Matrix

Some Sugar Labs chat takes place on Matrix (see Matrix Protocol).

  • Currently, no Sugar Activity allows access to a matrix channel
  • You can use a computer-based client to log in to Matrix, such as Element or Fractal. This link should work for such clients: #sugar:matrix.org
  • Easiest, might be this web browser-based service provided by Element through chat on #sugar:matrix.org now.

Matrix is designed for group communication in discussion 'channels', but allows for personal chat and data transfer as well. All Matrix channels at Sugar Labs are bridged to their respective IRC channels using matrix-appservice-irc. This bot bridges the IRC channels to Matrix and vice-versa. For your messages to be visible on the IRC side, please follow How to use Matrix channel section

The Sugar Labs Community uses a series of rooms in the matrix.org network.


matrix.org channels

General:
#sugar or https://matrix.to/#/#sugar:matrix.org For day-to-day Sugar development—a casual, friendly place where Sugar developers collaborate.
#sugar-systems or https://matrix.to/#/#sugar:matrix.org A channel for discussion about Sugar Infrastructure. See the Sugar Labs Infrastructure Team.
