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

        whoops… I thought that https://github.com/wireapp/coax was CLI. It is not! I have edited the table…

        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.
