I'm presuming from the long string of unanswered issues and the lack of commits to the code that this is a dead project? As such, I'm adding it to a list I of abandoned web-based chat software I maintain, in case the code is informative to active or new projects:

If I am wrong, and Candy is still being actively maintained, please let me know.

@strypey Adhearsion and all of its dependencies are still in use for several large projects, and is being used for new projects by the likes of @lpradovera, who is maintaining it, but it is not as active as it used to be.

I've been considering moving to Mattermost for my private chat service platform.

There really doesn't seem to be a high level XMPP web ui available these days (I last did market research about 6 mo ago). Everything has weird UI/UX decisions or are dead as well.

@lkraav and anyone else interested,
I am curating a list of web-based chat apps that are free code software, with the primary goal of helping people find self-hostable, user-respecting replacements for Slack, and figure out wich ones is most suitable for their use case. Any additions, corrections, and other feedback is most welcome:
https://www.coactivate.org/projects/disintermedia/slacking-off/

For those particularly interested in federated systems, I encourage you to check out the Matrix federation protocol, which is a web-native alternative to XMPP, and potentially easier to write web clients for:
