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?

: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
@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.

: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.

@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

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

sorry for the delay, i’ve had man-flu (terminal) this week

@puremourning No worries, get well soon 😁

@MadLittleMods I got the invite to testflight, it's immediately crashing on iPhone XS Max 13.2 beta. Don't know if the data it's sending in the crash report is at all helpful. Tried uninstalling app and reinstalling through testflight, same deal
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods

@ftab @puremourning Is also seeing the same thing. They give a crashlog.crash which is probably useful. Uploaded them to the release issue, https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitter/gitter-ios-app/merge_requests/6#note_229471841

Thanks for the heads-up!

@MadLittleMods Chrome has this new feature called TrustedWebActivity. It lets your Android app be exactly the same as your mobile Website (which gives you full-fledged browser support instead of a limited Webview, push notifications and all that). Consider switching the Android app to that? I think it will improve the experience with less maintenance on Android. I could help with this if needed. We just need to remove all Java/Kotlin code, make some changes in the Manifest and set up a link between the site and the app (via Asset Links).
It's a big architecture decision (going all-in on Web instead of native Android code). We did this for one of our work apps, and have been happy with it so far.
Eric Eastwood
@MadLittleMods

@eshnil :+1: This is the plan for the future, see gitlab-org/gitter/webapp#1992

Feel free to make a comment on the issue with your praise for TrustedWebActivity and experience :slight_smile:

Hi folks, just set up a room and can't see how to integrate with Gitlab repo, any help?
Tomas
@viktomas
@dmitriz You associate the room with a GitHub repo during the room creation https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitter/webapp/blob/develop/docs/rooms.md#room-creation . Please let us know if the docs helped

How do I change my display name in Gitter?
Tomas
@viktomas
Tobias Markus
@tobbi_gitlab
Ah, okay, thanks.
It's a shame that the display name can't be different in gitter from the gitlab settings.
Tomas
@viktomas
Just for a reference, you can track gitlab-org/gitter/webapp#1851. We are going to be focusing on better GitLab integration in the near future and this might be part of the epic (even though right now it's part of an epic for allowing users to have multiple identity providers).

Is there anyway to get rid the menu? It damages the UI pretty hard.
Tomas
@viktomas
@starlight-tu_gitlab Is that the windows desktop client?
Star Light
@starlight-tu_gitlab
@viktomas Yeah, latest version (4.1.0)
Tomas
@viktomas
@starlight-tu_gitlab currently there isn't a way to hide the menu, you can track gitlab-org/gitter/desktop#255
Star Light
@starlight-tu_gitlab
@viktomas I see, thanks.

@dmitriz
Hi folks
any help with HTML badges to Gitter rooms (instead of Markdown)?
Tomas
@viktomas
@dmitriz you can convert the markdown to HTML for example here https://www.browserling.com/tools/markdown-to-html
Dmitri Zaitsev
@dmitriz
@viktomas Thank you!

Does anyone here use Gitter for Ubuntu/Linux x64?
Mine request password everytime open it. Weird :p

I'm installing Ubutnu and will try to reproduce @starlight-tu_gitlab. Thanks for reporting the issue.
Tomas
@viktomas
@starlight-tu_gitlab I can't reproduce the error. Can you please create an issue in https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitter/desktop/issues with steps to reproduce?
