    I know I'm late to the party but I don't agree arguing vs. Matrix is bad and counter-productive. As a user I may well be interested in the pros and cons as seen by those involved in the protocols.

  316. Half-ShotX has joined

  317. Holger

    It's quite common that participants in discussions are biased :-)

  318. Lance has joined

  319. Half-ShotX has left

  320. ralphm has left

  321. zinid

    I also don't understand this: several XMPP folks walk around and try to convince some communities to install XMPP instead of Matrix (KDE is such an example, I think Seve tried to convince them, I also recall that Licaon_Kter were trying the same in another community). So, if we don't "fight", let's just give up and let them installing Matrix? So those XMPP folks are just wasting time?

  322. Ge0rG

    Holger: I think it's all about being polite and open to feedback and insights from the other side.

  323. Ge0rG

    Also I'm ashamed about how some of "us" are bashing "them" on every possible occasion

  324. zinid

    yeah, people are obsessed with politeness

  325. zinid

    facts don't matter anymore even in high-tech community, you just need to be polite

  326. Half-ShotX has joined

  327. Ge0rG

    zinid: facts don't matter as long as you are impolite, in any community, since ever. Except when you are the dictator and can just ignore people's feelings.

  328. zinid

    how does the fact relates to politeness?

  329. zinid

    the earth is not flat, whatever you like it to be

  330. Holger

    Ge0rG: That's just not true. Different people, different tone, in any community, since ever. I feel it's a more recent-ish fashion to discuss tone all day, but you won't change it no matter how much energy you put into such meta discussions.

  331. zinid

    I also find it strange to focus on the tone endlessly

  332. Guus

    We focus on tone as yours is actively scaring people away. I understand that you don't consider your tone to be offensive. However, it is to a lot of people that do not share your background. This is how you can do damage to the community as a whole, even when your intentions are nobel. When discussing in a group of people with mixed backgrounds, it is best to err on the side of caution.

  333. zinid

    you see, again this πŸ˜€

  334. Guus

    Yes, and I will, as long as I feel that you are hurting the community.

  335. Ge0rG

    Guus: thanks, that's exactly what I wanted to say, but lacked the right words for

  336. contrapunctus has joined

  337. zinid

    Guus, who is the community?

  338. zinid

    this room?

  339. Guus

    A mix of people of varied backgrounds.

  340. zinid

    yeah, very precise definition

  341. Ge0rG

    "the people who want to make XMPP more successful" would be a better one.

  342. Holger

    So this was just all about tone. I'm sorry I stirred this up.

  343. Half-ShotX has left

  344. Half-ShotX has joined

  345. zinid

    Guus, btw, did you think that Matrix did more harm to our community by attracting them to Matrix?

  346. Ge0rG

    zinid: Matrix didn't do harm to our community. We did that harm by not providing the same perceived quality as Matrix.

  347. zinid


  348. Ge0rG

    (part of that is also yelling at our users)

  349. Guus

    I think XMPP was very complacent before Matrix. Now that they're around, we are more motivated to get things up to spec.

  350. zinid

    Ge0rG, I never heard that someone switched to Matrix because XMPP community is agressive

  351. pep.

    Guus, you mean forced? :P

  352. Guus

    zinid, I've had various talks with people that think XMPP people are acting like dicks.

  353. zinid

    Guus, and I didn't

  354. zinid

    I mean I never heard that

  355. Guus

    zinid, I have been trying to tell you over and over and over.

  356. Ge0rG

    zinid: maybe because you've got a reputation?

  357. Holger

    Guus: "Now that they're around, we are more motivated to get things up to spec." Really? I argued against someone making that statement just this morning. You feel XEP or software development is pushed by the competition from Matrix?

  358. zinid

    Ge0rG, so it's "you" but "we"?

  359. novnov has left

  360. novnov has joined

  361. zinid

    Ge0rG, so it's "me" who hurt the community, but hypothetical "we" when you want to describe your failure?

  362. Guus

    Holger I didn't see that disccussion (was it here), but I do think that it, for instance, Matrix has shown what the effect is of XMPP clients generally offering bad UX/UI.

  363. Zash

    I sure don't feel like we're chasing Matrix. I just wanna sit in my corner and make things better.

  364. kokonoe has left

  365. Guus

    Holger I didn't see that disccussion (was it here?), but I do think that it, for instance, Matrix has shown what the effect is of XMPP clients generally offering bad UX/UI.

