Integrate Discord Rich Presence


#1

It could be really cool to integrate Discord Rich Presence in Lutris! For instance, it could display the game we are currently playing, the logo and on which platform/runner.

What do you think?


#2

Here are some examples of Rich Presence implementation in Python:

So, no developer wants to try?

That might be very useful for our upcoming offline lobby feature

Interesting! :open_mouth:
What is it about?

Meh. If you really want to tell the world you’re using lutris you can just click add it! in the Games section of discord’s settings.

@strider might be useful, but at the same time in my eyes I know that discord is closed source so it makes security audits and privacy an issue (even if lutris is just a gaming platform).

Edit: as a side note, Discord really doesn’t like things meddling with their own applications; see the Discord vs BetterDiscord (integrates extensiblity into the discord client) issue. Though that being said since Lutris wouldn’t be doing anything of the sort It’s probably just a non-issue. Though, it does raise some questions harking back to Discord being closed-source.
