  • sydent

    Sydent: Reference Matrix Identity Server

    Matrix, if you switch to something other than discord you want it to be decentralized and open source so it's not controlled by any single person or company

  • cinny

    Yet another matrix client

    Matrix is honestly really good, with Element and Cinny being great clients that anyone can use.

  • revolt

    Repository for miscellaneous repository management and discussions: https://github.com/revoltchat/revolt/discussions

    AFAIK that's essentially what https://revolt.chat/ is, and out of the contenders I think it's the best looking one I've seen yet, though like others are saying it's still not nearly as popular and feature-rich as Discord itself unfortunately. If things keep heading in this direction though, maybe that'll change in time

  • client

    Open source, themeable and extendable discord-compatible native Spacebar client (by spacebarchat)

    There also is Spacebar (aka fosscord) https://github.com/spacebarchat/client As well as Discord API "emulators" (litecord)

  • discord

    A Matrix-Discord puppeting bridge (by mautrix)

    Yes, you need to host both the server and the bridge (https://github.com/mautrix/discord for example)

  • banter

    Banter is a feature-rich Discord clone built with React, Redux Toolkit, Next.JS, TypeScript, styled-components, Tailwind CSS, and uses Firebase to communicate with the back-end.
