    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.

    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.
