Feature:Multi-backend support

From Kosmos Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Kosmos currently comes with support for both IRC and XMPP (albeit hiding most of their complexity from the user). With Sockethub, it's very easy to add more protocols/APIs like for example Mattermost or Matrix, or even closed-source, centralized backends like Gitter, Slack, or Facebook Messenger.

We could also think about providing open-protocol gateways/bridges to the non-open ones instead of implementing their API directly (or use existing ones where possible).

Private servers/chat are planned to be implemented on top of XMPP, which is the most feature-complete (and extensible) messaging standard in existence today.
