Open source the Galaxy client

Opening the source code of the Galaxy client, or parts of it would allow the community to contribute to the client development and avoid multiple unofficial clients to lag behind the official one.

I'd rather use GOG over Steam if it was open source

Open-sourcing it would encourage developers to contribute to it and maybe write plugins. Therefore, I think it could more easily become the standard game launcher. <br /> <br /> And as said, making it GPLv3 would prevent your work to be taken to build a closed source launcher.

Release it under the GPLv3+ so that you are sure nobody profits from your work without releasing the changes back to you and the community. <br /> <br /> And I am pretty sure the community can get most games working on GNU/Linux flawlessly via DOSBox and Wine.

It already is (mostly) open source. Just beautify the Javascript and go ahead. At least for galaxy 1.0 GOG gave the goal. Something along the lines of "if you can work out how things work, you can go ahead".

My dream launcher would be a mix of Galaxy + Lutris ( for the ease of installing non native games on Linux ). <br /> Releasing Galaxy open source ( Even with a license that restricts it's use in commercial projects if you want ) would make a lot of sense. <br /> Currently the client is not on Linux : you don't have the manpower to make a clean port ? Leave it to the community, bug-fixes will even benefit Windows + Mac versions. <br /> A merge of the functionality of Lutris and GoG would be even possible, just imagine, you just click play and it plays whether you're on Win, mac or Linux.

You are saying GOG galaxy client respects our privacy. But how can we really know you don't lie ? The problem is, today, you can't trust anyone about privacy, it's so easy to include some spyware or backdoor. Open source is a solution to this. Also, you would get the benefits from it : better security, help of the community, good rates, get the paranoid people to you, etc ... Open source is really important, consider this two times before staying closed source.

I don't see any reason not to. Aside from all open source benefits, it would mean GOG is leading the market in an ethical manner, and is contributing to a more ethical digital world. Coupled with a naturally arising Linux support even without much effort from the team's part, you would have total support from the growing Linux community. <br /> <br /> Yes, I made an account just for this, and I hope I'll get to use it more should a Linux-available, open source client come along.

I think a lot of people are being misled by the open source plugin module. This is incredibly disappointing because a fully open source client would come with many benefits. Tons of positive PR, allow peer review and security auditing which is now a concern given the connections to other services and it'd also allow the community to develop and maintain a Linux client if they're not willing to do it themselves. Such a missed opportunity.

I hope they open the whole thing up and not just plug-ins. FOSS is the future of gaming along with decentralization. I hope GOG is a leader in both one day.

Especially with Galaxy 2.0 on the horizon, I'd like to see the client go totally open source. The FOSS community would love to get involved. You get more money from people who want to support open source and we get total privacy + a smoother client. Win/win!

I've been having problems with the Windows client. Steam is *much* smoother, and there's no good reason for it. I'm a developer. I could track this down and fix it. And I would because I'd *rather* use GOG and I'd rather recommend it to others, but Galaxy is so clunky, and my hands are tied. <br /> <br /> It's so close to being something I could love.

Galaxy is basically a DRM; the only reason people use GOG is because it's DRM free; which fixes many older games where activation servers are dead etc. <br /> We don't want DRM; and if Galaxy was open we wouldn't be so afraid of it.

@darknase, OpenSSL has been deemed insecure crap by LibreSSL... guess which one gets more money, the guy with the big name OpenSSL.

If you don't want to make the client for Linux give us at least the source code to do so ourselves. <br /> <br /> @Merranvo - You see this 'https' in above URL bar? That works because of a concept called "security through security", unlike the one proposed by you (and companies like MS) called: "security through obscurity". The latter has been proven to be non-functional, i.e. not working for any length of time. Even the WWII Enigma was known how to work ... still wasn't "crackable" without a computer, for most part.

If you really want to prove to GNU/Linux users that you care, this would be a great way to go and would probably require a lot less work than making a GNU/Linux version yourself. <br /> <br /> Making it open source would allow you to get help from the community where problems come about and to have the community support platforms you currently can't.

@Merranvo <br /> Open Source is not contradictory to IT-security, it's a requirement. <br /> If you could download games you didn't own with Open Source Steam Client, it was just not securely built. The same as with the proprietary one. <br /> Security through obscurity is not secure.

*Mind you... yes, that client let you download from steam's own servers... because steam never imagined that anyone would hack their client. The only thing open source is going to do is make GOG need to crack down on security and making certain they're protecting everyone's interests.

I support this, because I intend to use the open sourced client to do things like, download games I do not have (the open source version of Steam allows you do to that, Steam added in a feature later that prevented it but you can still download HL2 for free because of the power of open source)... or steal account details by pushing an update that results in a HeartBleed level SNAFU. No one actually checks the code you know, many eyes many thieves.

I can't think of any good reason for them to not go open-source. It would allow the community to fix a lot of problems themselves, like the lack of a Linux version, so why not?

It makes a lot of sense given that the Linux GOG Galaxy client doesn't seem to be going anywhere.

I'd be down for this myself. <br /> <br /> It'd make progress on a Linux GOG Galaxy faster (probably)

This would be excellent. I think many of those who are interested in open/free software would be more inclined to contribute to GOG's efforts than Valve's. I'm hesitant about the suggestions for an open API and would much prefer a consolidated codebase for anyone interested to contribute to.

Obviously, the Linux version of Galaxy is going nowhere - with the reason being GOG just doesn't have the resources. (Side note: GOG - remove the "In Progress" status from the Linux client wish). So... it make sense to open-source the client and the API or whatever is needed so the COMMUNITY can help port Galaxy to Linux (any any other platform we like). Come on GOG... it's been literally YEARS that we have waited for this... buying games on the promise that eventually we'll get a client for Linux and then get to take advantage of the easy installation, updates, cloud saves, etc. And the truth is, GOG is not really working on a solution.

This is actually a brilliant idea. Given the enthusiasm of the community here, and given the apparent lack of resources GOG seems to have, this may be the only way Galaxy can ever meaningfully compete with Steam. <br /> <br /> GOG would then only need to maintain the APIs on their servers for the client to hook into. Hopefully they already use RESTful APIs (or a similar tech), in which case not much would change on that front (apart from maybe opening some communication channels with the new open-source devs, so things are kept in sync).

I think the idea of open-sourcing the galaxy client would go hand in hand with the principles of DRM-Free games! Would love to see this happen!

I agree with this. I'd love to see Galaxy supported on as many platforms as possible and open soruce is the way to accomplish that most efficiently.
