    What's the state-of-the-art for XMPP-to-other-chat transports? Neither Spectrum2 nor Matterbridge are built for XMPP specifically, which means there's guaranteed impedance mismatches as they try to cater to the lowest common denominator.

  418. Daniel

    Spectrum2 isn't build for xmpp?

  419. Ge0rG

    Spectrum2 is just horrible

  420. rion has left

  421. Ge0rG

    deuill: biboumi is a great irc bridge, and Bifröst is slowly getting better at matrix bridging

  422. deuill

    Not in the sense that XMPP is the singular source/target abstraction used, and less so by the fact that you're mostly relegated to using libpurple-based connectors.

  423. Ge0rG

    And libpurple hasn't followed up with xmpp for the last decade

  424. deuill

    Biboumi is indeed wonderful, and Spectrum2, though terrible, is probably the best thing around...

  425. pasdesushi has joined

  426. deuill

    I realize that chasing after moving targets and working around potential ToS violations and the like make any significant effort here a fool's errand, but Matrix trumpets this idea a lot

  427. adiaholic has left

  428. Ge0rG

    I was going to say that matrix also has paid developers working on their bridges, but my experience with Bifröst has been very mixed in that regard

  429. SamWhited

    I always thought bridging was a bad idea in general, but I can't tell if it's actually part of the reason for Matrix's popularity among the Hacker News crowd or if it's just a thing they like to talk about a lot

  430. Daniel

    I think there are some dedicated bridges (not multi transport) that work ok

  431. SamWhited

    That is to say, I'm always unsure if it's something we should focus on or not

  432. Daniel

    One for IRC and one for whatsapp

  433. Daniel

    Oh and JMP's SMS bridging seems to work fine

  434. Daniel

    According to people...

  435. Adi has left

  436. Mikaela has left

  437. Ge0rG

    SamWhited: having a commercial quality bridge for some commonly used silo networks would be great, but doesn't have a business model

  438. Ge0rG

    Also you'll run into getting blacklisted really fast

  439. deuill

    Ah right, forgot about the WhatsApp one, that's another good example. My understanding is that Matrix-the-project has been sold under this idea of being the one protocol to mesh/replace others from the very start.

  440. SamWhited

    Actually, that's a fair point, JMP is pretty great. I was using them as my primary phone provider for a while, only switched because I was needing group SMS more and their implementation of that was terrible. Otherwise it was fantastic.

  441. Ge0rG

    deuill: as was xmpp, twenty years ago

  442. Ge0rG

    deuill: there are some quotes and links in https://yaxim.org/blog/2019/04/01/yaxim-enters-the-matrix/

  443. werdan has joined

  444. moparisthebest

    SamWhited: jmp has somewhat recently started a group texting beta using that pre muc xep I can't recall right now... Supposedly works well

  445. lovetox has joined

  446. deuill

    Right, and that's probably a good way to build up hype until you've reached some critical mass -- I suspect bridging will become less prominent as a goal if the project becomes popular enough, especially given how much work it is to keep everything working.

  447. mathieui

    moparisthebest, muc-light (or lite I don’t remember) ?

  448. moparisthebest

    No it's a xep-00xx

  472. deuill

    I wonder if bridges might work well for driving client features/XEPs that might otherwise need to wait for genuine support.

  473. deuill

    For example, message reactions, threading, etc. Though I'm guessing client developers aren't exactly experiencing a dearth of feature reports without this sort of additional pressure.

  474. deuill

    I guess the XEP-0033 issue above is an example of that.

  475. SamWhited

    moparisthebest: that was the thing that made me finally leave them actually; it's worse than the implementation they had before because it's not supported by anything. Before at least I could see who sent a message, with that groupchat thing I just see that a MUC with a dozen numbers in the title sent a message and have no idea who anybody ise

  476. peetah has left

  477. peetah has joined

  478. moparisthebest

    Ah, well it's still optional, and someone threatened to write a muc bridge for it

  479. SamWhited

    yah, I'd waited several years so when they finally got it but it was worse than the original I just decided I couldn't wait several more years for them to use a spec that anything actually supported
