TWIM:

matrix-hookshot 2.3.0 arrives with more features & fanciness!

Hello all. This next release brings plenty of new features & cleanups, particularly related to configuration widgets:

  • JIRA connections may now be configured via widgets.
  • The GitHub configuration widget has been redesigned to group repositories by organization, to match the style of Dimension's GitHub config UI.
  • Configuration widgets no longer ignore the "Command Prefix" setting when saving a connection.
  • GitLab connections can now add confidential issues via the !gl create-confidential command.
  • The output of help commands has been has been reformatted to improve readability.

As usual, feel free to join #hookshot:half-shot.uk for setup advice & feedback.

@twim:cadair.comTWIM✅ Thanks for the report Andrew F, I'll store your update!13:15:58
@Half-Shot:half-shot.ukHalf-ShotThank you to Andrew for doing a swell job on the Jira widgets :)13:22:39

For now, there's only !rss <link> to which it will respond in the thread with a link and an invite to the room to whoever runs the command.
That's cool
13:58:22
@davidprieto:envs.netDavid PrietoSo, anyone can send messages to the room?14:10:40
@bram:noordstar.meBramYes. The idea is that if people want a private room without anyone sending messages, they can use other RSS bots that are already available on Matrix like @rss:maunium.net14:20:30

If this ever gets implemented, would you consider using it so that only reply can write messages, but everyone else can start threads from those messages?

I did not know there was already an MSC for it! I was actually disappointed to discover that this was not an option.

It depends on whether there's demand for it at that time. The source code is open source though, so anyone will be free to build it themselves if I'm not up for it.

"I was actually disappointed to discover that this was not an option."

Could you maybe say that in the MSC proposal? It would be useful to document real-life cases where that feature would have been wanted

@matthew:matrix.orgMatthew TWIM: Third Room documented and released its unity -> glTF export pipeline to make it easier for asset/scene creators to build worlds. The native in-world Third Room editor will come soon, but this is a great stopgap (and is how we built the worlds for Tech Preview 1). https://github.com/matrix-org/thirdroom-unity-exporter 16:21:03
@twim:cadair.comTWIM✅ Thanks for the report Matthew, I'll store your update!16:21:05
@mtrnord:midnightthoughts.spaceMTRNordJust wondering as I heard that quite a few in vrchat use unity over other methods (though I lack knowledge to know if this even has an ingame editor): Will this plugin stay when there is an ingame editor? Wondering mostly as to how otherwise the imports of external stuff from for example blender could happen :)16:23:01
@mtrnord:midnightthoughts.spaceMTRNord(though I did not follow third room at all so I am possibly missing the obvious)16:23:19

TWIM Announcing an new fully-featured email service... oh, no, wait! It's just Postmoogle v0.9.5!

At etke.cc we want to consolidate all communication into Matrix, thus our email bot-o-bridge got new release, the biggest changes are:

  • account data encryption (keys and values) - stable symmetric encryption with the passphrase you provide
  • catch-all mailboxes - email sent to any non-existing mailbox of your domain will end into the mailbox you specify (optional, can be enabled by bridge admins only).

So, it's time to start your own email provider on top of Postmoogle!

And while you're preparing your business plan, check the source code and say hi in the #postmoogle:etke.cc

@matthew:matrix.orgMatthewyeah, it will absolutely remain21:26:55
@matthew:matrix.orgMatthewthirdroom just consumes standard glTF assets21:27:05
@matthew:matrix.orgMatthewso you can create them any way you like. we're just bootstrapping by piggybacking on Unity, but could equally well author them in blender or whatever too.21:27:45
@matthew:matrix.orgMatthew the in-world editor should be really cute though, in that the plan is to store the updated glTF straight into Matrix as files in the room 21:28:03
@matthew:matrix.orgMatthewso even if you're not running TR, you'd be able to dip into the world state from a simple old Matrix bot and grab the current glTF state of what's going on21:28:21
@matthew:matrix.orgMatthewa bit like a collaborative text editor in Matrix occasionally snapshotting the doc to the media repo.21:28:36
@matthew:matrix.orgMatthew(this will probably also drive us to implement incremental file storage and reverse-diffs in the media repo, which will be useful for Matrix in general).21:28:56
