A Lavalink wrapper for Discord.Net!

NuGet Pre Release

Getting Started

  • Follow these instructions to setup Lavalink.
  • Once Lavalink is up and running follow the code example below to setup Sharplink.
DiscordSocketClient client = new DiscordSocketClient();
LavalinkManager lavalinkManager = new LavalinkManager(client, new LavalinkManagerConfig
    RESTHost = "localhost",
    RESTPort = 2333,
    WebSocketHost = "localhost",
    WebSocketPort = 80,
    TotalShards = 1 


You don't have to pass a LavalinkManagerConfig since Sharplink uses the default config.

Set TotalShards to the total amount of shards your bot uses. If you don't understand what TotalShards is you are probably not sharding your bot and should set this value to 1.

Use only a single instance of LavaLinkManager. If possible add LavalinkManager to your DI (Dependency Injection).

Once a LavalinkManager is set up it will need to be started. It is recommended you put this in the ready event.

client.Ready += async () =>
    await lavalinkManager.StartAsync();

From there you can connect to audio channels, play music, and do whatever else you wish to do. Here is an example to connect and play music on a voice channel.

// Get LavalinkPlayer for our Guild and if it's null then join a voice channel.
LavalinkPlayer player = lavalinkManager.GetPlayer(GUILD_ID) ?? await lavalinkManager.JoinAsync(VOICE_CHANNEL);

// Now that we have a player we can go ahead and grab a track and play it
LoadTracksResponse response = await lavalinkManager.GetTracksAsync("IDENTIFIER");
// Gets the first track from the response
LavalinkTrack = response.Tracks.First();
await player.PlayAsync(track);

Notes: To get a track from Youtube use GetTracksAsync($"ytsearch:Query"). To get a track from SoundCloud use GetTracksAsync($"scsearch:Query").
