OpenAsar  /ˈoʊpən ʌsɑr/  (o-pen as-are)

Nightly Status License: AGPL v3

An open-source alternative of Discord desktop's app.asar


  • 🚀 Startup Speed: ~2x faster startup times (up to ~4x with experimental config)
  • 📈 Performance: OpenAsar can make your client feel snappier (scrolling, switching channels, etc)
  • 🖌️ Splash Theming: Easy theming for your splash which works with most themes for any client mod
  • 🔌 Drop-in: Replace one file and it's installed, that's it (same with uninstall)
  • ⚙️ Configurable: Adds many config options for Discord and OpenAsar enhancements (see config section)
  • ☁️ Lightweight: <1% of Discord's original size (9mb -> ~50kb)
  • 🛡️ No Tracking: Removes Discord's built-in tracking for crashes and errors in the asar (not app itself)

See FAQ for more details
