    This is neat.

    I looked at the install instructions ("from source") and i while there were instructions, there was no download link for the tarball or even the git repository.

  • starting a native adaptive Linux client for Signal

    I've been using Signald for the last few months and then bridging it to Matrix. I think building exactly the same thing based off the Rust client is the most compelling option (and probably something I'd be interested in working on as well!). Given that a double-puppeted Signal account can be used with Matrix today, it'd be a shame to invest in Signal-specific UI. There are multiple "nearly there" Matrix clients that can work on the pinephone and others. You could even bridge libpurple to Matrix if you're into that ecosystem.

    As Signal does not have a real API, it uses signald for communication with Signals server, which is also open source:

    It looks like you just need a client that uses, and the matrix-signal bridge /u/anakinfredo posted is one of them.

    When I wanted to use Signal on my PinePhone and realized how restrictive Signal was in a lot of ways I started looking at Matrix. Matrix feels a lot more like what chat "should" be, if it weren't for reality - there's an existing Java client ( that I've used for a few weeks and been impressed with. Now I bridge my Signal account to Matrix as the first step towards migrating away.
