I want to be able to chat with people on IRC on-the-go. Since my Fairphone is powered by Android I would likely need an app for that. After the upgrade to Android 6 I installed Riot, a client for Matrix.
A Pirate party member from Finland gently explained to me how to join a room on IRC or Gitter from inside Rior. I want to share this knowledge with you:
/join #freenode_#sabayon:matrix.org /join #gitter_sabayon=2Fcommunity-repositories:matrix.org
The first one connects to
Freenode using the
matrix.org node. Since matrix.org is down sometimes due to overcrowding it would be preferable to use another instance.
The second one connects to
Sabayon/community-repositories on Gitter via matrix.org. The
=2F is no typo, but needed.
