Based on recommendations from several of you fine folks, I just tried out , the unofficial /#slack client by @cancel

I've got to say, from a first impression, I'm *really* impressed! It makes slack and discord way more manageable, while also using far fewer resources than either one alone.

Shame it's not , though; I'd be much more likely to pay for it if it were. (It is free-as-in-beer though, at least right now)

cc @eel@sunbeam.city @rnickson thanks for the tip!

I just made a significant new portion/feature of it open source a few hours ago :)

Two responses: first *thanks very much*!

It's awesome that you're freeing this library under the GPL. I'll definitely pay for without hesitation when you're ready to ask for money!

2nd: my concern with ripcord not being has more to do with not loving the idea of communicating using code that I/we can't audit. This library—while super nice!—doesn't address that issue.

@codesections @eel @rnickson

Yeah, I'm not sure what to do about that. I have to make money from Ripcord at some point to keep developing it full-time, and I have no idea how to do that by asking for donations only.

If you have some established track record with security auditing then email me cancel@cancel.fm (my PGP key is on keybase) and I will grant access to the source code. I'm not worried about the code leaking, just non-paid forks existing that people use without paying me.

I don't have a security background, but I hope someone else can help. I'll boost this toot to see if we can find one of the great and folks in the fediverse.

The fact you've build a native discord/slack replacement is incredibly awesome, and I really hope someone can help with an audit of ripcord!