  366. j.r has joined

  367. zinid

    note that I'm silent at all outside of these few rooms, I don't see how I can hurt the community

  368. Half-ShotX has left

  369. Ge0rG

    zinid: you have a very aggressive tone on HN, and in discussions here and in the other MUCs

  370. Holger

    Guus: Not sure we needed Matrix to show that, even less sure we improved anything due to Matrix :-)

  371. lnj has joined

  372. zinid

    Ge0rG, I have 3 posts at HN, and I'm joined 3 rooms (one of them is ejabberd and I don't hurt anyone there at all)

  373. Guus

    Holger: we _knew_ it, but we didn't act on it. "since matrix", I've been trying harder to improve things.

  374. Andrew Nenakhov

    First, matrix official client riot is quite a piece of something not very good. Slow, blinking and often crashing.

  375. Guus

    so maybe it's just me πŸ™‚

  376. zinid

    Ge0rG, so I ruined everything by 3 posts?

  377. Guus

    (but I think it's more than just me)

  378. 404.city has left

  379. Andrew Nenakhov

    So I don't know about what perceived quality you are talking

  380. Zash

    Skype was a terrible client too. Yet percieved as better than XMPP.

  381. kokonoe has joined

  382. Andrew Nenakhov

    Second, on zinid's tone. I think he did (and does) more for xmpp than most. Ejabberd is great server.

  383. Zash

    Something something marketing

  384. Zash

    And network effect

  385. Seve

    Thing is, you are not looking with your average user eyes

  386. zinid

    Guus, indeed, maybe it's just you? Maybe it's something not related to the tone?

  387. Holger

    Andrew Nenakhov: πŸ‘

  388. Ge0rG

    Andrew Nenakhov: doing good things for the community isn't a permit to behave like an asshole, though.

  389. Guus

    but, it's not just UX: it also follows things like funding, marketing, getting your foot behind the door of larger organizations - there's much that we can learn from them.

  390. Ge0rG

    Guus: ...having a good easy-to-deploy coroprate setup.

  391. Guus

    (Note that there's much that they can learn from us too - but more interested in learning from them πŸ™‚ )

  392. Holger

    Ge0rG: Awesome tone of yours.

  393. zinid

    Ge0rG, maybe then the XSF will remove those pages where they describe XMPP usages because of my tone? The majority of use cases are ejabberd

  394. Half-ShotX has joined

  395. Zash

    Seve: Yeah, I don't have the same requirements or preferences as your average user. Often the excat inverse actually :)

  396. Half-ShotX has left

  397. Half-ShotX has joined

  398. zinid

    Ge0rG, and maybe the XSF will put the usages created by people from the XMPP "community"?

  399. Ge0rG

    zinid: what's your point, again?

  400. zinid

    Ge0rG, my point is that you need to be consistent

  401. Half-ShotX has left

  402. zinid

    at one hand I'm hurting the community, at another hand you use my product to promote XMPP

  403. Ge0rG

    zinid: I am. I appreciate you doing good development work for the community, while disliking your tone in public discussions.

  404. Guus

    I need to go -- be back in about an hour

  405. Ge0rG

    zinid: I'm interested in your professsional opinion on protocol matters, and that even includes ranting about XEP ugliness.

  406. zinid

    Ge0rG, me too, but your tone is not that great at all

  407. zinid

    so it's not you who should tell me about the tone

  408. pep.

    "Andrew Nenakhov> Second, on zinid's tone. I think he did (and does) more for xmpp than most. Ejabberd is great server.", This is just like saying "My husband beats me but he also buys me everything I want he's a great husband", (sorry zinid I didn't have any other comparison in mind :p)

  409. Ge0rG

    zinid: I'm guilty of a good share of ranting myself, yeah. But I try to rant about things I know about, like XMPP, in the respective community, including this place.

  410. dele has joined

  411. Andrew Nenakhov

    I remember recently we shared an alpha build to our upcoming grrreat xmpp client for iOS, and certain member of community started concentrating on incomplete add contact screen imstead of marvelling at consistent work with message archive, beautiful chat interface, beautiful vcards, capabilities to send files and media...

  412. Ge0rG

    zinid: and I also tend to adapt my tone to the "incoming" tone, which is not the best of practices.

    Linus parallells?

  420. Wiktor

    Riot is ugly and slow indeed, but it's still more usable than anything I've seen on desktop for average user (read: looks like normal messaging app). I didn't check stuff recently though.

