People need to be able to use alternate clients

    Yep. I want a nice, native macOS and iOS app that doesn't have the store or Nitro bloat. Just me, text and voice chat, my servers channels, members, and maybe a few other things.

    Second to what Caleb said. Screw Electron. I want native apps that have been built from the ground up with full adherence to Apple, Microsoft, and Google's design guidelines and APIs.

    Exactly. I'd really like a nice, native Linux client written in GTK or Qt without the overhead of Electron. It would eliminate the need for things like BetterDiscord

    This would really be useful. While the official client works decently, it also uses up 400 MB of memory while sitting idle, versus (currently-unsupported) alternatives that only use 33 MB in some cases.

    With every developer and their neighbour going toward Electron and Web-based UIs these days (there are several such apps running on my machine right now, taking up about half my memory for no good reason), I think there's a market for lightweight clients and alternate user experiences, especially for those who want to run the app in parallel with their games without taking away precious memory and CPU time from the game.

    Discord is meant for gaming, yeah. It should be light, so that it dosen't steal RAM

    Honestly, calling Discord performant while it's using electron is a joke.

    Electron is a complete and utter joke. While a couple of third party discord clients do exist out there I'm terrified to use them because my account might get disabled (and in fact it actually DID once).

     

    Discord runs like total molasses even on my high end gaming PC with nothing else running and the devs refuse to even take notice of the fact that it's a bloated ugly mess.

    They need to either fix it or let us use alternatives to their crappy first party client

    I actually think that electron itself is perfectly fine. It's discord's code that's a joke.

    Funny that you mention linux performance because you're actually kinda right. On Linux and from what I've used Mac OS, Discord actually runs mostly fine. However on Windows it runs like a dogs breakfast and I seriously have no idea why that's the case. It's ridiculous.

    As for Electron, it really depends. For some programs Electron is fine but I really don't think it should be used for a desktop client for chat software. Although it does in the end come down to discord's code being flat out terrible

    @EZ2ACTux @Codic I have to kind of disagree. I am running Fedora 31 and Discord keeps crashing for me. The speed is just as good as on windows but at some point it just memory leaks itself to death.
