This week’s App of the Week is Discross. Discross is an unofficial Discord client compatible with all platforms that support HTML. It’s secure, too—it uses webhooks and a bot so it doesn’t need access to your Discord user token, which would allow anyone to control your account. Here's a little bit about it from the creator:
"I used discord.py to create this (and many other libraries). The creation process started with making a bot bot that would mirror my messages, and then I made it send as anyone from the browser. I have a repl for modding Minecraft Classic (an old version of Minecraft that was ported to JS by Mojang) but that's on a different account." - @discross
With the discord information, discord has published their API here: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=11&ved=2ahUKEwioufWi9M_nAhXBla0KHdlHBOoQFjAKegQIBBAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fsupport.discordapp.com%2Fhc%2Fen-us%2Farticles%2F212889058-Discord-s-Official-API&usg=AOvVaw0XB3AAgMTjMOAjx66e0NYb
The Discord API is used for other programming languages. I’ll share the languages with this post.
This is pretty neat! I made an implementation of this a while back using Firebase: https://repl.it/@Battlesquid/squad
Never shared cause I'm running on free tier of Firebase and didn't want storage to blow up. I also made the bot I was running the app on independent and migrated it to a new bot, but I haven't had time to work on it.....
