Mattermost module

Yes I want to revive this topic because we have a new package to test, with Mattermost 5.12 freshly backed by @giacomo.

Who wants to test it?

  1. new install:
    yum --enablerepo=nethserver-testing install nethserver-mattermost

  2. update
    yum --enablerepo=nethserver-testing update nethserver-mattermost

OK, I was really thinking, NS is a stable super complete Server, but I have to say, putting Mattermost into it is genius. I love it and we already use it in production.
Thank you so much for your work.
Another great job done.

But Rocket Chat has LDAP Integration and i think that it has all the mattermost features.

What do you consider to have mattermost than rocket chat no?

@uebmaster
I think there is not that much difference. Both applications will ‘do the job’ as a corporate communications tool. I’d love to see a rocketchat module for NethServer. If you want you could try to install it and please document your steps so more members can try.

i am noob, I saw that some people contribute modules but really do not know how they do it, it’s just a matter of installing the software as you normally would or is there some kind of specific syntax of the nethserver distro?

Trying to install and tell here what you encounter is a first start. There are many howto’s already on the internet that lead you to install rocjketchat on centos7 (the OS that NethServer is built on)
Try to follow those install howto’s and see if you can get rocketchat working on NethServer.
I would suggest to use a virtual ebvironment so you can take snapshots (images) of your virtual server before you change anything. If something goes wrong, you can easily roll back. Even on a regular pc with Virtualbox or VMWare workstation (whatever virtualization solution you like or have) it is perfectly possible to do this.
Be aware we are talking about installing the SERVER part of rocketchat, not the client software where you actuialy chat with.
The official install howto: https://rocket.chat/docs/installation/manual-installation/centos/

Just to point to a few options. There are many more.
