The D language code club community discord chat server is currently doing a trial run of bridging our Discord server to a Matrix chat "Space".

The spaces feature in Matrix features a lot of similarities to Discord servers and maps very well with a list of rooms. We have linked a few rooms to test out the bridging capabilities.

If you haven't joined the Discord Server because you don't want to use their proprietary app, you might like to use Matrix instead. The spaces feature is available in the Element app once you enable the Spaces beta in your settings.

Once you have enabled Spaces in your settings you can join the space and automatically its linked rooms using

/join https://matrix.to/#/!HDxtVdRNEKXjLPrWDg:m.wfr.moe?via=m.wfr.moe&via=matrix.org

alternatively if you don't want to join the whole space or have an incompatible client, you can also join the rooms one-by-one, currently this includes the following room IDs:

We are currently using t2bot.io to bridge our Discrod channels to Matrix channels, so the service stability may not be influenced by us.

If the matrix bridge proves successful, we might extend it with all of our rooms on Discord as well once the Spaces feature goes out of beta.
