I have started writing an article about XMPP. I will try to keep it as simple, non-technical and short as possible.
Do you have anything you want to see in the article or do you have any questions I should answer in it? Or anything else? Let me know! :)
@hund A list of clients with good XMPP support and that integrates properly with their platform (uses platform libraries, follows HIG, etc)?
Honestly, how to get non-technical people to use it. I want to use it, but can not get anyone to try it. It was a struggle even getting people to switch to Signal.
@PrivacyBear That's what I'm trying to accomplish. :)
@hund Does google hangouts actually use xmpp?
How complicated is the protocol? Compared to irc, gopher, 9p, etc. Is it a pain to implement?
How does it compare feature-wise to matrix and other alternatives?
@hund I'd like type shortest possible list of commands to save an account in profanity. With encryoted messaging as default Looked it up one time them totally forgot it, but I remember that the reading was far longer than it needed to be.
Also maybe a recommendation for a nice GUI app in case I can convince friends to join.
