Chats are cleary a very efficient way to share knowledge. This raises the question of their positioning with respect to wikis. In the XWiki ecosystem, the Hubot application makes it already possible to send notifications from a wiki to chat rooms, and to search a wiki from a chat. However, more features could be think of, and possibly a tighter integration with some specific chat systems, be it Matrix, Slack, IRC or others.
I’m starting this thread to gather ideas on how you’d like to interact with XWiki from a chat, and with a chat from XWiki, and also to gather user experiences you may like in existing solutions. As you may know, XWiki SAS is currently developing a Slack application which will be an open source paid app.
What is your vision? How would you like to work with chat rooms and XWiki together?
