Help shape the future of CurseForge!

Have an alternative that does not require overwolf

Title says it all. Never used Overwolf when that "crap" got into Teamspeak and was alredy extremely disapointed to see Path of exile addons go there.
Now even you guys move...

    Look, it's pretty plain here, we all fucking hate overwolf, we want nothing to do with your spyware, and it is just that spyware, it reports shit back to it's servers and that's wrong. I own my fucking hardware, and you have no business telling me what i must use. You work for us, start fucking acting like it. Give us a stand alone app, and give ownership back to Twitch, and please, for the love of christ, get the fuck away from video gaming, we do not want you anywhere near us after the experience of your shitty overlay for teamspeak. You can shove this fucking overlay up your ass, I didn't want it then, and I still don't want the fucking resource hogging piece of shit.

    I'm not sure I actually understand what this post is trying to say, but I can say explain how CurseForge works, even if it falls on deaf ears:

    CurseForge is a modern application, and like every modern application, is programmed via a programming language. Not even Microsoft develops Windows in binary CPU instructions. Because Overwolf has their own, simple-to-use, HTML (website code)-based programming language, that's what they use. Overwolf already bought Twitch, give them some rest. Changing to a language like, say, C++ would drastically increase development times and would require a re-write of the entire CurseForge application.

    And for those of you calling Overwolf "bloatware," just be aware that you can easily tune Overwolf to launch and close with the CurseForge application, as I have done, through the settings. Overwolf REALLY allows for the crazy-fast development times that would've taken the Twitch teams many times longer, assuming they had the same dedication the Overwolf-CF team does (which they did NOT). Honestly, would you rather have the Twitch launcher or Overwolf's? Personally, I'll take Overwolf for the massive lack of bloat compared to Twitch, let alone everything else they've added as of late.

    unless there is concrete feedback, it is hard for us to address your claims.

    I logged in to call BS on this. The reason why all these people are upset is becasue no one needs another data-collecting, bloated app full of data analytics marketed as 'features' If you know anything about UX, it is more than just UI and functions. Have some damn integrity and stop gaslighting your users (and maybe even yourselves)

    I can respect trying to expand, I can respect trying to help devs, I can respect separating from Twitch.

    I do not respect signing up with overwolf (imo, far worse than twitch) and I do not respect changing from a fully free experience to an "Ads or pay" format.

    I would give the app a shot, if it wasn't a combination of cringe, frustration and disappointment over having lost something I previously enjoyed a lot. I'll hop on over to MultiMC, or any other FOSS software. Cause I'd rather mod minecraft myself and manage it all myself, than have to deal with this bullshit.

    The new app is built on the Overwolf framework and is required to to work.
    We've addressed this in our first Newsletter, and as of yet we do not have plans to change this. We invite you to give the new app a fair chance and see if it fits your uses.

    CurseForge won't be a stand-alone app

    We know many of you would have preferred to have CurseForge as a stand-alone app. Building it as a dedicated app on the Overwolf "engine", would practically mean that you’ll have the same UX, but with better performance, more capabilities, and faster development cycles, powered by everything we’ve built into Overwolf over the years which will run in the background without interfering with your game play.

    The dedicated CurseForge team of engineers inside Overwolf will be in charge of continuously improving the Curseforge app to be the best mod manager out there.
