When Atlassian Hipchat shutdown/moved everyone to slack, I evaluated Matrix and Mattermost. I did prefer Matrix because of Federation, but Mattermost won out because it had more out of the box integration with our dev tooling - Jira, Gitlab, CI, etc…

I don’t think Mattermost has E2E encryption, only “encryption in transit” and “encryption at rest”, would probably make it difficult for public room search/indexing etc so maybe outside it’s use case?

I tested it extensively. It is nice overall, but artificially made bad in a few critical places (ACL for managing channels for example) to sell the enterprise version. Ultimately I decided to use something else because of that.

There was some talk about making a true community driven fork as opposed to this open-core demo, but I guess there are enough alternatives.

Agreed. I still run a mattermost instance for a few people, but if I wanted like a “community” there I’d absolutely need some of the Enterprise features.

Are there any advantages of mattermost in comparison to matrix?

Its probably better for communities, as it has shared roles and all that, and the fact that its self hostable is already a one up on discord… but matrix being federated, and having a whole ecosystem of clients and services makes it better overall.

All about open source! Feel free to ask questions, and share news, and interesting stuff!
