Feature:Multi-backend support

From Kosmos Wiki
Jump to: navigation, 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.
