What is Spacebar?
Spacebar is a Discord.com server implementation and extension, with the goal of complete feature parity with Discord.com, all while adding some additional goodies, security, privacy, and configuration options.
Spacebar allows you to host a complete, Discord.com-compatible chat service with complete control over it's content, usage, security, configuration, and featureset. Being Discord.com-compatible will allow all existing clients, bots, and applications written for Discord.com to be used on any Spacebar instance, which we believe will be immensely useful for any transition process between services.
As Spacebar is an entirely separate service from Discord.com, it means a Spacebar server by itself cannot access private data controlled by Discord.com. You cannot use a Spacebar server to chat with your friends on Discord.com. You also cannot use a Spacebar server to grant premium ("Nitro") features to a Discord.com account (although you can grant these to a Spacebar account).
Our goal is to achieve complete feature parity with Discord.com, as well as implement additional security, privacy, and other useful features serverside. In addition to our server software, we aim to create Spacebar-aware clients that can be used to connect to multiple Spacebar-compatible instances with rich theming and plugin support.
