Kaidan – modern chat app

Kaidan is a simple, user-friendly and modern chat client. It uses the open communication protocol XMPP (Jabber).

The user interface makes use of Kirigami and QtQuick, while the back-end of Kaidan is entirely written in C++ using Qt and the Qt-based XMPP library QXmpp.

Kaidan does not have all basic features yet and has still some stability issues.

Features include:

  • Audio messages – send audio messages for an easier and more personal conversation.
  • Video messages – send short video messages to capture a moment and let your contacts experience it with you.
  • File sharing – share files with your chat partners when you need to work together.
