  • Matrix Synapse federation problem, what am I doing wrong?
    If I visit in my browser, I get the usual "Synapse is working" notification page. I can register users, connect to the server and create rooms etc but when I try to explore public rooms on any other instance ( for example) I get the following error:

  • Self hosted messaging backend
    Instead of reinventing wheel, I was looking for a simple messaging backend which gives HTTP APIs like /createGroup /addParticipants /sendMessage but can stand about 1000+ students easily. I found but if there is something more simpler and straightforward connecting to a MySQL database, it would be best.
  • Help setting up/maintaining a Matrix server | 2021-09-16
    Hi, I'm a grad student from the Art + Design department looking to host a Matrix homeserver for our students and faculty. The server would support federation with other Matrix servers, and ideally also Discord and Telegram bridges as to connect with existing UIUC communities.
  • Encrypting a phone, to not be able to be tracked, or anyone to see my messages, or know the messages came from my phone | 2021-09-15
    For service, Tor/VPN -> VoIP for talking/texting. This would prevent any GSM tracking and prevent any ISP logs. One could even work off a matrix synapse server ( for voip/text.
  • Strava Matrix chatbot; | 2021-09-14
    Hey fellow Strava users, I ‏‏‎ made chatbot that echos Strava club activities to any rooms the bot is in. It's a very slim chance, but if there are any Matrix users out there, this might be suitable up your alley! (Matrix is a cool distributed decentralized privacy-focused chat protocol, read more at
  • The Teams Chat Search really sucks.
    A shame Telegram isn't fully open though, would be better if they supported to avoid being locked to their network. "Native" Matrix could be better for enterprise in terms of control/policy if you are willing to host a server yourself (or rent one).
  • E2EE vulnerability in multiple Matrix clients | 2021-09-13
    It wasn't designed exclusively as a federated network, tbh - we've been planning for P2P since pretty much day one; is a talk I gave in 2015 when Matrix was less than a year old on our plans to go P2P.

    Personally, I think it's really nice that in P2P Matrix precisely the same client-server API is used as for normal Matrix, so all the work that goes into the Matrix client and E2EE etc is preserved without any changes at all. Instead, it just talks to a server running on localhost, which then replicates traffic around over the P2P overlay (in future using store-and-forward servers if the target server is offline). It's really not a bunch of hacks, thanks to Matrix being architected to make the replication transport & protocol pluggable from the outset.
