Hello
In the rooms do not appear online, we can see what is online.

@pdurbin
I recently heard that https://www.includecpp.org is a good place to talk about C++. I heard that at https://www.allthingsgit.com/episodes/learning_a_new_codebase_with_patricia_aas.html
@GaurangBansal but maybe there are C++ channels on Gitter too. Not sure.
@congthanhsem with a book, I guess.
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods
@GaurangBansal @pdurbin You can try https://gitter.im/cpluspluscom/public for C++
Philip Durbin
@pdurbin
Ah, good to know. Thanks.
I'm still curious about which Gitter rooms are popular. Which have the most activity. Will we ever be able to know?
Philip Durbin
@pdurbin
I guess I'll keep waiting for gitlab-org/gitter/webapp#262 :)

Hey @MadLittleMods :wave:

I would like to contribute to Gitter. Do you mind pointing me to some starter issues for me to get started?

Thanks in advance!

@arun1595 did you see the big orange We're Hiring button? ;)

@7heM1sf3t_twitter
@MadLittleMods ok i see it. I'm on ios. You can't just make that setting to where it could stay on or off? Still I don't really need it, I only created a second account because I forgot about the first.

@nafg
@RichGriese is something stopping you from making a bot that does that?
Also, why is that important?
Philip Durbin
@pdurbin
@RichGriese Gitter definitely lets you delete messages that are spam, for example. I think the philosophy is to keep the nice chatter.
Philip Durbin
@pdurbin
Sure, I understand. How do you feel about Twitter? It's sort of like chat but it's not ephemeral by design.
Philip Durbin
@pdurbin
There's a lot to unpack there. Is there more than one production installation of Gitter out there? Would yours be the second one?
Philip Durbin
@pdurbin
Well, Gitter has been open sourced but I don't know if there is a second or a third installation yet or not. I'd love to see a list of installations.
I guess I'm wondering if you need both the "right to be forgotten" feature and the ability to install Gitter on your own server.
Philip Durbin
@pdurbin
Are you trying to get everyone to agree with you? Is it ok with you if some of us see the value in persisting interesting chatter?
Well, as has been suggested, I assume there's an API that can be used to delete messages. But you said you wouldn't want to code this up (wouldn't or couldn't?) so maybe you could hire someone.

LOL:

When I asked if that was possible back then, I was met by incredible hostility, almost stoned for heresy.

It's really not an unreasonable position you hold. Surprised it was met with such criticism, especially given GDPR and similar.

Philip Durbin
@pdurbin
No, I was saying I don't know of anyone with an installation of Gitter besides the main installation.
Ben Johnson
@cbj4074
Maybe this has changed, but there was a time that only some of the code had been licensed in a way that would allow for what you're describing. The webapp moved to an MIT license, but there were (and may still be) server-side components that are still proprietary.
I think the goal was to make it all MIT or similar, but I'm not sure if that's happened as yet.
Philip Durbin
@pdurbin
Hmm, maybe, but I think enough of Gitter has been open sourced that someone could come along and run their own installation of Gitter. From poking around the code and running it on my laptop, however, it doesn't seem like Gitter was designed from the ground up for easily supporting installations other than the main one. Feature like "branding" or whatever seem missing.
No, you can install your own Gitter. You can try anyway. I tried. On my laptop. It worked. But it's hard to control the branding of the installation, I think.
Ben Johnson
@cbj4074
Interesting, and cool. Maybe somebody will implement "theming" some day.
Philip Durbin
@pdurbin
Yeah, like Wordpress themes.
Wordpress feels designed from the ground up to be installed by lots of people all over the world. Gitter doesn't. It would be great for Gitter to move more toward the Wordpress installation experience. I don't know if there is an issue tracking this or not.
Philip Durbin
@pdurbin
The Gitter roadmap goes through Jan 2020 and has some great features listed but I don't see any epic about increasing the number of Gitter installations around the world, about making it easy to install and customize Gitter for your needs.

How do I change global notification settings when no notification is currently being displayed?

For global notifications, click "Configure Defaults" in the bottom-left of the notification modal.

It's easy to change per-room notifications, but it's less clear how to change the default. I expected to see some "profile settings" in account menu, but there is none.

There should be "Settings" before "Sign out" and "Delete account" (or even instead of "Delete account").
Philip Durbin
@pdurbin
@vi did you find it? You have to look in any room. It isn't under your account.
Vitaly Shukela
@vi
Looked again in room notification settings and found "Configure Defaults" link.
I mis-read the documentation and though the "notification modal" is the pop-up which appears when there is some message to be notified (there is bottom-left thing there as well).
Philip Durbin
@pdurbin
Sounds like good feedback.

:point_up: December 1, 2018 8:01 PM @arun1595 Probably best to address something you would like to see added/fixed. Some of the issues with Accepting Merge Request have some relevant code links to get you jump started, https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitter/webapp/issues?label_name%5B%5D=Accepting+merge+requests
:point_up: December 2, 2018 8:37 AM @cbj4074 I don't have reference to the messages you are responding to but there is a ghost user feature when deleting your account, https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitter/webapp/blob/develop/docs/accounts.md#ghost-user

@MadLittleMods
:point_up: December 2, 2018 8:55 AM @pdurbin We are focused on the SaaS experience, gitter.im. Self installations is not a route we plan to support but people are free to run their own. There have been a few people who have jumped into it and used the Docker-ized development version
:point_up: December 2, 2018 6:01 PM @vi gitlab-org/gitter/webapp#1993 probably best tracks a proper place for user/notification settings
@vi Merge request welcome to better describe where to find the notification defaults at the moment
Philip Durbin
@pdurbin
Ok. So the term you use is "self installation" and you don't plan to support it. Good to know. No issue to track. No epic. Not on the roadmap. Thanks!
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods
@pdurbin You can track gitlab-org/gitter/webapp#254
Philip Durbin
@pdurbin
Oh! Thanks.
Is there a list of self installations?
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods
@pdurbin No, and I assume most of them are probably internal to their own networks
Philip Durbin
@pdurbin
Ok, thanks!
