Element for YunoHost
This package allows you to install Element quickly and simply on a YunoHost server. If you don't have YunoHost, please consult the guide to learn how to install it.
Element is a new type of messaging app. You choose where your messages are stored, putting you in control of your data. It gives you access to the Matrix open network, so you can talk to anyone. Element provides a new level of security, adding cross-signed device verification to default end-to-end encryption.
Shipped version: 1.11.8~ynh1
Disclaimers / important information
YunoHost specific features
This application support the SSO. If you want to use the SSO, you need to define the path to the default homeserver as your homeserver witch is installed on your YunoHost instance.
Important Security Note
We do not recommend running Element from the same domain name as your Matrix homeserver (Synapse). The reason is the risk of XSS (cross-site-scripting) vulnerabilities that could occur if someone caused Element to load and render malicious user generated content from a Matrix API which then had trusted access to Element (or other apps) due to sharing the same domain.
We have put some coarse mitigations into place to try to protect against this situation, but it's still not good practice to do it in the first place. See vector-im/element-web#1977 for more details.
