Pallium is an experimental golang homeserver implementation for the Matrix.org standard.
Matrix is a new open standard for interoperable Instant Messaging and VoIP, providing pragmatic HTTP APIs and open source reference implementations for creating and running your own real-time communication infrastructure.
To get up and running:
# get the latest Go from https://golang.org/dl/ # and define a GOPATH for your Go workspace if you don't have one already: export GOPATH=~/go mkdir -p $GOPATH # grab the latest pallium with all its dependencies: go get github.com/KoFish/pallium # set up a default config cd $GOPATH/github.com/KoFish/pallium cp config.json.dist config.json # edit the hostname param in config.json to specify how the server # should refer to itself and expect to be accessed from the internet # (use localhost for local experimentation) # set the server running. This will create a local sqlite db for storage # and start listening for traffic. $GOPATH/bin/pallium
To use the server, select a client from matrix.org. For instance, to use the webclient hosted at https://matrix.org/beta against your new server, just specify the URL of your pallium server (e.g. http://localhost:8008) as the "Home Server" parameter on the login and registration pages rather than http://matrix.org. You do not need to enter the captcha, as pallium does not support captcha-based registration yet.
Currently pallium does not support the full Matrix API set, so the webclient may well not work correctly
Alternatively, to run your own webclient:
git clone http://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-angular-sdk
...and follow the instructions in syweb/webclient/README
