@mcarpenterjr I have a little follow up to our "public by default" conversation. I just opened an issue called "URL for an arbitrary day of history and navigation for next and previous days" (feedback welcome!) at vector-im/riot-web#7677

@mcarpenterjr
@pdurbin thanks man, I'll have to follow along this might prove usefule down the road.
Philip Durbin
@pdurbin
Sure. As I said in the issue. Gitter gets this right.
Mark Carpenter Jr
@mcarpenterjr
I was slightly concerned when gitter was absorbed into gitlab that it would replace mattermost, but it's becoming clearer and clearer each solves a completely different problem, while both fit into the communication tool category both do 2 completely different things.

@mcarpenterjr Thanks for the link. It may be easier for me to setup a Github webhook that runs a custom php script to send the emails (that I would have to build since I can't seem to find one). I was hoping there was an easy way via the Gitter interface that I could for a room, setup email notifications for my user not only for messages but for activities as well. I already have a Gitter room setup that shows all the Github activities of a repository.
Philip Durbin
@pdurbin
@mcarpenterjr makes sense. I think of Mattermost as one of many extremely similar chat solutions. Gitter is different with its embrace of transparent communication. It pairs nicely with open source projects on GitHub or GitLab.

@pdurbin
Is there a way to get a sense of which rooms on Gitter are somewhat active?

@eSilverStrike :thumbsup:

@MadLittleMods
@pdurbin You can look at the archive heatmap for an individual room. There isn't a popular/trending list though. https://gitter.im/explore is the closest
Philip Durbin
@pdurbin
Is there an issue I can track for what I want?
"Trending" or whatever you want to call it? Signs of life.

@MadLittleMods
@pdurbin :smile_cat: Looks like it gitlab-org/gitter/webapp#262
Philip Durbin
@pdurbin
Bookmarked. Thanks. I'd be fine with just a nightly JSON dump of the top 100 most active rooms from the past day. Not sure how hard that query would be. Number of messages per room for the past 24 hours.
If that query were run right now, what would be the count of messages in the past 24 hours for the room that's 100th on the list? 10 messages? 100? 1000?

@pdurbin Would be a good candidate for another Looker dashboard, meltano/looker!204

We have a DataDog dashboard for new objects (communities, rooms, messages, users, etc) but it isn't public, https://app.datadoghq.com/dash/760607/new-object-stats

Philip Durbin
@pdurbin
Does the dashboard give you a sense of what I'm asking? Where the activity, the chatter has been lately. Which rooms?
Philip Durbin
@pdurbin
That "trending rooms" issue is 4 years old with no comments so maybe I'm an outlier for being interested in this.
Mark Carpenter Jr
@mcarpenterjr
You're obviously a Big Data guy, it's cool though.
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods
@pdurbin No, just totals but we could generate that kind of thing even for historical data
Philip Durbin
@pdurbin
@MadLittleMods I would say whatever's easiest. Like I said, even just a daily snapshot of the past 24 hours would be interesting.
@mcarpenterjr well, whether or not it's big data, I agree with the sentiment that getting a sense of which rooms are popular would be helpful for new users: gitlab-org/gitter/webapp#262
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods

@pdurbin It was discussed while developing the explore page but didn't really want to contribute to the big rooms getting bigger effect

It's interesting just something we need to be smart about exposing to the user-base

It's cool to see how important Gitter is to Jupyter: https://discourse.jupyter.org/t/discuss-the-jupyterhub-communications-strategy/27

@pitosalas
is there a way to search a Gitter room for messages mentioning me?
Philip Durbin
@pdurbin
Are you logged in?
Pito Salas
@pitosalas
Yes i was and am now
Philip Durbin
@pdurbin
Huh. Well, if search doesn't work the way you want you should probably open an issue.
Pito Salas
@pitosalas
i am probably doing it wrong. I want to search for all posts in which I am mentioned.
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods
@pitosalas Just search for @pitosalas
Pito Salas
@pitosalas
@MadLittleMods thanks... that seems to search where I am mentioned, not my own posts, right?
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods

@pitosalas Yes, that is what you asked? " search a Gitter room for messages mentioning me" "search for all posts in which I am mentioned"

If you want to find your own posts search from:pitosalas, https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitter/webapp/blob/develop/docs/messages.md#searching-messages

Quick question: how do you get that grayed out text that usually goes "@user wonders about ..." or similar?
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods
@isiahmeadows /me foo

Okay, thanks!
MadLittleMods @MadLittleMods wonders about ...

So that's /me wonders about

Also, while I'm here, is there a reason emoji references aren't expanded in links? For example, :wave: is just text
And not :wave:

Hello everyone. I have one question related to gitter data. Recently, very limited data was shared on kaggle. Does anyone know if gitter shares any bigger dataset?
Jordan Terrell
@iSynaptic
Greetings! Question: I'm trying to create a room that is associated with an existing GitHub repo (https://github.com/rust-rocksdb/rust-rocksdb). When I do, the for says the address is not available. I'm not sure how that can be the case since I cannot find an existing room for this repo. Is this an issue with Gitter or something else? Thanks!
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods
https://gitter.im/gitterHQ/gitter?at=5bed6f2e92b7d1172191dfec @vivek14632 I am not sure what you mean by dataset? Any message in a public room can be indexed by Google

https://gitter.im/gitterHQ/gitter?at=5bed7a8447217e07ff2759dc @iSynaptic If you are selecting the https://github.com/rust-rocksdb/rust-rocksdb repo when creating the community, it will set the URI as rust-rocksdb which conflicts with your org name on GitHub which is reserved, https://github.com/rust-rocksdb

You should change the URI or create a community based on the org instead, https://github.com/rust-rocksdb
