Enter the Matrix · Brendan Abolivier
Today I want to tell you about one of my favorite decentralised free software projects right now: Matrix. Let’s get things straight first, I’m talking about neither the science-fiction franchise, nor the nightclub in Berlin. Matrix is a protocol for decentralised, federated and secure communications, created and maintained by New Vector, a company split between London, UK and Rennes, France (which I joined for an internship in London during the last summer). It’s based on RESTful HTTP/JSON APIs, documented in open specifications, and is designed to be usable for anything that requires real-time-ish communications, from instant messaging to IoT. Some people are also experimenting with using Matrix for blogs, RSS reader, and other stuff that’s quite far from what you’d expect to see with such a project. Despite that, however, it’s currently mainly used for instant messaging, especially through the Riot client (which is also developed by New Vector).
