Project status

This project is a work in progress and doesn't do much yet. It can connect to a Matrix server and send messages.

If you are interested in helping out take a look at the issue tracker.


After Rust is installed the plugin can be compiled with:

cargo build

On Linux this creates a file in the target/debug/ folder, this file needs to be renamed to and copied to your Weechat plugin directory. A plugin directory can be created in your $WEECHAT_HOME folder, by default .weechat/plugins/.

Alternatively, make install will build and install the plugin in your $WEECHAT_HOME as well.
