looks like a decent alternative to mcabber, but I really hope this trend of “git clone and run a mystery shell script” ends soon. we have trusted build systems and package distribution systems; we should use them.
That’s for running the developer branch only. Linux Distributions and *BSDs have it packaged.
Yeah. I was going to build it because I didn’t know if it was in the repos of my distribution (Fedora), however I found that it was.
Most package distribution systems assume root (except for a few such as Nix variants and pkgsrc AFAIK). I don’t see why I should prefer such a distribution especially when the intent is to try it out first.
mcabber. Never heard of it. I can check it out but since I am becoming accustomed to poezio Idk.
I see they look similar hence I will probably stay with poezio.
You mean like these package distribution systems?
