Part of the series: Social Media

Looking at aspects of Social Media - platforms, histories, popularity, philosophies, etc.

  • Attribution

  • Matrix.org is a Free, open source, and decentralized messaging system. One of the strong points of this system is its ability to bridge multiple protocols together into one interface.

  • Riot.im

  • Bridging to Freenode's IRC server is built into Matrix.org. If you already have a registered Nick on Freenode it is a simple process to associate your Matrix and Freenode accounts.

  • Steps to bridge to a Freenode IRC room

    1. Start a direct message with @freenode_NickServ:matrix.org and send the command identify nick pass (replacing nick and pass with your credentials).
    2. Direct message @appservice-irc:matrix.org with the command !storepass nick:pass
    3. Join the room #freenode_#oggcastplanet:matrix.org. You can really join any room on freenode with #freenode_#CHANNAME:matrix.org
    4. PROFIT!!!!

Did not know this

Thanks for the info Thaj. I didn't know how to do this, but now I do. I can now be both klaatu and notklaatu on Matrix, and that's pretty satisfying.

appservice-irc

Oh cool!

When I was using Matrix+IRC before, unauthenticated FreeNode was still ok, but now I know what to do if I start using Matrix again.

I have been using XMPP and Biboumi, but didn't host my own and the hosted ones have not been reliable. I miss IRC, so I may come back to Matrix soon.
