About the networks.

  • Matrix is an open standard for inter-operable, decentralized, real-time communication.  It’s my preferred communication network and serves as the primary home for my discussions.  You can find more information at https://matrix.org/.
  • Gitter is a messaging network and platform which focuses on collaboration and discovery.  It features integrations with GitHub, Trello, and many other environments through a flexible API.  You can find more information at https://gitter.im/.
  • Pnut.io is a short messaging social network.  Some of my development projects are in support of this network.  It’s free but currently invite-only.  You can find more information at https://pnut.io/.
  • XMPP is an open XML based protocol for real-time communication. It is the chat network I’ve been using the longest and will continue to support for the foreseeable future. You can find more at https://xmpp.org/.


About the bots.

  • CMDrMonkey – This bot integrates with my gogs server.  It accepts new issues from participants and posts when pushes are made or when releases are created.
    cmdr create owner/repo "title" "optional description"
  • GitHub – This bot integrates with GitHub for creating new issues on projects hosted there for authorized users.
    !github create owner/repo "title text" "description text"
  • RSS Bot – This bot simply shares posts from a few RSS feeds that are relevant to the work I’m doing.