  421. Ge0rG

    Andrew Nenakhov: I tried to login with Xabber/iOS, it went from "Authenticating" to "Offline" immediately, with no error message. I wasn't able to add contacts, nor to send or receive messages. What other conclusion should I make than that it's a mockup?

  422. zinid

    pep., I don't find the comparison correct, but okay πŸ˜›

  423. Andrew Nenakhov

    You had to try harder, I guess. It does not go offline for us with our server

  424. blabla has left

  425. Seve

    I think you guys are mixing topics :)

  426. zinid

    Seve, that happens all the time when you start discussing "tone" πŸ˜€

  427. Ge0rG

    Andrew Nenakhov: I entered the wrong JID, but it didn't tell me that.

  428. Half-ShotX has joined

  429. Ge0rG

    Andrew Nenakhov: on the other hand, I was just using your own words, which you used to describe another iOS client, that actually works in my experience... so there is _really_ no need to feel offended ;)

  675. Guus

    Zash, I have working code that advertises the feature, but as I couldn't find anything that would actually benefit from CSI without breaking spec (mostly the out-of-order restriction, iirc), I've never pushed that.

  676. MattJ

    Guus, in theory a significant benefit comes from just witholding unimportant stanzas for $time and sending them together in batches

  677. Zash

    Yeah, messing with the ordering is just ... icky.

  678. Zash types "xep" and 3 random digits into a search engine and gets https://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0286.html

  679. MattJ

    If you do more than that you're in dangerous territory, and even doing just that requires some work to get right

  680. Guus

    MattJ It's all a bit further away in my memory, but if I recall correctly, I thought that, practically, there wouldn't be to much value to it.

  681. Guus

    (I might be very wrong)

  682. Zash

    https://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0286.html#sect-idm45485296239888 > 4.1 Transmit no data > 4.2 When transmitting, transmit as much as you can

  684. Zash

    That sums up a good strategy.

  685. Zash

    Harder to quantify that tho

  686. Guus

    Yeah - I was basically wondering if it effectively is worth the added complexity of CSI, in practice. That's why I held off.

  687. MattJ

    Guus, look up the study that found the Pandora music streaming client used 90% of its battery consumption on 2% of the traffic (because it downloaded all the track at the start [good], and then sent periodic pings back to the server [bad])

  688. Guus

    MattJ but doesn't SM affect that more than CSI?

  689. alacer has left

  690. flow

    I think it is possible that even a trival CSI server implementation just withholding presence stanzas would have an measurable impact on battery life

  691. Zash

    Wasn't that part of SM removed?

  692. Guus

    flow if that's true, then I sit here corrected.

  693. Guus

    my completely uneducated guess was that that's not a meaningful change

  694. Guus

    (as there's plenty of traffic that would cause the buffer to flush)

  695. Zash

    Plenty of presence can be bunched up in batches

  696. flow

    Guus, well it clearly depends on the exact use case. But you could possiblly easly measure the longest idle time for the connection and compare the values with and without CSI

  697. flow

    or s/use case/user/

  698. Guus

    Yeah, that's a thought.

  699. Guus

    Also, I'm not saying that there's absolutely no merit in CSI

  700. Zash

    Measuring would be good tho

  701. Guus

    but the discussion I had at the time made me re-evaluate the priority of that added to Openfire

  702. Guus

  703. alacer has joined

  729. Guus

    doesn't really matter anyways

  731. pep.

  732. Zash

    Guus, no that's the opposite, **to prefer CSI

  734. Half-ShotX has joined

  735. Guus

    pep. err, right - but my question remains: I'm not seeing that there's a difference for the _self-hosted_ aspect of things.

  736. pep.

    Using push means I am dependent on the developer's Push server

  737. Wiktor

    for self-hosting? push is no problem for server operators, rather to client developers (as they need to operate push proxy server). Or maybe I misunderstood what you meant

  738. Half-ShotX has left

  739. pep.

    If I decide to self-host that push server, that means I have to rebuild the app, and register that to google(?), provide it in the play store etc.

  741. Zash

    Guus: I don't get no push notifications. So I personally don't directly benefit from push. Mostly it annoys me with implying that XMPP isn't push already.

    Zash ok, sure - if you'd not use it even if the feature was available, then it makes sense to want to have a different feature first πŸ™‚

    Wiktor no, you did not misunderstand me. That exactly was my confusion.

