Welcome to the Functional Programming Zulip Chat Archive. You can join the chat here.
Yet another chat service. Yeeeeeee:sunglasses:
This one is different though :stuck_out_tongue_wink:
JK, we have message history here compared to Slack :slight_smile:
I hope so :) If you want all FP related talks to be only in this chat your only option is to close all others :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:
Otherwise we should create aggregator like reddit but for chats:upside_down:
Yeah, Slack monetization model sucks. Sell to YOU YOURS history! This is insane, I think
So we now have IRC, Slack and Zulip. I think diversity is good. Each channel has its own flavour of FP programmers hanging out. For example, Cale hangs out only in #haskell channel in IRC.
Actually there is also keybase chat group: https://keybase.io/team/haskellers
you're forgetting Discord
which we also have
Link to discord?
But I really hope that folks at Slack gradually migrate over. The loss of conversation history is an annoying problem. Slack was created for enterprises, not open source communities.
Nuff said :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:
@Sridhar Ratnakumar Absolutely - I was bitten by this multiple times and don't want to be anymore
@fotonmoton Discord, Gitter and Telegram are really about quick Q&A - we don't have any thread/topic-like functionality here
I also think diversity is good, and I can manage few chat apps but slack is straight bad with it history about history :grimacing:
And if you really don't want to use one more mobile app, Zulip works in mobile browsers too, which is pretty cool
I use Rambox to keep all under 1 window
I know people have adverity to change but some concerns presented against zulip are.... unfathomable
@TheMatten agree about telegram and gitter, they more like irc. Discord also has functionality for dividing conversations, not threads like zulip but nevertheless
@fotonmoton It's channels are equivalent to streams here - topics here add one more layer of "division" that's useful for concrete discussions
@TheMatten never feel uncomfortable without topics inside channels, but maybe will help someone not to loose thread of discussion
In Discord, it's very hard for me to catch up with conversation that happened while I was offline - there's a lot of comments in every channel discussing bunch of things at the same time, so I usually just give up
With interface that separates different topics, I can read through those that I'm interested in and ignore the others
Hm. I think zulip is like real time forum. At least this is interesting idea. If you then could extract useful messages into another topic/channel/docs it can be handy information preserving tool!
Real question is "should there be Random stream with 'more random' and 'less random' topics":thinking:
Do you ever send emails to your boss with subject "Random"? :smiley:
Random topics created here are equivalent to situations when you put no subject line into your email, simply because you don't expect any big conversation to come out of it
Zulip looks great! I just wish it had an actual native desktop client like Telegram
That one's pretty cool, though I actually ended up using it's web version anyway - one less app to install on my computer
I really like telegram. To me, it's more akin to a replacement for text messaging though
