This looks very nice. Is there any plans for an API/client protocol? Web client is all well and good, but I'd want to have a solid console client, as well as some command line tools (eg: "echo "Some message" | xmpp user@host -- where the equivalent for Mattermost would allow to set the topic, or message a group via a bot etc.)?

Thanks e12e!

We're working on shipping a high quality set of APIs. We're doing these in parts so we can design and document them well.

Mattermost v1.1 ships on October 16 and offers incoming webhooks as a start: http://www.mattermost.org/webhooks/

You'll find a link there to an open source sample app for customizing how you want webhook events from GitLab to appear.

Mattermost incoming webhook support ships with GitLab 8.1 on October 22.

For Mattermost v1.2 (November 16), we're working on outgoing webhooks, which could offer the ability to fire off console commands.

Applications are open for YC Summer 2019
