The first public draft of the Euphony Protocol (temporary name) has been released.

The Euphony Protocol is a chat protocol designed for easy implementation and federation, heavily inspired by Discord. It is still somewhat work-in-progress, but it should be fully polished in a couple of months.

I've been working on this for the past 2 months, and it's finally somewhat finished. Keep in mind I have no prior protocol-writing experience.

This is just the beggining.

this is what i've been teasing 2 days ago. enjoy.

i really didn't expect this to get so much attention. this release was incredibly rushed lol

@knuxify i'm gonna try to implement this on darkpi, thanks!

(Zero idea how to do this, either, so bear with me as I figure it out...)

@knuxify > ⚠ Don't send IDs to the remote server that aren't supposed to go it!

already better thought out than Mastodon

@knuxify ooh. possibly interested in writing a fast Java server&client for this when it's more stable rather than inventing my own protocol like I'd planned
