NeoChat – KDE matrix client

NeoChat is a Matrix client. It allows you to send text messages, videos and audio files to your family, colleagues and friends using the Matrix protocol.

Matrix is a decentralized communication protocol, putting the user back in control. Currently NeoChat implements a large part of the protocol with the exception of encrypted chats and video chat.

NeoChat works both on mobile and desktop while providing a consistent user experience.

This program utilizes libQuotient library and some C++ models from Quaternion.

This program is a fork of Spectral.

Features include:

  • Sending messages.
  • Sending files from clipboard and filesystem.
  • Reply to message (right-click on a message to access menu).
  • Start a private chat (but not encrypted).
  • Show notifications, for the moment there is only a global switch to disable it.
  • Autocompletion of usernames in chat.
  • Emoji picker.
  • Basic room setting page.
  • Send and accept invitations.
  • /rainbow (very important).
  • /me.
  • Basic image editor that lets you crop and rotate images before sending them. The image editor is provided by a small library called KQuickImageEditor.
  • Internationalization support – translations for English, Ukrainian, Swedish, Spanish, Portuguese, Hungarian, French, Dutch, Catalan (Valencian), Catalan, British English, Italian, Norwegian Nynorsk, and Slovenian.
