We're moving some of our Gitter chat over to Discord and we want to stop people adding questions into those room when we migrate.

My question is is there an easy way to do that AND keep the rooms available as ready-only (as there is a lot of relevant chat / technical stuff in there. Or do we have to close the room to stop people posting?

@tuckeremulls This room is for Gitter support, the chat app itself, not general technical support. You can try asking in https://gitter.im/openzipkin/zipkin

Hello! I'm trying to use Element to access my rooms, is that possible? I have found that the homeserver is gitter.element.io, and by looking at the room from matrix I can see that my username is my github username followed by a hash, but I'm not sure what the password should be! is this possible yet?

And idea how to prevent that from happening?

Hi, first time user here
Is there any way to search within a room's history so I can avoid asking a repeat question.

Does gitter automatically delete inactive accounts / make them leave groups after a certain time of inactivity?

hi; I am totally new to gitter and searched a little before asking this: is there a way to find out rooms that a user attends to? e.g.: user xyz has a repo on github and i want to know if i can find him on gitter and if yes on what rooms; sorry if the question is too stupid

Any tips on best way to keep track of multiple rooms I follow? Up to now I use the web app. My platform is Linux.

Hi everyone, how can I tweak the activity message in the activity feed like it is in this room, i.e. <user> pushed commit to <repo> instead of <user> on <branch> pushed commit: <commit> (for GH-linked activity)?

@webketje
It's weird because the webhook is enabled for multiple org repo's and it does report activity on all of them, but in the integrations settings, it looks as if the hook is pinned to 1 particular repo

Hello, I am trying to set up a room for my repo https://github.com/tensionhead/pyBOAT As I understand, for this I need to 1st create a community. When I try to do that from an existing repo, I get this red error msg

The name of the GitHub repo you selected conflicts with the name of a GitHub org/user. When you select the a repo "tensionhead/pyBOAT", it fills out the community URI as "pyBOAT" which clashes another GitHub org/user. Change your community URI to proceed.

how can I proceed from there?

is it because of a totally different repo with the same name: https://github.com/MaxStrange/pyboat ?
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods
@tensionhead You're seeing the error because https://github.com/pyboat exists and we reserve URIs for GitHub orgs and users. If you control that org, select it or grant permissions so Gitter can see you have access, https://gitlab.com/gitterHQ/webapp/-/blob/develop/docs/faq.md#why-isnt-my-github-organisation-or-repos-appearing
@tensionhead you can create the tensionhead community first, then create the pyBOATroom in that community
tensionhead
@tensionhead
@MadLittleMods ah thx, and sorry it didn't come to my mind that github.com/pyboat directly exists, it was not shown in my google searches
this github.com/pyboat is an almost empty and pretty dead org.. probably that's why I couldn't find it with web search

@webketje not possible. You can track gitterHQ/webapp#1201

Am I noob, or is the barrier to contributing to Gitter huge? Trying to set up on Linux Mint with OAuth only from Github, I followed all the steps in the README in order (docker up, ./obtain_secrets, source .env, npm start). The "basic" Gitter with the test seed data works, but as soon as any of the env vars from .env are set, I get a bunch of network and other errors
Kevin Van Lierde
@webketje

What I don't understand is:

  • what needs to be filled in in each of the github__, github__user__, and github__anonymous_app__ vars (except the latter, which is clear: create new GH app w. secret). Do they all need to be filled in?
  • why gitter webapp throws a Gitlab error when no env var is even set for Gitlab:
    error: TypeError: OAuth2Strategy requires a clientID option
      at Strategy.OAuth2Strategy (~/dev/gitter/webapp/node_modules/passport-oauth2/lib/strategy.js:82:34)
      at new Strategy (~/dev/gitter/webapp/node_modules/passport-gitlab2/lib/strategy.js:49:18)
      at Object.<anonymous> (~/dev/gitter/webapp/server/web/strategies/gitlab.js:42:22)
    Or when working with Oauth locally, do you need to have ALL Oauth providers working to enable testing a single one?

Note: This is my exp after following README instructions, I didn't dive into the code et

Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods
@webketje For using thr seed data, you might want to use https://gitlab.com/gitterHQ/webapp/-/issues/2563#workarounds
@webketje But the secret setup is hairy, gitterHQ/webapp#2463 and generally all them are required to br filled in which is a pain
Kevin Van Lierde
@webketje
@MadLittleMods Especially when you don't have an account on one of them (Twitter).. Not sure this one is required but I won't create a Twitter account just to contribute to Gitter dev. From the looks of the commit history, are you the only maintainer/ dev on this project?
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods
@webketje Yes, sole developer at the moment
Kevin Van Lierde
@webketje
I made some progress on allowing contributors to test separate OAuth integrations locally

hmm, how do i determine the room name, from the url above?
/join #jenkinsci:role-strategy-plugin.im ?
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods

@mtj:matrix.org It's #jenkinsci_role-strategy-plugin:gitter.im

Just replace the / with an underscore _ and add :gitter.im to indicate the homeserver

If you visit https://gitter.im/jenkinsci/role-strategy-plugin, there is also a [m] icon with a matrix.to link to the room
