Make Discord Open Source



  • Hyperclaw79

    Discord is actually a company product so it's pointless to make it open source. I personally would hate to see a lower quality clone of Discord which would be made possible by open sourcing discord.

    Personally, i think that a version of discord without the store but its open source would be awesome!

    Personally, I disagree. We don't need to see Discord App'd code, others just want too,

    As long as Discord keeps going in this direction I see no need for it to be open-source, also the fact that it used their servers would definitely make this a no-go.

    Making it skinnable might be a happy medium.

    Couldn't agree more CodenameCookie

    Make the client open source and moddable, keep the servers closed source, maybe leave some parts of the client closed like the store and such.

    Making the client open source means the community can really push the limits to what discord can do. It wouldn't hurt Discord, it would make it better overall and allow for quicker bug fixes and upgrades.

    werethless12 superficially that sounds great. community development has its perks, however, this will also enable reverse engineering to be much easier, and could go catastrophic.

  • Shmalle

    Totally disagree, how about keeping the iconic and same design?

  • ForTombstone

    To be honest, I can understand why they keep their codes closed source. However, it is great if it can actually be modded, although it's not that related to this post.

    An extension system/themes (werethless12, thanks for this idea) and a store similar to the Chrome Web Store could be a good compromise...
