There's times when I'm using a text-terminal only environment and have no desktop environment at all. ( And therefore no GUI, no way to launch Discord. ) During these times, I'd like to still be able to keep up conversing with my friends. I also would like a client with a smaller memory footprint. Would you be willing to greenlight and support a text only Discord client? I can help develop it if need be. It'd be nice to have this as an official client for communicating on the Discord network since most of my friends aren't willing to use multiple chat services at once or jump to Jabber or IRC. It would also help me to be able to monitor my servers during times when I do not have full capacity to use Discord's normal client or the browser mode. Personally I'd also use this just for personal usage. Images could be displayed as links in the text client. Naturally voice and video call wouldn't be supported, but I wouldn't need or want it in these circumstances. As it stands, I have to resort to a relay bot, which I consider to be an inelegant solution. The amount of overhead for such a client should be minimal and if you allowed custom clients, a plethora would already exist.