  746. Wiktor


  747. Guus

    (and I naively assumed that 'self-hosting' only applied to the XMPP server itself)

  748. Wiktor

    Yeah, well, I wouldn't use "self-hosting" to describe running your own push node, just like I wouldn't use it to describe forking a client, but that's just semantics I guess

  749. Zash

    No push notifications in my phone OS that I know of either.

  750. Guus

    Zash sure, but then you're running something that the vast, vast majority of corporate users isn't running.

    for the record there are alternative push services to google, random example: https://developer.huawei.com/consumer/en/devservice/doc/20102

  753. alacer has joined

  754. Zash

    Fun fact: the first implementation of push notifications for prosody was tested against an SMS API

  755. Guus

    Which says more about the developer than the intended use case, I think πŸ™‚

    MattJ, you mentioned that if XMPP started today, it would not use XML. What do you think would it be, and why?

  793. MattJ

    A good question :)

  794. Zash

    Probably depends on who started it

  795. MattJ

    The thing is, I personally believe XML was, and still is, a great fit for XMPP

  796. pep.

    The X in XMPP stands for XML right, there's no way we use something else

  797. MattJ

    The reason is that it has namespaces right there

  798. MattJ

    Namespaces in most formats tend to end up pretty ugly at the end of the day

  799. Zash

    JSON with namespaces and schema isn't really nicer than XML

  800. zinid

    this is not a technical question, but marketing

  801. pep.

    But why use namespaces when you can have everything included (!! No I'm not trying to revive the discussion :p)

  802. zinid

    XML has bad reputation already

  803. Zash

    XML got a bad reputation because it was popular and used for things where it wasn't a good fit

  804. zinid

    Zash, does it matter why?

  805. Zash

    JSON is used for things today where it's not a good fit.

  806. Zash

    zinid: Does anything matter?

  807. zinid

    Zash, yes, something definitely matters

  808. Guus

    fwiw, I've found that standardizing anything on XML is easier than doing the same on JSON.

  809. zinid

    but not why XML got "outdated"

  810. MattJ

    Everything gets outdated

  811. Guus

    and I agree with zinid, XML has a bad reputation - I think that's primarily caused by the fact that it's hard to use for people that use it in a usecase where json is a better fit.

  812. Zash

    Bring back ASN.1!

  813. zinid

    Zash, yes!111

  814. zinid

    let's call it ASN.2

  815. zinid

    new exciting thingy

  816. Guus

    ASN.2.0 <-- you need the marketing thingy!

  817. Zash

    Is binary, has schema, namespaces, all the bells and whistles anyone could want

  818. Lance has left

  819. Zash

    Or well, ASN.1 is ... the schema?

  820. zinid

    Zash, I think it's schema + encoding, no?

  821. MattJ

    Seve, none of this answers your question. The answer is probably "HTTP+JSON" and because that's what people use for everything today...

  822. zinid

    MattJ, yeah, but HTTP+JSON is a very rigid construction, it doesn't fit everything

  823. Guus

    I would call JSON many things, but not 'rigid'. πŸ™‚

  824. MattJ

    zinid, it's k->v pairs + arrays, it does fit everything :)

  825. MattJ

    Maybe not optimally, but it can be done

  826. MattJ

    Note that I'm not saying it would be a good idea

  827. Zash

    MattJ: Did you see the thing I played with this morning? It failed sometimes because of the order of keys in JSON objects.

  828. MattJ


  829. Half-ShotX has left

  830. Half-ShotX has joined

  831. zinid

    well, they invented CBOR, which has 1:1 mapping with JSON, why?

  832. Zash

    CBOR is nice

  833. zinid

    btw, CBOR is even more compact than ASN.1

  834. Zash

    zinid: That doesn't make sense

  835. zinid

    Zash, what exactly?

  836. Seve

    MattJ, I didn't say anything because I'm interested on the topic and wanted to know what people say. I was just wondering when you mentioned that, if you had some other solution for it that could replace XML today for XMPP or if you had in mind the popularity JSON has these days. Very appreciated :)

  837. MattJ

    Seve, no, I have no better solution in mind

  838. Zash

    zinid: Is CBOR more compact than PER or the one I forget the name of that's ΓΌltra-compact bit packing?

  839. zinid

    Zash, I think there is comparison with DER in RFC 7049

  840. blabla has joined

  841. Zash

    I wrote a CBOR lib, so I think CBOR is nice. It can fit Lua tables natively, as opposed to JSON.

