I wish I didn't have to use Hangouts, Riot, Discord, IRC, Mumble, Wire, and SMS all at once
what this also means, is I'm not joining your hot new chat system, fuck off
I'd love if everyone just used XMPP, and we almost had that, and, then we didn't
seriously, Google Talk almost had everyone using XMPP!!! I was using the DuckDuckGo XMPP server to talk to people!!!! then, Google switched to a proprietary protocol with Hangouts.
honestly, we should have all seen it coming, but we didn't.
I want to consolidate everything to Matrix/Riot, but Riot's UX is so bad right now, and it's tied to the fucking web platform
I should really make my own Matrix client
Dendrite server, HTML5 light client for low-friction adoption, Qt Linux/Windows/Mac client, and native iOS and Android clients all with a similar UI/UX would be really fucking nice, and it's technically within my ability...
fuck, I do not need more projects.... but, I do need more non-Minecraft projects... hmm...
well fuck I just talked myself into this didn't I.
does anyone have a name for it?
since this would be like 5 clients, and not 1 client, Discord would be a perfect name for it, but that's taken :L
there is a WIP matrix client called Fractal, so, something else
since this'll be a bunch of clients that are similar on the surface, but actually completely separate, that's sort of the theme for the name, so if you have any ideas in that vein
also if it sounds like the shitty startup of the week I'll say no
bonus points if it's a math term related to matrices or vectors
or a term related to projection in computer rendering, since those are based on matrices
and you better believe I'll ask Tyson Tan to design us a mascot once an MVP is ready
this project sounds *fun*. something is wrong
ok, we have one issue: I'm not a C++ dev
is diving head-first into C++ as a seasoned Java dev a reasonable thing to do?
sounds like it is. so, what's the best Qt IDE
("use a fucking text editor" is a reasonable answer and is probably what I'll do)
@unascribed @aeonofdiscord I really like QTCreator. It's been flexible enough to handle QEMU's codebase without freaking out. If you enable the "ClangCodeModel" plugin you get perfect autocompletion and error reporting. Refactoring and debugging work decently.
I've also heard good things about Clion, although I haven't tried it yet.
also, for the future: what does it take to get on F-Droid?
I'm tempted to start with the web client to block out the design, but, that's unlikely to do me any favors
@unascribed I choose just use IRC, Matrix, SMS, and Masto; anyone who isn't on one of those isn't cool enough to matter anyway 🔥
