👶 Basic Usage

index.js (CommonJS)

// Import the discord.js Client and GatewayIntentBits
const { Client, GatewayIntentBits } = require('discord.js');

// Import Sern namespace
const { Sern } = require('@sern/handler');

// Our configuration file
const { defaultPrefix, token } = require('./config.json');

const client = new Client({
intents: [
export const useContainer = Sern.makeDependencies({
build: root => root
.add({ '@sern/client': single(client) })
.add({ '@sern/logger': single(new DefaultLogging()) })

//View docs for all options
defaultPrefix: '!', // removing defaultPrefix will shut down text commands
commands: 'src/commands',
// events: 'src/events' (optional),
containerConfig : {
get: useContainer


ping.js (CommonJS)

const { CommandType, commandModule } = require('@sern/handler');

exports.default = commandModule({
name: 'ping',
description: 'A ping pong command',
type: CommandType.Slash,
execute(ctx) {
