I have talk enabled, and XMPP chat. I like to use Pidgin during the day, which is a multi-protocol IM client. I also see that there are lots of clients for Matrix, which apparently integrates with Nextcloud.
My question is this: if I want my friends or colleagues to communicate with me using Nextcloud, I’d like to offer something other than the browser interface. I don’t know how likely it is that a lot of people would leave the nextcloud tab open in their browser. They would, however, use an IM client.
There is a Matrix plugin for Pidgin, but I wasn’t able to get it to connect to my instance. I also couldn’t get XMPP to connect. Are there any tutorials out there, or suggestions on how I would do this?
