Receive friend requests/Adding friends


Recommended Posts


How can I add a friend if a friend request is received?

I tried using addFriend(steamID), here's the code, am I doing something wrong?

var SteamUser = require('steam-user');
var client = new SteamUser();

client.on("friend", function (steamID) {

Thanks for the help!

I got it to work by using on('friendRelationship')

If I'm not wrong, it should be client.on('friendRelationship'), function(parameters) { ... });

Also, a question, these #paramaters, can be used such as client.on('parameter') etc...?

And how could I get the the user's steam name? (not 64bit ID).


Thank you

The names are the player_name property in each object in the array provided in the callback.


I am new into the callback things and not a professional :D

I got this to work somehow:


var botName;


setInterval(function () {

    if (botName == undefined) {

        client.getPersonas([client.steamID], function (persona) {

            botName = persona[client.steamID].player_name;



}, 5000);


Is it the right usage? Or is there a better way?
