Matrix works great once setup but they really need to work on install process. All the "easy ways" are unofficial. Some of the clients, like Riot, appear to be really well written, but the server itself gives me pause. Just from looking at the configuration, the codebase appears to be a mess.

They also built the thing without specifying a protocol which was the original goal. I once attempted to implement a matrix client and the majority of doc pages on the protocol are "TDB" or "look at server source"

the client-server API has been stable and fully docced since early 2016, which explains why there are so many matrix clients out there. you must have been attempting a long time ago...
