Quick question: XMPP or Matrix?
The idea: offering my friends & family a decentralized alternative to Whatsapp, Signal, Telegram & co, for instant messaging and audio/video calls. As many of them live in areas where fiber-optic internet is available, having them running their own tiny server @home would be the preferred option.
- pros : very easy standalone install and setup, clients available for most platforms and quite easy to use
- cons : Metronome, the server used in YunoHost does not allow audio/video calls
- pros : apparently most secure solution in the market, Synapse server available in YunoHost
- cons : standalone install and setup of a server is quite complex, apparenlty a little less user-friendly for the average Joe
