    I'm going to second this, some kind of terminal or command line application would be great.

    I would love to see this implemented as well! Something like a TUI for discord would be awesome!

    I'm bumping this 5-month-old post thread because I highly ditto this whole concept and I feel like it could be an important version of Discord

    I would love a cli. The interface is just way too much for me. I'll probably abandon it pretty quick if I cannot find a work around. I dont need all kinds of bells and whistles. It's nice and lots of hard work put into it.. no doubt there; but a simple working "real time" cli like matterhorn would be great.

    This is a good idea, but it's a bad one. Instead, why don't we get Discord to allow custom clients that can be readily viewed online via GitHub, GitLab, etc?

    Since Discord has implemented partnered servers, why not bring that ideology to FOSS and (if they are unwilling to allow all open-source custom clients) only allow certified custom clients that don't break the TOS?

    Of course, even if Discord do implement scoped certification, I doubt people will actually conform to Discord's rules :)

    I'm hoping to hear your feedback on this.

    Thats a great idea. I have in essence abandoned it. Only respond when I need too. The web interface is ( not fun ) and the gui client is too bulky. I dont play video games. I don't watch videos and need to see who has what rank etc.... Non of that. I just want my team chat in text hah.

    Thanks for listening.

    Bumping this!

    Yeah, this is a good idea. But I doubt Discord wants to make another version of their client just for a specific type of people if they're using the original Discord client. Also, making a terminal app means loss of information. The GUI client has everything Discord wants you to see: roles, servers, DM and tools to browse between messages...

    Discord has become the mainstream messaging app. It's so big now that cases like this became so common to see. I don't understand why Discord wants people to not do anything more than using their functions. So, I would prefer to see Discord updating their TOS to allow people make their custom clients with specific rules to not interfere with their business model.
