We are currently evaluating the plugin(s) below:
Mattermost Calling is developed by Mattermost, which enables users to start and join voice calls in a channel. We are currently working on setting it up on the test server.
What we have evaluated:
Mattermost Coffeebot is a bot that aims at pairing users in your Minerva Messenger team to meet up. The channel and frequency of these pairings can be configured. However, we would not recommend this plugin because:
- In general, this plugin is relatively old, and there have been no updates since 2019 nor bundles to install.
- This plugin was developed based on the old API(v4), so it might not be compatible with the current Mattermost version.
- Compared to Mattermost plugins, implementing the Coffee Bot requires setting it up as a separate service. In this way, an extra virtual machine and a docker container are necessary.
Anonymous and the Mattermost E2EE plugin by Quaekslab are two end-to-end encryption plugins that enable user-side encryption for messages sent over private and public channels. Compared to Anonymous, the slash commands of the Mattermost E2EE plugin can be more easily operated. Hence, we released this plugin with the system upgrade in May 2022.
