the new riot design looks really nice, i hope it's done soon
@lynnesbian oh it's like discorslack
@lynnesbian are they using electron? I've got no problem with using a framework I'm just curious because every chat app based on electron seems to have the same layout from Discord to Wire.
@radicalrobit yeah they are
@xinayder yeah it's not very creative i know, but they've at least put their own spin on it, and there's a reason so many people copy successful user interfaces
@xinayder why waste time on being different for the sake of being different?
@radicalrobit then why waste time coding an encrypted chat app if it works just like Slack?
it may be more friendly because people are used to this interface, but meh. I wonder if they spent their time designing the app to look exactly like Discord or if there's a framework for it.
@xinayder probably because slack isn't fucking encrypted and isn't peer to peer
Let's hope in not yet another behemot
@lynnesbian any way of trying this out? A beta channel download or something?
@Strit unfortunately not
@lynnesbian too bad. The article is from May, so its over half a year old news and still nothing to show for it...
@lynnesbian we’ve had some distractions but it’s converging on completion. WIP is up at riot.im/experimental (warning: still a lot missing)
@matrix oh, i didn't know matrix.org had a masto account! glad to hear it's being worked on!
@lynnesbian I've stayed away from matrix mainly because of that but I might start using it with that
