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 @firstname.lastname@example.org / @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!
@Gina I've set this up now. Not done any auth with it yet though. See how I go. Thanks for the recommendation! 👍
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 👇

@matrix We're going to try and implement matrix, jitsi and discourse at a Hack Space I attend so will have more time to read up and work out what I'm doing wrong. I'm no expert. This week though time was against us.
May look more into Auth0 as that's what Mozilla use isn't it? I couldn't find any documentation as to how they managed to connect it to matrix though.
I'm definitely no expert with auth so need step by step guides 😀
@matrix hi at first we tried to use discourse as the sso provider following this guide:
Then looked into auth0 and briefly at keycloak. It was always the case that if one thing worked with one service, we couldn't find documentation or figure out how to get it to work with the other services.
@matrix I don't understand how shared Auth is not a priority. It's so frustrating to me. I had a chance to convert to open source communication for my company, but I couldn't wire it all together, so the easy choice for them was MS teams. Gutted.
@matrix is there a guide to get shared Auth working with matrix? I've had a nightmare this week trying to get matrix, jitsi and discourse to have shared Auth. My company went with MS Teams in the end because we couldn't make it work. We couldn't even work out how to whitelist an email domain. I really wanted it to work but feeling really disheartened at the minute.
Average at best.
Not the artist. Web developer. If something is broken, it's probably my fault.
