  • The Matrix Trashfire
    When is seriously touted as the best iOS client for XMPP, you already lost 50% of the market share in the US. And if you don't have any usable app for 50% of your users in one of the most important markets, you can not really claim "interoperability", can you? Don't get me wrong, it would be great if more people were using XMPP. Now that I am more involved in the Fediverse space I'm learning how... - Source: Hacker News / 3 months ago
  • What's the status and progress of decentralized social media?
    Let me put it in another way: of all the existing projects out there, which one does actually bring material benefit to the users and publishers compared with, e.g, Mastodon, Matrix, Movim or Nostr? Source: 11 months ago
  • Thinkpad for Full Stack Web Development?
    Any Thinkpad will do the job. I'm working daily on a T430 and X220 for both my personal and professional web dev work. I've been developing Movim for more that 10years on the same computer Source: 11 months ago
  • Ask HN: How might HN build a social network together?
    For social networking atop XMPP, see Combined with the in-development ActivityPub gateway from Libervia, interop with Mastodon, Pleroma and others becomes possible too. The decentralized social web space is quite active at the moment. - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • How to rebuild social media on top of RSS
    Https:// I've built Movim ( on top of that and many users have already access to thousands of articles daily, pushed in real-time in their timelines. For example here is the ArsTechnica page on Movim - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • Instagram Is Over
    If you don't care at all about poluar figures and just want to share content with people you actually know, would be a much better alternative. - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • Ask HN: Private group chat with no registration
    > No registration needed for group members This one is the most troublesome I think. Usually this is in a conferencing solutions though, so no such thing as chat rooms, I think. Otherwise I would suppose something like XMPP with a web frontend, eg ejabberd supports anonymous users, though I can't say if movim or any else web-client supports that natively... - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • Movim – A decentralized social platform built on XMPP
    I like the idea but the landing page doesn't inspire confidence. My browser window is half with on a normal macbook and most of the text and images overlap making parts of it un-readable. - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • The first beta of Slidge (XMPP bridges) is out
    Hi, Movim developer here I'm really happy to finally see some modern bridging features integrated with XMPP and compatible with the latest standard (reactions, quotes, status...) ! - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • Like Facebook, but smaller and “private” and “free” with no “ads”
    Okay, last attempt! Take a look at It's open social media based on XMPP, you can set up your own server if you want. - Source: Hacker News / about 2 years ago
  • Is it possible to have something like a myspace/facebook page inside an xmpp server ?
    I haven't really used it, but it sounds like Movim might be what you're looking for? Source: about 2 years ago
  • Movim 0.20 has been released: A federated, open-source web-based social XMPP client with OMEMO End-to-End Encryption
    Nice. And the front page: Source: about 2 years ago
  • Does XMPP support video conferencing?
    Https:// is even compatible (i tried myself) with conversations, snikket and others... Webrtc p2p videoconferencing within xmpp... Source: over 2 years ago
  • IETF should keep XMPP as IM standard, instead of Matrix
    I'd suggest taking a look at Movim: It takes an appropriately set up xmpp server and essentially reproduces a social network. Microblogs, groups, and chat. Implements OMEMO and the like if memory serves. It is a great platform and just as compelling as Discord IMO. - Source: Hacker News / over 2 years ago
  • XMPP: The secure communication protocol that respects privacy
    Hi! Glad to see XMPP on the HN first page this morning :) I'm working on a social-network and IM web platform (for 12 years already!), fully built on XMPP Thanks to its extensibility and the PubSub XMPP standard you can easily build social-network like features. The standard is pretty simple, it's Atom 1.0 transport within PubSub. For those that likes RSS/Atom you can also easily publish Atom... - Source: Hacker News / over 2 years ago
  • Self hosted RPi p2p social network
    Https:// is a social network platform built on top of XMPP. Source: over 2 years ago
    Gajim and Dino both work on Windows and Linux and support most features you'd expect (Gajim is mature, Dino is a newer project and Windows support is still experimental). There is also Movim, a web client. Source: over 2 years ago
  • WhatsApp enables multi-device capability
    >What about iOS? [Siskin] [1] seems to be the best client for iOS right now. It's not as good as Conversations. >What about desktop? I am pretty happy with beagle (OSX) [2], Dino (Linux) [3] and Gajim (linux, windows, OSX) [4]. If in-browser is your thing, converse.js [5] or movim [6] come to mind. >What if I don't want to run my own XMPP server? Use [1] [2] [3]... - Source: Hacker News / over 2 years ago
  • Vitalik: "We need to move NFTs onto the layer 2 ecosystem to cut fees. However, doing that *right* requires good cross-rollup portability standards, so the ecosystem can avoid getting locked into one particular L2."
    Yes, not just that. Not only there are plenty of services already that implementing ActivityPub, there are also social networks on top of XMPP, the IndieWeb folks who show that plain-old www is already a "decentralized social network", there are social networks that can even work in an offline-first world.

  • Modern XMPP
    I'd be really interested to hear the authors' take(s) on movim - is this under the umbrella of "modern" and are they involved? I love their social networking features and have periodically used their nodes but I've never managed to get family and friends on board. I suspect easier clients would be key there, but last I checked (2015, admittedly) server support for movim wasn't great. - Source: Hacker News / over 2 years ago
  • The Open Source Directory (Open Source Alternatives to Popular B2B Tools)
    Regarding the IM/Slack alternatives you can maybe consider adding Movim ( ). Fully based on XMPP with plenty of features already packed in. It can easily be deployed on a simple web-server. PS: I'm the author and maintainer. - Source: Hacker News / almost 3 years ago
