Whapp-Deltachat is a bridge between WhatsApp and Deltachat. It uses
go-deltachat respectively to map verified
deltachat groups to whatsapp conversations. It is currently not full-featured and most
likely is ridden with bugs, but pretty usable. Use at your own risk
- A system that go-deltachat will run on. It should work on all systems that are supported by golang and libdeltachat, but the static object file that is distributed with go-deltachat has been compiled on an amd64 linux system, so for other architectures you will need to compile the lib yourself.
- An Android or iOS device that is capable of running the WhatsApp mobile app. go-whatsapp uses the WhatsApp Web API, so when you use this bridge you will still need to have a device that is running WhatsApp somewhere.
There are no stable releases as of yet, so the only installation method right now is just installing from source.
# clone git clone email@example.com:hugot/whapp-deltachat.git # build cd ./whapp-deltachat go build . cp ./config.yml.example ./config.yml # Now edit the config.yml file "$EDITOR" ./config.yml # Finally, run the program. ./whapp-deltachat ./config.yml
During the first time the program runs, there are two QR codes that need to be scanned: First, the program will print a QR code to stdout. Scan this QR code from your deltachat client to become a verified contact of the bridge. The bridge will then create a verified chat with you and send you a QR code to scan from your WhatsApp mobile app. When you have done this, the bridge will start doing it's thing.
Known bug during first run
The first time that the bridge runs it will receive a lot of messages at the same time and not in chronological order. This means that pre-existing WhatsApp messages will not be in chronological order when they appear in your deltachat client. New messages received while the bridge is running will of course arrive in chronological order.
