Is there a free noob and phone-friendly way to get a persistent IRC client running? How can I possibly get my friends off of WhatsApp?


@hund What's the status of XMPP vs. Matrix nowadays?

I can't really recommend Matrix either, there's no good CLI client and Riot has usability issues. I'd expect XMPP to have a better CLI stories, but how are the phone apps?

@ayo XMPP is by far less bloated. And setting up a server is very easy. :)

Conversations for Android and.. ChatSecure and/or Monal for Ios? I don't use Ios myself, so I don't know how good they are.

@hund It's been ages since I last used XMPP. Guess I'm going to give that a try again. :)