  842. zinid

    ah, BER!!!

  843. zinid


  844. Zash

    CBOR is pretty compact for something that is self-describing

  845. Zash

    BER & co is also self-describing

  846. zinid

    > 3. no schema description needed That's a moot advantage of CBOR, tbh

  847. Zash

    But I imagine schema-aware magic like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Packed_Encoding_Rules#Packed_Encoding_Rules can be more compact

  848. zinid

    Zash, indeed, I think PER is more compact than BER

  849. Half-ShotX has left

  850. Zash

    But then you you lose the self-describingness and need the schema to decode

  851. zinid

    schemas are awesome

  852. contrapunctus has left

  853. zinid

    ejabberd internally uses schemas only, no XML parsing

  854. contrapunctus has joined

  855. Wiktor

    Yep, CBOR is nice, every time I see base64 used nowadays I cry a little as this is just a workaround for the inability to directly store binary...

  856. blabla has left

  857. blabla has joined

  858. zinid

    I still think ASN.1 is the best! Except maybe Cobol'ish syntax, but I can live with that

  859. Zash

    Can haz CBOR encoding rules

  860. zinid

    Zash, ah, true

  861. pep.

    zinid, what kind of schemas do you use in ejabberd exactly?

  862. zinid

    pep., hand-made

  863. pep.

    I mean, what schemas, what tech, XML schemas?

  864. pep.

    schemas doing what

  865. Half-ShotX has joined

  866. zinid

    pep., no, erlang'ish, https://github.com/processone/xmpp/blob/master/specs/xmpp_codec.spec

  867. zinid

    pep., the schema tells the codec how to decode/encode XML into internal Erlang structures

  868. zinid

    so basically same stuff as ASN.1

  869. pep.


  870. pep.

    That also builds parsers etc.?

  871. zinid

    really? Link Mauve is working on the same for Rust, I thought it's already well recognized approach

  872. zinid

    pep., yes

  873. Wiktor

    for the record stanza.io does something similar: https://github.com/legastero/stanza.io/blob/master/src/protocol/stanzas/bookmarks.js#L6-L28

  874. alacer has joined

  875. pep.

    zinid, yes, and I'm also working on it, but we have an XML parser in there

  876. pep.

    Well, we expect parsed structures already, we don't handle raw strings

  877. zinid

    pep., well, yes, an XML parser translates into internal XML Erlang representation, then the codec converts the representation into valid Erlang records (kinda structures in C)

  878. pep.

    Ok. I was confused for a sec

  879. zinid

    so it has two passes, which is of course not very efficient

  880. pep.

    But you gain a lot more with that anyway. And it's already way more efficient than doing the same in python, hands down..

  881. zinid

    pep., <message/> -> #xml{} -> #message{}

  882. pep.


  883. zinid

    think of #foo{} as a C structure

  884. Wiktor

    too bad this can't be derived automatically from schema in xeps :)

  885. pep.

    Wiktor, indeed

  886. Lance has joined

  887. pep.

    zinid, yeah I get it

  888. zinid

    yes, so stanza.io guys, myself and Link Mauve are reinventing it from scratch

  889. pep.

    We do the same in xmpp-parsers anyway

  890. zinid

    what surprized me, is that ejabberd became faster with such approach

  891. Zash

    Wiktor: Was this because of the schemas being incomplete or XML schema itself not being capable of expressing things sufficiently?

  892. Link Mauve

    Completely unsurprised. ^^

  893. pep.

    Zash, both? I guess, mostly the latter

  894. Wiktor

    I remember schemas being incomplete when I tried parsing XSD -> TypeScript using a library (just a PoC), then there were issues with the library not supporting all constructs of XSD correctly

  895. zinid

    Link Mauve, maybe for you πŸ™‚ but I had doubts back then, I was thinking about slowing a bit

  896. zinid

    the problem with XML schemas is that you cannot build structures for your language from them

  897. zinid

    at least I don't know how to do that

  898. Wiktor

    Zash, e.g. https://github.com/spreeuwers/xsd2ts/issues/1

  899. zinid

    I'm not proud of inventing my own schema at all

  900. architekt has joined

  901. alacer has left

  902. Link Mauve

    Yeah, me neither.

  903. Link Mauve

    But it was mandatory given xsd doesn’t help with internal structs.

  904. Wiktor

    well you can build structures but you need to write the xsd -> target language translator first, and that wouldn't be a weekend project, probably with a lot of bugs etc.
