
  )
  .then((client) => {
    start(client);
  })
  .catch((erro) => {
    console.log(erro);
  });

Exporting QR Code

By default QR code will appear on the terminal. If you need to pass the QR somewhere else heres how:

const fs = require('fs');
const venom = require('venom-bot');

venom
  .create(
    'sessionName',
    (base64Qr, asciiQR, attempts, urlCode) => {
      console.log(asciiQR); // Optional to log the QR in the terminal
      var matches = base64Qr.match(/^data:([A-Za-z-+\/]+);base64,(.+)$/),
        response = {};

      if (matches.length !== 3) {
        return new Error('Invalid input string');
      }
      response.type = matches[1];
      response.data = new Buffer.from(matches[2], 'base64');

      var imageBuffer = response;
      require('fs').writeFile(
        'out.png',
        imageBuffer['data'],
        'binary',
        function (err) {
          if (err != null) {
            console.log(err);
          }
        }
      );
    },
    undefined,
    { logQR: false }
  )
  .then((client) => {
    start(client);
  })
  .catch((erro) => {
    console.log(erro);
  });

Downloading Files

Puppeteer takes care of the file downloading. The decryption is being done as fast as possible (outruns native methods). Supports big files!

import fs = require('fs');
import mime = require('mime-types');

client.onMessage( async (message) => {
  if (message.isMedia === true || message.isMMS === true) {
    const buffer = await client.decryptFile(message);
    // At this point you can do whatever you want with the buffer
    // Most likely you want to write it into a file
    const fileName = `some-file-name.${mime.extension(message.mimetype)}`;
    await fs.writeFile(fileName, buffer, (err) => {
      ...
    });
  }
});

Misc

There are some tricks for a better usage of venom.

Keep session alive:

// function to detect conflits and change status
// Force it to keep the current session
// Possible state values:
// CONFLICT
// CONNECTED
// DEPRECATED_VERSION
// OPENING
// PAIRING
// PROXYBLOCK
// SMB_TOS_BLOCK
// TIMEOUT
// TOS_BLOCK
// UNLAUNCHED
// UNPAIRED
// UNPAIRED_IDLE
client.onStateChange((state) => {
  console.log('State changed: ', state);
  // force whatsapp take over
  if ('CONFLICT'.includes(state)) client.useHere();
  // detect disconnect on whatsapp
  if ('UNPAIRED'.includes(state)) console.log('logout');
});

// DISCONNECTED
// SYNCING
// RESUMING
// CONNECTED
let time = 0;
client.onStreamChange((state) => {
  console.log('State Connection Stream: ' + state);
  clearTimeout(time);
  if (state === 'DISCONNECTED' || state === 'SYNCING') {
    time = setTimeout(() => {
      client.close();
    }, 80000);
  }
});

// function to detect incoming call
client.onIncomingCall(async (call) => {
  console.log(call);
  client.sendText(call.peerJid, "Sorry, I still can't answer calls");
});

Closing (saving) sessions

Close the session properly to ensure the session is saved for the next time you log in (So it won't ask for QR scan again). So instead of CTRL+C,

// Catch ctrl+C
process.on('SIGINT', function() {
  client.close();
});

// Try-catch close
try {
   ...
} catch (error) {
   client.close();
}

Auto closing unsynced sessions

The auto close is enabled by default and the timeout is set to 60 sec. Receives the time in milliseconds to countdown until paired.
