We have recently installed a Matrix homeserver and thereby joined this interoperable, decentralised, real-time communication network. See the Matrix homepage about what it precisely is and how it works, but it can basically function as a replacement for Slack/Whatsapp/XMPP/etc.
Our Matrix server is located at https://matrix.luon.net.
If you have a Luon account, you can immediately log in and use it. Our Matrix IDs are of the form:
We host our own Riot web client, which is available at https://chat.luon.net. However, you can use any Matrix desktop/mobile client you like. Everyone is free to start their own rooms on the Luon homeserver, or join rooms or start chats anywhere on Matrix.
Note: We currently have no bridges to IRC or other communication networks such as Discord/Slack/etc. installed, nor VoIP support or other integrations. For this, you will currently have to rely on Matrix’ own bridges and integrations.
Note 2: This installation is not completely definitive yet, but you can probably rely on us keeping it around.
