Good catch @lppedd! I created an issue to track this gitlab-org/gitter/webapp#2282
Egil Hansen
@egil
Hi gitter folks, are there any plans to do work on the Android client?
And if you are, is there a place where one can contribute with issues and feedback
Edoardo Luppi
@lppedd
@egil good question. I'd also like to contribute (if my skillset permits it) to the Android client.
Mostly because I'm on the phone quite often
Egil Hansen
@egil
Me too. There are clear bugs where new messages doesn't show up unless you kill the app and start it again. It would also be nice to get a notification when you are mentioned if you are subscribed to those.
I would also like to have personal messages grouped somewhere than channels so it's more easy to spot when you get a direct message.

@schwedenmut_gitlab
@lppedd and @egil the repo for the gitter android client 👉https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitter/gitter-android-app
This would be a good place to open issues, fork and create MRs to improve the client.
The readme is quite straightforward with its explanation to get set up and ready.

@lppedd
@schwedenmut_gitlab thanks!
Marc Schwede
@schwedenmut_gitlab
you are welcome. keep in mind, currently the channel view is realized with a WebView which uses assets from the webapp repository - but you will see in the README.md.

@egil
I figured it was @schwedenmut_gitlab
Egil Hansen
@egil
I was more asking to see if there was any active development going on or planes to create native client or at least one that better integrates with the Android platform?
Marc Schwede
@schwedenmut_gitlab
Oh ok, I see. well if i understand https://gitter.im/apps right, main focus of the gitter-team lies on the webapp. but from my experience with the android client, they are very happy about bugfixes/improvements from the community side 😉
@MadLittleMods while the right toolbar state (pinned) persists, the left menu is always expanded after reload/revisiting gitter. What is the wanted behaviour?
I would expect that the toolbar state persists on both sides.
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods

@egil @lppedd There are no plans to work on Android/iOS in the near and pretty far term. It's one of the epics on the roadmap but very far along, https://gitlab.com/groups/gitlab-org/gitter/-/epics/6

There is even a slight itch to deprecate them because of those bugs you mention, gitlab-org/gitter/webapp#2281. If some of the bigger bugs are fixed that you mentioned, then we can leave them alone. Merge requests welcome!

The notification issue is probably this, gitlab-org/gitter/gitter-android-app#121

:point_up: September 12, 2019 6:47 AM @schwedenmut_gitlab There is an issue to track persisting the pinned state, gitlab-org/gitter/webapp#2236. The relevant code should point you in the right direction if you are interested in making a merge request
Egil Hansen
@egil
@MadLittleMods so focus is on the web app? What about turning that into a proper PWA that uses js notification API etc.?
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods
@egil That's the more near term plan :+1: (mentioned in that deprecation issue) -> gitlab-org/gitter/webapp#1992
Egil Hansen
@egil
Roger. I'll look forward to that then. Thanks for an otherwise great service!

@pdurbin
@MadLittleMods please don't deprecate the Android app! I use it all the time!
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods
@pdurbin We don't want to stop existing users from using it
Ellenor Malik
@janicez
use it through IRC if you want an android app
Philip Durbin
@pdurbin
Hmm. Not a bad point. I'm typing this through weechat and the Gitter IRC gateway. But the nice thing that the Android app gives you is history/scrollback. IRC doesn't.
Marc Schwede
@schwedenmut_gitlab
:point_up: September 12, 2019 7:23 PM @MadLittleMods I will take a look at the issue - thanks for pointing into the correct direction 👍

How do I connect Thunderbird with Gitter. I have followed the instructions on irc.gitter.im but he is giving the error You must authenticate, check: https://irc.gitter.im.
Marc Schwede
@schwedenmut_gitlab
Just out of curiosity I just downloaded Thunderbird and checked - I ran into the same error while everything works with Textual (as example application).
Probably something with Thunderbirds' IRC implementation ?
Marc Schwede
@schwedenmut_gitlab
:point_up: September 14, 2019 10:07 AM @artindk take a look at https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitter/irc-bridge/wikis/Thunderbird which explains the server configuration 🎉
Marc Schwede
@schwedenmut_gitlab
@artindk die it work?
Artin Dekker
@artindk
@schwedenmut_gitlab I didn't try it. I prefer not to make changes to the config editor, the Gitter website is also fine. But thanks for the help.

@ubershmekel
Why doesn't gitter offer google and facebook login?
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods
@ubershmekel Just not implemented. Google login is sorta in the codebase but never got finished up and rolled out, https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitter/webapp/tree/de821fb90dcc6fc244e981f87dfb783678ad699d/modules/google-backend
Yuval Greenfield
@ubershmekel
Gotcha, thanks @MadLittleMods .
I know it's a minor nit for most. But I didn't deploy gitter because I think a large part of my site wouldn't have gitlab/github/twitter.

I have embedded Giiter on our site. It works well for external users but has problems when accessed within internal network/VPN. I get a certificate error while accessing even the Gitter site. Wondering if this is an internal setup problem or is there an ongoing issue with Gitter certificate?
Tomas
@viktomas
@vshantha The embedded version and full version of Gitter are using the same host and the same certificate so it makes sense. I'm not aware of any certificate issues with Gitter. Is Gitter the only site where you observe this behaviour?
Kiti-nomad
@kiti-nomad
Does gitter have a rpm package?
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods
@AmberSaber No but there was a little bit of movement around it previously, gitlab-org/gitter/desktop#201
vshantha
@vshantha
@viktomas No we see it only for Gitter
@viktomas Exact error message: "Your connection is not private
Attackers might be trying to steal your information from gitter.im (for example, passwords, messages, or credit cards). Learn more
NET::ERR_CERT_AUTHORITY_INVALID"
Ben Johnson
@cbj4074
@vshantha It's definitely not the certificate itself, which you can verify easily just by visiting https://gitter.im and inspecting it. My best guess is that you have some MITM happening on your network, possibly surveillance of your corporate network (by your employer, I mean, not some rogue operator).
i.e., deep-packet inspection against HTTPS-encrypted traffic.
Please show us the certificate that you see. Have to assume it's not this one (or that the chain is different than pictured here):

I used alien to convert the .deb package to the .rpm package and successfully installed it.
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods
@AmberSaber Nice! Mind commenting on that issue for others that are curious in the future? gitlab-org/gitter/desktop#201
Kiti-nomad
@kiti-nomad
I am just a rookie.
I used a gitter and I made a good friend. So I want to install it anyway, in fact many software does not have the .rpm format, only the .deb format. But a few days ago my system was debian. It has a problem, so I changed the fedora
I want to chat with him, so I also learned markdown. Programming brings some positive meaning to my life, so I want to be a programmer.
