A private package that downloads the latest Discord .deb file available from official website
Discord is a chatting and texting application whose motivation is to substitute both Skype and TeamSpeak as the desired chat application for gamers and general purpose.
Currently, Discord is available for downloading for all platforms but, in Linux, it is only available for downloading as a raw .deb file or using the Snap Store, without any official PPA. As some users are against the Snap Store (due to its limitations, restrictions and policies), this repository aims to provide an easy solution for all users who want to have Discord installed and upgradeable.
How it works?
On the one hand, Discord is available for downloading from the official website, using the following URL: https://discordapp.com/api/download?platform=linux&format=deb
With that in mind, the file
lookup-server.py just runs every fifteen
minutes and downloads the latest .deb file provided by that link. Then,
reprepro program, the PPA is updated and, if a new version is
available, served to the users.
In that way, the PPA is always up-to-date (with a delay of at most 15 minutes) and the end-user can have the stable installation of Discord (or beta one) in their computers.
