Gitter loves
Chris Nicholson, Deeplearning4j:

We have an engineering team and open source community distributed over several continents, but the conversation lives in one place - and that's Gitter.

Valentin Anastase, Freezing Moon:

Other communication solutions for the projects I’ve been involved in were far from ideal. Switching to Gitter was one of the best decisions I've made and there's no going back now.

Troy McConaghy, BigchainDB developer:

Gitter is the main way people contact us to ask questions about BigchainDB. I guess it just feels more open, immediate and personal.

Krishna Srinivas, Minio:

Gitter is the IRC of the post-IRC era. It has helped us at Minio build and connect with our community really well.

Sam Saccone, Marionette.js Lead:

Gitter has helped to bring the Marionette community together, turning it into a thriving collaborative environment that has been exceedingly beneficial to both our endusers and maintainers.

David Dias, LXJS Conference Organiser:

Gitter was an essential tool, not only for organising LXJS but to create a thriving community amongst our attendees before, during and even after the conference.

Doge, Chief Woofing Officer:

Wow chat. Much awesome.

Loved by our users

Gitter is nothing without the people using it day in and day out.

We asked a few people what Gitter means to them, this is what they had to say. If you love Gitter, Tweet us @gitchat and we'll update these quotes every month.

We also have a sweet little IRC bridge.

The dedicated Gitter Android/iOS apps are no longer recommended and are officially deprecated. For Android/iOS, we bridge all public rooms over to Matrix, so you can use any Matrix client like Element (Android) or Element (iOS) to access those rooms.

Our efforts are focused on the webapp which is the backbone of the mobile/desktop apps but mainly focused on the web experience. There are a number of bugs in these desktop/mobile clients and they spread the Gitter team too thin for us to give them proper attention. The apps are open-source if you want to tackle something particularly annoying to you. (desktop, iOS, Android)
