@staticsafe @wefroch have you tried #siskinim (https://siskin.im/)? It aims to fit iOS as much as possible being at the same time one of the most standards compliant app for iOS (PUSH notifications, OMEMO, audio/video calls, file upload among other things). And it's #FOSS (https://github.com/tigase/siskin-im/)
@f4m8 @xmpp_messenger "though to be fair I have not tried the others to see how they truly compare." + "if you're seriously thinking of running an XMPP server of your own, just use ejabberd" as far as comparison goes this doesn't seem to be too convincing - there is also #tigase (obviously) with all (save for MUC avatars) features conversations deem essential available by default and out of the box and #openfire, aiming for ease of use…
@microbe11 There is an older version of StorkIM (then called Tigase Android Messenger) on f-droid, but it's dated. We are working on bringing updated version to f-droid but this requires some organisational changes...
@microbe11 You can use our Android client (Stork IM): https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.tigase.messenger.phone.pro and create account on tigase.im/sure.im
@polychrome or you could use your own domain and when one server goes down you can maintain your identity on another server (there would still most likely be issue with subscription). Exactly the same problem applies to e-mail addresses...
@wiktor Yes, currently OMEMO is only supported for 1-to-1 chats. MUC omemo is on our roadmap, but we don't have currently any ETA.
@Muto all databases supported emoji without any problem... #mysql is "funny" and by default it's utf8 doesn't support emoji (i.e. 4 byte symbols in general). It requires to turn to using utf8mb4 for mysql, which requires changing in stored-procedures for that database (and it also requires changing database configuration OR forcing utf8mb4 via JDBC configuration). take a look at https://mathiasbynens.be/notes/mysql-utf8mb4 for more details.
@uvok It's Java based so you'd start with something around 100-150M. In your case it may not be the "best tool for the job" unfortunately
