Wire has been talking about open-sourcing their server code in 2017, but now it seems they’re actually doing it.

What is the Wire CLI?
whoops… I thought that https://github.com/wireapp/coax was CLI. It is not! I have edited the table…
Where is the Signal server code to be found?
Found it: https://github.com/WhisperSystems/Signal-Server
Their Rust implementation looks promising.
I’m looking for something to replace sendmail on my server. I want stuff like cron to send me notifications encrypted.
Wire is very tempting, extremely tempting. But, the thought of convincing friends and family to install and make a profile on yet another messaging service is a task I and many other techies are tired of doing.
I’m a bit hyped up about this at the moment. If Wire keeps looking as attractive as it does currently, I’ll probably move all my family and friends I can over to it from the other networks.
