Discord Notifications for NodeBB
Send notifications of new posts and topics via Discord webhook.
It’s like NodeBB Slack plugin, but for Discord. Fancy rich embeds included.

https://discord.com/api/webhooks/<Webhook ID>/<Webhook Token>.
- Fill in Webhook URL field on the plugin settings page.
- Restart NodeBB.

Pull requests are highly welcome and appreciated.
I might miss notifications from GitHub, so if I haven’t replied in a week or so, feel free to ping me.
