@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

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

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

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

Hi. I just found out, that if I made an integration with Gitlab repo, mentioning and issue number with # actually is redirecting me to github instead of gitlab. I cannot find any setting that could fix that. Is there anything like it or it is a known bug (if yes, anyone knows the issue that is tracking this bug)?
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods
@Andrzej2_gitlab You can track gitlab-org/gitter/services#83

@Andrzej2_gitlab
@MadLittleMods wow...this is a 3 years old issue...so I guess it is going to take a long time. Damn. Thanks anyway.

@viktomas
@Andrzej2_gitlab "GitLab based communities/rooms" are next on our roadmap so the wait is not going to be too long. Mind you the dates are slipping a bit since we temporarily shifted our focus on stability (security and bugs).
Andrzej Bakun
@Andrzej2_gitlab
@viktomas Ok, great. Thanks for quick anwsers. Will be waiting impatiently.

@omento_gitlab
@MadLittleMods That is quite the small team, I didn't realize that! Hopefully it expands at some point, Gitter really could be something.

hello there
wondering if the iOS is still is beta or something ? The number of weird behavior seems out of the usual
like the last msg displayed changed if i close / reopen
or the fact that the app scrolls back in time like month ago and if i manually go to latest msg it jumps even before
or when i just send a msg
mot when i type a message but the textbox it self reach the "line wrap" the thread goes black by a month
or the fact that trying to edit a msg trigger a validation when i try to insert a new line
all that together make it almost impossible to just read conversions on going as the app keeps going to very old msg
i'm wondering if the app cache is not corrupted but that would not explain all of these behavior
TeBeCo
@tebeco
what kind of info can i provide so it can help dev teams to take a look at what's going on ?
anyway i can dump the app cache / local logs / diagnostics ?

@MadLittleMods

@tebeco Overall there are some thoughts of deprecating the mobile apps, gitlab-org/gitter/webapp#2281

Feel free to create an issue for each of the bugs I couldn't find an existing issue for, https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitter/gitter-ios-app/issues

  • Missing/order of last message: I can't find an existing iOS issue. There is a related Android one, gitlab-org/gitter/gitter-android-app#2
  • Scroll jumping back in time (new bug with iOS 13), gitlab-org/gitter/gitter-ios-app#44
  • Typing a long message jumping the "thread"/(scroll) back: probably related to the bug above ^
  • Insert a newline when editing a message throws validation error: I can't find an existing iOS issue

There has been some recent work put into fixing up the iOS app from a community member. You can track, gitlab-org/gitter/gitter-ios-app!8

TeBeCo
@tebeco
regarding deprecating the app ... well
i hope you're thinking PWA, installable on the phone because a tab in the browser is just the complete opposite usage of a mobile
no notification / hard to track in the middle of other tabs
(the desktop app would love shortcut like Ctrl+K in slack to jump through all unread msg fast)

hello guys, trying to recreate my room using the same name after deletion with no luck. anyone can help?
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods
:point_up: October 6, 2019 2:24 PM @tebeco PWA is what we were thinking, https://gitlab.com/groups/gitlab-org/-/epics/386

:point_up: October 6, 2019 2:24 PM @tebeco I always think of Ctrl + K as the room switcher, gitlab-org/gitter/webapp#1915

Here are some related issues but feel free to create a new one with this specific shortcut feature, https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitter/webapp/issues

:point_up: October 6, 2019 2:33 PM @mathpaquette A community can't be deleted but a room can. If you deleted the only room in the community, the community still exists. You may have trouble finding it in your create room modal, so send an email to support@gitter.im and we can create a dummy room for you

Here are the docs for creating a community/room,

TeBeCo
@tebeco
@MadLittleMods the github link you sent regarding Ctrl+K points to github and is 404 (you're using gitlab now right ?)
ok gitter ios app is converting it to github issue link
that's a hell of a bug ^^
Mathieu Paquette
@mathpaquette
@MadLittleMods thanks it worked.

@MadLittleMods
:point_up: October 6, 2019 3:54 PM @tebeco This is fixed https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitter/webapp/issues/1985/ but we need to re-ship the assets again for iOS. The release there is blocked https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitter/gitter-ios-app/merge_requests/6/ but there is some recent movement their from a community member, https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitter/gitter-ios-app/merge_requests/8/

I'm trying to use the desktop Gitter client on my Linux workstation, but every time I launch it, it asks for permission to access my account, and when I click "allow", I get a 404 error. I'm able to use the web gitter client, and the desktop MacOS client. The system in question is behind a proxy with SSL interception, which I suspect is related, though I don't have to do anything special on my MacOS machine for it to work.
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods

@ehermes You might see a 404 after it redirects back to https://gitter.im/login/desktop/callback which does 404 but there is a hook that should pick up that request and store the token and move forward, https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitter/desktop/blob/f9e74fba8bf55b008f7f81557f54d76a48fd9e03/nwapp/lib/login-view.js#L75-109

If you open the devtools from the "Gitter" menu, do you see any errors? I suspect you don't see this menu yet though so you may have to remotely debug, --remote-debugging-port=port. Then visit http://localhost:1234

/usr/local/bin/gitter --remote-debugging-port=1234
@ehermes If you don't want to do any debugging, you can try to authorize manually, https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitter/desktop#manually-sign-inauthorize
Eric Hermes
@ehermes
The 404 is for a url that start https://gitter.im/login/desktop/callback/code=
so, I suspect you are correct
Thanks, authorizing manually seems to have worked

@nsuchy
Will the iPhone app ever get an update for newer screen sizes?
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods

@nsuchy You can track gitlab-org/gitter/gitter-ios-app#3

We just need to get a new release out gitlab-org/gitter/gitter-ios-app!6 but it has some blockers at the moment. There is some movement from the community to address them though, gitlab-org/gitter/gitter-ios-app!8
