What is Ripcord?
Ripcord is a desktop chat client for group-centric services like Slack and Discord. It provides a traditional compact desktop interface designed for power users. It's not built on top of web browser technology: it responds quickly to input, sips gently from computer resources, and gets out of your way. It does voice chat, too.

This is what a chat program is supposed to look like in terms of responsiveness and memory footprint. A few features are still missing, but I still vastly prefer this over any of the bloated web app clients it replaces.
A prime example that not everything needs to be web-based or electron-based to be good.
A blazing fast and minimal resource app.
I'd like to see improvements too, like a better UI scaling, option to create your own themes, and to show appropiately the sections where you don't have permissions to send messages.
Perfect, missing features like video calling and screen sharing exist and such but aside from that I've always wanted something for discord that could be THIS responsive and customizable too. I hope it continues updates, there's no true harm in allowing your community (((or whatever they wanna consider their users, yknow like the discord staff itself i mean))) to modify and customize what you've already created and even build on top of it.
I hope discord realizes this soon. No, seriously. I hope they do, because the "official" discord ui made me nearly pass out of feeling nausea from it several times. It messes with my vision, I have like several physical and mental conditions. I just wanna get that bare minimum of living and not feeling like nothing is being done to help me out.
PS. i made a 5 star rating because regardless of those few missing features at the moment, i can get around pretty comfortably with this application anyway.
Unofficial Discord Client which is against Discord's Terms of Service and can get you banned from the Platform.
It does exactly what Discord doesn't. It's blazing fast!
This program is perfect for my medium-performance Windows tablet, which struggles to run Discord smoothly. And it even has all the features you'd expect, including server management and voice calls. I'm really excited about this.
The best-known graphical alternative client for both Discord & Slack so far.
Just what I need. Light on resources and fast, usually logging in within 5 seconds. At this point it is still only Alpha, but it has been very stable and is not missing many features. For admin of discord channels this is a very useful and time-saving tool. For people on a restricted data plan the option to minimise data use is essential. I look forward to the Beta version, maybe it will earn the full 5 stars.
