Entered the matrix: an open self-hosted messaging service

A dream comes true. I had to wait for years for this moment but finally I found what I searched for. Finally I can run my own chatserver. And even more: it’s secure, has a distributed architecture and the most important thing: I own my data.

I’m a bit sceptical when it comes to tools that magically do everything for you, especially if I already have an elaborated way for doing that stuff on my own. Let’s encrypt is one of those tools and I first thought, we will never become friends, but it seems that locking it in a docker container started a solid relationship.
