A Matrix homeserver written in Rust

Liberapay Matrix

What is the goal

A fast Matrix homeserver that’s easy to set up and just works. You can install it on a mini-computer like the Raspberry Pi to host Matrix for your family, friends or company.

Is it fast?

Can I try it out?

Yes! Just open Riot (https://riot.im/app or RiotX) and register on the https://conduit.koesters.xyz:14004 homeserver.

How can I deploy my own?

You just have to clone the repo, build it with cargo build --release and call the binary (target/release/conduit) from somewhere like a systemd script. It’s explained in more detail here.

What is it build on?

  • Ruma: Useful structures for endpoint requests and responses that can be (de)serialized
  • Sled: A simple (key, value) database with good performance
  • Rocket: A flexible web framework

What are the biggest things still missing?

  • Federation (Make Conduit talk to other Matrix servers)
  • Notifications (Make Matrix client notify the user when new messages or pings arrive)
  • Lots of testing

Also check out the milestones.
