But the apps will be deprecated so a year's old ticket won't land right?

@old-square-eyes It can land from a community contribution (happy to review that)

I just created a community but didn't have the option to make it private
Is that possible or am I missing something?
Tomas
@viktomas
@kdheepak Only rooms within the community can be private. Communities are always public.

Thanks.

Hi guys. Is it possible to change mode when typing so that the Enter button makes a new line instead of sending the incomplete message?
In mobile app
Tomas
@viktomas
@pasha-pivo the compose mode is available only on desktop

@MadLittleMods is there a reason why the official mac version is the old 1.177 (non opensource based on safari) and not the "current" 4.1.0 wich can be downloaded if path known?
just curious because i am using 4.1.0 ;-)

Hye guys, having this issue right now

can't scroll down to see the full msg
(it's not always, and when I change from one chat to another it gets fixed)
This is how I trigger it: make it work correctly, then change the screen size (I move my window from a screen to another) and the problem shows up. Like I said changing from one chatroom to another fixes the problem, refreshing the window doesn'tw ork

:point_up: September 27, 2019 4:20 AM @schwedenmut_gitlab The reason we were holding off is because the auto-update process on 4.1.0 isn't that great
:point_up: September 27, 2019 8:28 AM @ericmartinezr I have seen this a couple times recently as well, mind creating an issue? https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitter/webapp/issues

@MadLittleMods FYI i’m having a go at fixing the iOS app today, re gitlab-org/gitter/gitter-ios-app!6 -
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods
@puremourning Sweet, can't wait to see the merge request (even if WIP)!
Ben Jackson
@puremourning
It’s good news/bad news. I have it all running. I’ve upgraded to swift 5 so can test on latest sim and my devices. But the chat room is just empty. Can’t seem to get the web view to work. Also seems very broken in dark mode. Fun times. I will keep hacking away at it.
I’ve also added a couple of instructions to the readme (E.g. need for cocoa pods)
Ben Jackson
@puremourning
@MadLittleMods @viktomas it seems like the ios assets are just broken in latest master in webapp. even if i download the archice from the latest CI build of mobile-asset-build, i just get empty webview. any ideas ? (fwiw i can’t repro any crashes in the app yet)

my bset guess at the moment is that the mobile-native-embedded-chat.js isn’t being included in the webpack
but that is what’s best described as an uninformed guess
Ben Jackson
@puremourning
Hahah. I was right! does a dance. I just added that to the webpack config and it now works.
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods

@puremourning Better to discuss all of this in https://gitter.im/gitterHQ/contributing

Great sleuthing!

Is it possible to alter a community name? Slug I understand not being able to, but the name appears to just be aesthetic.
Mike Rochefort
@omento_gitlab
I see, my eyes completely missed that earlier.

@johnpankowicz
Is there a video tutorial or manual on getting started with using Gitter?
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods
@johnpankowicz No, we just have the docs, https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitter/webapp/tree/develop/docs
Marc Schwede
@schwedenmut_gitlab
:point_up: September 27, 2019 6:13 PM @MadLittleMods ok, then I will not go on and update the homebrew cask for gitter to point to 4.1.0. Thanks for the clarification 👍
Mike Rochefort
@omento_gitlab
Out of curiosity how many people are on the Gitter team? It seems like a project with a lot of potential, but never really hear anything about it since the GitLab acquisition.
Philip Durbin
@pdurbin
Well, they recently hired someone. So they're growing. :) But my impression is that it's a somewhat small team. I agree that it has a ton of potential. :)
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods

@omento_gitlab @pdurbin Just two of us, https://about.gitlab.com/company/team/

The roadmap is linked in the readme, https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitter/webapp#gitter-webapp. Currently working on threaded conversations but there is a lot we wish we had the bandwidth for

Ben Jackson
@puremourning
word of advice - the most confusing aspect of MS Teams is that in the team page, the conversations are threaded by default
this leads to there being N conversations where N is the number of replies before somethiung inevitably says “stop starting new converstaionts, use the reply button"
honestly, MS Teams is bewildering, but that one as a UX is terrible. getting threaded convestaions right in real-time chat is a serious challenge :)
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods

@puremourning Our first iteration is just a simple indicator with the number of replies below the message

All of the threaded conversation issues are tracked by this epic, https://gitlab.com/groups/gitlab-org/-/epics/360

@puremourning
i always thought that the intuitive way would be that if you @-mention someone at the start of a post, it automatically makes that a “reply” to that person’s last message (which might be part of a thread). I suspect that in practice it’s a billion times more complex (like 2 people @ meting tha same person etc. etc.) but it would be dead nice if the work flow didn’t involve a mouse. just my 2p

oh i see, you stick it in a side-bar
i think that is a nice idea
yeah it works well
