#gzdoom-discordrpc

license

A discordrpc client for ZDoom written in Rust.

WIP(?) cross-platform support. It works on Linux and Windows, still need to test on MacOS. Use at own risk and all that yada yada.

I'm making this because:

  1. I could not find a pre-existing DiscordRPC client for it
  2. This is something I would actively use, which would make developing it that much more fun
  3. I can actually visualize how I would go about it, unlike most other projects where I feel blind as a bat

#How it works

  1. Program reads first argument
  2. Program connects to Discord via RPC
  3. It then looks for a doom process based on supplied argument, and parses it's window title ("level - game/mod")
  4. It is separated into an &str vector
  5. The icon will be the logo for the game/mod, the status will be the level, and the hover text will be the game/mod
  6. Program loops every 15 secs, looping every second would be overkill

#Running

  1. First make sure that GZDoom or LZDoom is running, if using GZDoom make sure to be inside of a level.
  2. Download a prebuilt binary from the releases section.
  3. Open a terminal (on Windows, CMD or PowerShell should work just fine) then...

ENGINE = gzdoom or lzdoom

Linux: chmod +x gzdoom-discordrpc, then ./gzdoom-discordrpc ENGINE

Windows: .\gzdoom-discordrpc.exe ENGINE

From source:

  1. git clone https://github.com/Phate6660/gzdoom-discordrpc
  2. cd gzdoom-discordrpc
  3. cargo run -- ENGINE

#TODO

  1. Rename project to zdoom-discordrpc, that way it makes more sense.
