GNU Jami (Signal/WhatsApp/Telegram replacement)


I never changed my mind. End-to-End encryption is NOT on by default. The other article says the same.
You have to use secret chats for End-to-End to be enabled. Server-side encryption is on by default but server-side is NOT secure because anyone who has access to servers has access to encryption keys.
So the facts have not changed. Cheers. :sunglasses:


Ah, see, now that you’re being specific we can be on the same page. It was a long road, but you made it, like I knew you would. Well done!


Interestingly enough I mentioned the same thing earlier in the conversation. I supposed it was you who finally got on the same sheet of music. Rephrasing it did help you finally understand. So the well done goes to you :wink: Glad that it was you…who made it. Moving on :sunglasses:


I’m no match for your terrible memory


I’m sure that was it. Moving on


You keep saying that. Or will you admit that that’s also not true?


In reference to SMS syncing, because of the complexity it has always seemed that most messengers and VOIP services elected to operate separately. Do you see that changing in time or because of how complex that is will Jami will just continue to progress on it’s current direction?


Would crowd funding help with you funding more developers to help you be worth a shot?

Not my call, but don’t think so. Jami is done by a company

Do you see that changing in time or because of how complex that is will Jami will just continue to progress on it’s current direction?

For now, it’s not planned at all. But who knows, if it’s really needed this can change (but imho, not before a long time). Also, all is free software, so if anybody wants to do a client with both SMS and Jami messages, it’s doable.


Have you had any luck using Jami on the QEMU image? Do you have any further suggestions?


Hello @Seven, I didn’t test it further yet. For further tracking of possible improvements for Jami on smaller screens, I would open an issue on savoirfairelinux/jami-client-gnome as soon as I find the time.

EDIT: Sorry, didn’t remember this thread correctly and thought that you were one of the developers of Jami. What did you want to know about the current state of Jami on the phone?


Hello @Kareema actually @AmarOk1412 is a developer of Jami. You can direct anything you have towards him when it comes to any specific issues or on their mastodon page.

What I was curious about was how well did it function on the phone? How did the UI look and work once you were logged in? What was the scaling like and how did that affect usability on the phone? Whenever you have time I imagine we would enjoy any feedback you can provide. Thanks :slight_smile:


@AmarOk1412 where can I see the libhandy adaption project? is merged in the gnome client one?


it’s in my private patches. It’s pretty empty right now.

No it’s not merged, my full time is taken by working on group chat or connectivity issues, the gnome client is stalled since 2 or 3 months and I don’t have the time to work on client features. The Qt client got some active devs and QML is responsive by default, so maybe it will be available even before libhandy (unless someone try to do the job before)
