I understand ... you can put them into folder together with your script, but question is how to load them (as we don't use any 3rd party scripts and we don't use require) and i can help with that if you need ... but i need any sample library you need to use in your script.

Alright, this is the folder that was created with the libraries and their prerequisites.

These were installed into the project using node/NPM.

Hmm ... implement node.js core will not be easy ... it is using so much methods from native code of Node :-/.

I will appreciate anything you can do, but if necessary, I will figure out how to interface with Discord directly, since it is open-source, and I probably only need certain aspects of the API.

From the looks of it you are going for a native implementation, but in case you still use the workaround via .net you might want to have a look at the github page for MediaMonkey.Net again. I just pushed several updates to the dev branch , which is pretty much a complete rewrite of the original plugin which and now uses an asynchronous implementation of most calls and offers event based updates to avoid having to constantly poll mediamonkey for updates.

Let me know when you get this working, I have been looking everywhere for a plugin for MM and Discord.

So, I finally revisited this, and discovered a Node app called Browserify that seems to do just about everything I would have needed, except that the method I need to use to actually broadcast RPC changes uses a module that isn't available through Browserify (Node's net module). I'm in contact with the author of the JS framework for Discord's RPC, as well as on the Browserify IRC channel, to see if there's a way around that, but the only other option I could see is if you were to use Electron, which bridges Node and Chromium in one platform (which, though I don't know for sure as I've never transferred a strictly Chromium project to Electron, would probably be ridiculous to do for just one script).

EDIT: to be more specific, Node's net module is TCP connections, which is only experimentally available in Chrome, and I don't know if that is also available in chromium.
