@jvalleroy I've tried Movim and the interface looks modern but... it's hard to find active members. This is a problem since it isn't part of the Fediverse. I wonder what your experience is.
@ericbuijs @jvalleroy Even though I don't use #Movim myself, I've always thought of it to be ideal for private sharing, without your close social network. As opposed to the #Fediverse, which I think makes more sense for public microblogging. Sadly Movim is the only implementation of sharing content on #XMPP, though. So no mobile app or anything.
@stevenroose @ericbuijs @jvalleroy Salut à Toi is doing it too (I'm the main developer of it) and it's available on desktop (native, not electron), Android (native too), web, console, CLI. Could technically be available on iphones too, but you know Apple and AGPL… Movim is not the only XMPP based content sharing/social network or whatever you call it tool. Note that we are friend projects.
@kostensenker @ericbuijs @jvalleroy
Does it ask for your own movim host? What I don't like about Movim and their web app is that it uses a custom backend server. Instead of directly talking with the XMPP server like Converse does. So if you login in the public movim instances, your sending your password over to their server.
@jvalleroy Looks like a nice self-hosted alternative to WhatsApp groups (and groups on other messengers) , with richer content formatting.
