really interesting idea a "Cjojure" solution would also increase visibility even more

jreedmoore02:10:12

Om React Native slack lookalike would be neat

chris03:10:15

Clojure solution would be great.

chris03:10:23

Would love to get involved

agile_geek06:10:18

@gjnoonan: @chris: The #C08P6MXC7 group are already building a simple event management system but we are not very far into it. Perhaps we should redirect our energies to a Slack replacement instead?

maleghast06:10:14

@agile_geek: @gjnoonan @chris - I have clearly missed something… Is the Slack account / channel for Clojure under threat in some way..?

agile_geek06:10:20

@maleghast: see posts about reactiflux above.

gjnoonan06:10:15

@agile_geek sounds good, I think further discussion is needed! An Event management system is something that could be on the clojurians site also 😉

gjnoonan06:10:45

I've created a #C0CB40N8K channel if anyone wants to join and discuss how we could develop a new site, and applications for our community.

maleghast06:10:17

@agile_geek: Ah I see, sorry - probably could have figured that out for myself (facepalm)… Still it could be a worry in the long term, so thinking about planning for an alternative makes sense.

agile_geek06:10:18

@gjnoonan: that’s why we started with that. Although the group is currently London based I’m trying to figure out a sensible way to run it remotely too…with an element of OSS project to it but it is ultimately a user group/dojo so don’t want to lose the community feel and inclusiveness.

agile_geek06:10:59

P.S. want it remote cos that way I can still join in when up in Newcastle! selfish

gjnoonan06:10:45

Sounds good simple_smile I want to create a Northern Clojurians to rival #C0522EZ9N .. but that is another topic

maleghast06:10:12

ManilaClojurians FTW - I’m the ONLY ONE! Mwahahahahaha

agile_geek06:10:48

@gjnoonan: I’m up for that…East Yorkshire is just about Northern 😉

maleghast06:10:31

East Yorkshire is definitely Nothern - I’ve been to Scarborough and Whitby 😉

agile_geek06:10:38

..but we will then have that awkward discussion about when the midlands stop and the north starts!

gjnoonan06:10:14

Below yorkshire is the midlands 😛

maleghast06:10:25

The North starts at the Staffordshire / Cheshire border, Midlands to the South, The North to the North 😉

agile_geek06:10:38

@gjnoonan: 👍

gjnoonan06:10:02

I am on the border of North and east yorkshire, so maybe I could say North East too @agile_geek ? haha

agile_geek06:10:22

@maleghast: you’re on the wrong side of the country there!

maleghast06:10:04

@agile_geek: Says you! 😉

maleghast06:10:44

@agile_geek: I mean, right now I’m in The Philippines, so I don’t really have a leg to stand on, but it’s the Red Rose of Lancashire that’s tatooed on my soul simple_smile

gjnoonan06:10:01

Nay lad, thy be talking fighting words there

gjnoonan06:10:23

Right, best start the commute.. Late

agile_geek06:10:57

Not sure why I’m arguing about the North…as someone from a Welsh family, born in London, who grew up in East Anglia and has lived in NE for 30 years…who knows where my allegiances are!?

maleghast07:10:22

@agile_geek: I know what you mean, Lancashire may be the home of my soul, but until my wife and I put our stuff in storage and moved our little family to The Philippines I had been living in the SE for 12 years!

agile_geek07:10:53

@rbf I am not sure it’s as clear cut as them not wanting to support, the comments make it sound like they have limited resources and are focusing them on paying customers…which you might expect. Not sure if that may change in future but you’re right, it’s a shame.

nodename17:10:03

Here as in IRC, as traffic increases, it gets harder to track overlapping conversations. I'd like to see threads in the interface.

jcsims17:10:56

zulip is open source now, and supports threads: https://www.zulip.org

juhoteperi17:10:47

Zulip looks really good

martinklepsch19:10:38

I’d like to use Zulip just to try how threading works out, definitely agree that threading is an option for chat apps that hasn’t been explored enough

martinklepsch19:10:51

I once wrote down some ideas for a chat app with threading as first class mechanism but never really had the time to make it into something usable: http://www.martinklepsch.org/chaf.html — feedback/thoughts welcome

juhoteperi19:10:42

Flowdock has threading at works really well

martinklepsch19:10:20

yeah I’ve heard about that, some people stated that they sticked to flowdock vs slack because of that.

martinklepsch19:10:34

Slack also stated that they are working on adding threading. That said it can also clutter an interface I guess.

afhammad19:10:59

We use flowdock and love it, i was shocked to see slack doesnt have threads

juhoteperi19:10:12

Yeah, I like it definitively better for (small) company use but wouldn't work for large communities

juhoteperi19:10:34

Message tagging is also very useful feature, it works like a company wide link list for us

bensu20:10:19

@martinklepsch: cool ideas and wireframe

bensu20:10:26

one typo in "can is"

bensu20:10:10

I guess it would be hard to get Conclusions. Who would have the "authority" to say, this is the last word on the subject?

martinklepsch20:10:23

@bensu: thanks, fixed

martinklepsch20:10:12

@bensu: I imagined conclusions to be wiki-like assuming no bad-intending actors. tbh I think there are many rough edges that need to be worked out by actual usage.

bensu20:10:45

Oh, I misunderstood Conclusions. It's not that somebody comments and declares it a conclusion. Is that somebody decides "we can wrap up", and then people can chime in

bensu20:10:48

sounds reasonable
