This could be really useful for chat communities after Slackgate yesterday. https://twitter.com/levelsio/sta...

@lucasjgordon Slackgate? Really? I don't know why Slack would shut off that API, but I'm guessing it was probably to combat abuse/spammy behavior and/or preserve their business model...
Lucas GordonHiring@lucasjgordon · iOS Developer @ Quit Genius
@chrismessina I totally understand their reasons for making the change, but it did allow the creation of some great communities which may now need to look elsewhere.

@chrismessina @lucasjgordon I tend to agree that spam/abuse was probably the issue. I joined several communities on slack, but rarely went back to them. I'm guessing most of those communities weren't strong enough to garner many repeat visitors, but I could be wrong. Regardless, cool to see an open source version pop up. I'm sure there is a market for self hosted chats where community owners have more control.

I'm so happy with how rapidly team based messaging is improving. Almost as happy as my email inbox.

@willsamari I've been using Skype over email for team chat for years but it's great to see innovation in the space

Nice hunt. Curious if the mobile apps are native? Added to the Chat & Messaging collection: http://bit.ly/1urlQir

@pieterpaul where's it talk about them having a mobile app?
Pieter Walraven@pieterpaul · Founder & Product @ Pie - pie.co
@_jacksmith Landing page shows the app on desktop, iOS and Android. But now that I've taken a closer look at what's on the screen of the mobile devices it's the app running in a mobile browser. Cheeky ;)
Houssam Haidar@letstweetbro · Developer, SD Elements
@pieterpaul We're hoping someone, somewhere has the gusto to write one. For now it's just through the browser and not particularly good :(

Reminds me of https://gitter.im/ , except not based on github, MIT licensed, and self-hosted (which is awesome!). I need to make an excuse to use this in one of my projects now... Nice hunt!
