digitalmars.D.announce - All Community Discord channels are now being bridged to Matrix

After having tried out the Matrix bridge for a while and Spaces 
now being properly released in the Matrix spec and starting to 
become available in clients, we have now bridged all the Discord 
rooms to Matrix rooms.

The Matrix space is accessible via 
[#dlang:m.wfr.moe](https://matrix.to/#/#dlang:m.wfr.moe) or if 
your Matrix client does not yet support the spaces feature you 
can join the individual rooms by browsing the `m.wfr.moe` Room 
Directory.

The bridge is now also self-hosted and limited to just the D 
discord, so it's a lot quicker than the previous solution, 
although the previous solution is still in place for the existing 
channels and will be migrated later.

What does all that mean? Is that something that only Discord users should understand be interested in? :) Ali

This is for Matrix users, so that they may communicate with the Discord channels without using Discord. If you don't use Matrix, you can ignore this.

Yeah, emacs is a fine operating system in need of a good editor. ;)

It would be awesome if someone wrote an editor that runs inside Emacs. Oh! It kind of exists: M-x shell and start vi in there. :) Ali

it's bridged - we support both and most are using discord, but we want to have matrix work just as well.

Discord is getting more and more monetized and is completely closed source. Matrix is not really that great, but it's better than a Discord if you are looking for something more futureproof. Personally all the times I tried Matrix, I didn't like the frontend web clients. They do feel incomplete and inconvenient. However now I just stumbled upon this client and maybe it looks somewhat promising https://cinny.in/

At the risk of bumping an old topic, I would highly recommend not limiting yourself to web clients. I personally use nheko, which is a great desktop client with support for nearly all features that are considered necessities (spaces, stickers, etc. etc. etc.).
