This means that if I add a new device to my list of devices, I can verify that device using one of my other devices which have already been set up. This allows me to add as many devices I want, mark them as trusted from my own devices, and other people won’t need to individually verify each of the devices that I add. weechat-matrix doesn’t have this which means I pretty much have to do a <code>/olm verify * *</code> unless I want to sit there for an hour verifying everyone’s devices individually.</p> <p>Furthermore, it seems that the connection to my matrix server randomly drops out about every dozen minutes or so. It always reconnects in about 10 seconds but it’s a bit annoying when you’re sending a series of messages and all of a sudden you can’t. It seems that to fix this I’d have to <a href="https://github.com/poljar/weechat-matrix/issues/123">enable HTTP/2 connections on my Matrix server and reverse proxy</a> which I don’t particularly care to do.</p> <p>Also, uploading and downloading files is a huge pain in the butt. It has to be done through helper scripts which is far less convenient than just seeing the file or being able to type a quick command such as <code>upload ~/image.png</code> or <code>download secret_codes.txt</code> from within the WeeChat window.</p> -<p>Anyhow, a complete rewrite of weechat-matrix is coming in the form of <a href="https://github.com/poljar/weechat-matrix-rs">weechat-matrix-rs</a>, a Rust implementation as a <em>plugin</em> instead of a series of <em>scripts</em> this will allow much better integration and much more powerful stuff like device cross-signing to be done.</p> +<p>Anyhow, a complete rewrite of weechat-matrix is coming in the form of <a href="https://github.com/poljar/weechat-matrix-rs">weechat-matrix-rs</a>, a Rust implementation as a WeeChat <em>plugin</em> instead of a series of WeeChat <em>scripts</em>.
