Time to read This Week in Matrix! News about servers, clients (many!), bridges (IRC news!) and more. PLUS a fun chat with the creator of a new blog engine using a Matrix backend #twim #matrix #decentralisation https://matrix.org/blog/2021/06/11/this-week-in-matrix-2021-06-11

Since the #Quarantine the @email@example.com / @RiotChat@twitter.com instance of the French gov has grown from 89k to 140k users, a 57% increase! 👏
Even more impressive: daily messages increased 10 times, from 15k to 160k.

I've found this guide
to follow for @matrix SAML2 auth, so as soon as I can find a keycloak discourse auth I'm (mainly) good to go!
People are realizing that their new "work from home" venture capitalist tools are not privacy friendly.
In my remote work guide, I've included ethical alternatives to Slack, Zoom etc. These are Matrix, Riot, Jitsi, Taiga, Basecamp.
I've used Jitsi Meet and Matrix/Riot extensively for video calls over the last few weeks and they are great alternatives 👇

The language is Spanish, but the technique is superbly illustrated so it should be clear to everyone
Just tried to sign up for Auth0 to see if I could figure something out. Good start.
I know this is impossible, but ideally it would be 'log into back end, enter url, api key' and bang! Instant shared auth between the sites. 🙂
I really hope easy oneclick type solution for shared auth gets sorted out. I know discourse can act as a sso provider, but trying to make it work with matrix and jitsi was beyond me.
Today is a frustrating one. With the explosion in working from home, I had a chance to try and sell open source solutions as the answer. I went for discourse, matrix and jitsi. Unfortunately we had such a horrible experience trying to hook them all together with shared authentication that my company has binned the idea off and we're now using MS teams. They'll never consider an open source solution again. One bad experience ruins it forever.
Average at best.
Not the artist. Web developer. If something is broken, it's probably my fault.
