@fenix@allison@mewmew@n0btc it stored chats as emails and worked on all platforms and was interoperable, lightweight, to the point. The only chat logs I have left are bc of that “fall back to imap” strategy. Many good decisions.
@am@allison@fenix@n0btc@mewmew yeah and it's developing rapidly especially in the last time when Matrix moved into the game... I think it would be far more easy to solve the problems XMPP has than make something usable and comparable fast, easy to scale etc out of Matrix
@am@mewmew@allison@icedquinn@jr@n0btc pleroma chat is pretty alright for what it is, but I prefer XMPP because of client availability. Pleroma chat doesn't work on obscure older smartphones and tablets desu
@mewmew@n0btc see I've never done stuff of this scale before, just getting XMPP working was a big enough feat for me, and I've still been meaning to switch my database for it over to postgres but putting it off because right now it's working just fine. This is also my first real experiment with Nginx, every other "server" i had growing up ran Apache but everyone is showing me how much better Nginx is for some things and I'm just like *pikachuface*
@n0btc I'm a #Jabber / #XMPP user. Daily users for the last 3 years. #Conversations on #Android and #Dino on Linux. I run a server for friends and family, it's super reliable. Only problem I had in those 3 years was Let's Encrypt related. The server never needed any attention whatsoever.
