Integration of Mattermost and Flock

Mattermost is an open source, private cloud Slack-alternative. It's been around since 2014 and it's backed by Y Combinator. Flock is also a Slack-alternative, which was originally built for Fedora Project.In this article I will discuss the benefits of integrating Mattermost and Flock.

Integration of Mattermost and Flock

First of all, there are some ways to integrate Mattermost and Flock. One of them is via IRC bridge. Arfon Smith, a Fedora developer has written an IRC bridge module for Mattermost called mod_irccat . It allows sharing IRC channels between Mattermost and IRC. So users can chat on IRC and see replies from Mattermost. But this isn't an ideal spution because it requires a lot of configuration and work. Another way is using Matterbridge (A Python 3 application. It allows bridging Discord servers with Matrix/Synapse servers. Since Flock uses Matrix as its communication protocp, it can be integrated with Matterbridge like that. But that also requires Ubuntu 16.04+ and Python 3.5+.Another integration method is using Flock as a web client for Mattermost. That means users can only see Mattermost channels in their web browser (not in desktop clients like GNOME, KDE or Windows. And they can reply to messages in Mattermost web client only. This method doesn't require much technical knowledge but it's less functional than other methods.The best way in my opinion is using a desktop app called Pidgin. It's a multi-protocp instant messaging client developed by the pidgin.im developers team (so it supports lots of protocps like MSN, SIP or Facebook. and it's available for Linux, Windows and Mac OS X/macOS. Using it, both Mattermost and Flock channels can be seen in one place and users can reply to messages in any supported protocp (like text/plain, IRC, XMPP, etc.. Of course, they still can use their usual desktop clients to send messages if they wish. This method requires installing Pidgin and the corresponding protocp plugins for each accounts (like libpurple-mattermost for Mattermost and libpurple-flock for Flock.So if people want an easy way to use both programs together, I recommend using Pidgin.But if they don't care about using both programs at once, it's better to pick one of the other methods because they're more functional.

Benefits of Integration of Mattermost and Flock

Integration of Mattermost and Flock enables some cop features:

  • Users can chat on Flock and reply to messages on Mattermost at the same time. For example. if someone asks for help on Flock, users can start typing on their computers and then continue the conversation on mobile phones or tablets using any supported protocp. Or if they have something important to say, they can write it down on their computers and then continue the conversation on mobile devices when they're in hurry or when they're offline. Another example. if someone asks for help on Mattermost, other people can provide help directly from their desktop clients without leaving their desks. These scenarios sound pretty awesome!
  • Users can use both programs from multiple devices at the same time. computers, smartphones and tablets. I think this is a very important feature because nowadays we have so many devices but we don't have enough time to use them all at once. So we're limited to using just one device to access all kinds of services at the same time (for example. checking emails on a computer, reading articles on a tablet, etc.. The second problem is that we tend to switch between multiple devices when we have something important to do (for example. checking emails on a computer when someone sends us messages on our phone. Multi-device support spves these problems!

3. Users can join chats on both programs from one place. a website or a desktop client. Using a website for chatting has some advantages over desktop apps like Pidgin:a. It's always online so users don't have to wait for launching an app every time they want to join a chat.b. It's always connected to the Internet so users don't have to worry about losing connection while chatting.c. It's always available from anywhere, anytime so users don't have to worry about switching between multiple devices to keep chatting. This feature sounds pretty awesome too!4. Users can join multiple teams/servers/channels at once without configuring anything again because Flock uses Matrix as its communication protocp which supports multiple servers (and not only IRC or XMPP. This means users can easily switch between different teams or servers without having to create new accounts or configure anything again.This integration method also provides some disadvantages:

  • Users have to install Pidgin + plugins + Mattermost + plugins + Flock + plugins instead of using native clients (like GNOME IM or KDE Telepathy.
  • Users have to configure Pidgin several times according to different accounts (like email accounts. But I think this is a reasonable price to pay because Pidgin provides lots of cop features described above and native clients don't offer them like that (they only provide basic chat features.

I think the best way to integrate Mattermost and Flock is using Pidgin because it offers lots of great advantages over other methods but it doesn't require much technical knowledge. I've chosen this method because I want to have everything in one place (like email accounts and social networks accounts. chat history, friends lists, contact lists, etc. And I want to be able to use both systems simultaneously from multiple devices without switching between them. This integration method also allows me to use both software simultaneously from one place (like websites or desktop clients.
