MSC2299: Proposal to add m.textfile msgtype #2299
Half-Shot left a comment
I think the need for the ability to send files over Matrix and have them preview-able inline is useful, but I think this proposal is the wrong approach. This will require a new message type which will replace functionality in an existing type and break client support.
Furthermore, I believe a lot of the issues raised in this PR are issues with Riot rather than issues with the specification. The authors concerns could actually be largely solved with the ability to save codeblocks in Riot for example.
My counter solution that would not break existing functionality in clients but still allow a preview would just to add a preview field to the existing file type.
Honestly, I believe this proposal is glaring proof for the need of extensible events.
