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 #foss, 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)

Two responses: first *thanks very much*!
It's awesome that you're freeing this library under the GPL. I'll definitely pay for #ripcord without hesitation when you're ready to ask for money!
2nd: my concern with ripcord not being #foss 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.

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!
