Support for Matrix group chat would be nice. There are already a few native clients, of course, including QT5-based clients, but given the limitations of my netbook I'd rather run as few programs as possible. libqmatrixclient is commonly used and is available under the LGPL.

I want to add it, but Matrix has some protocol issues right now, and I'd rather wait for them to get it sorted about before I implement it. But I'm not against the idea at all.

Hi cancel. Thank you for Ripcord, it is excellent. Is it possibly time to revisit this? It seems that with Mozilla starting to adopt Matrix, there is momentum building. I don't know if the protocol has stabilized but I use Spectral, which use the same lib GreenReaper mentioned, and it is pretty reliable.

+1 to revisit this. There have been an explosion of clients, libraries, bots and otherwise, and it's seeing wide adoption (at the least via bridging to IRC) among open source developer communities.
