Snikket is a new XMPP/Jabber-based decentralised FOSS messenger service. You can follow at:
The official website is https://snikket.org
It aims to make XMPP into a more viable alternative to Whatsapp etc by providing consistency in design and terminology.
(It's sort of how Mastodon made ActivityPub more mainstream, by using consistency to make it clear the instances are part of one network.)
Yes, we're basing the Snikket iOS client on Siskin and have been implementing Tigase's extensions for Siskin into Prosody modules to ensure reliability.
Discussions are in progress about what needs to happen to get these extensions standardized so we can see them universally supported: https://github.com/tigase/tigase-xeps/issues/4
@snikket_im @tagomago @FediFollows looks encouraging. so what do you think about MIX on the android side? Having asked around, aside from devs of kaidan im (and of course stork im), none of the android developers seem all that interested. not surprising, given android doesn't need it, but without it the work tigase have done won't amount to much.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
