The tricky thing there is Ring is written in Java, not JavaScript, so any code used to connect to that network would have to be written from scratch.

Ring (formerly SFLphone) is free distributed multimedia communication software published under the GNU General Public License 3. It is developed by Savoir-faire Linux with the help of a global community of users and contributors. Savoir-faire Linux is a Canadian company specialized in Linux and free software.

Perhaps Ring could be integrated into too?

I had started to use<> some weeks ago and it is a keeper for me. With all the hipsters using discord and slack, I wanted something open source that can it be at the same level, I found that riot (and using free service<>) was very good for me. I have some chat channels and some connected to IRC freenode. The chat bots are decent and easy enought to use. And with<> being available on Android, Windows, iOS and web I'm connected everytime.

It is a good idea. Right now Thunderbird chat function is very limited, slow and has a confusing GUI. Maybe some mix between riot and pidgin IM can be eventually think to improve the Thunderbird chat functions.

I keep thinking I should write some really good, convincing email, but I keep not doing it, so I'll just make it simple.

Is there any chance of having<> integration?

  *   It's open, privacy-friendly, etc.
  *   It's well made
  *   It's written using Web technologies (Javascript, etc), and runs in the browser
  *   It could ease the implementation of the chat component by providing a solid base, thus only needing to implement other protocols (IRC, XMPP, twitter, etc) on top of it
  *   It would make TB:NG more than just another email client.  It would be an email client+"Slack"+"Google Hangouts" all on one free, privacy-friendly, easy-to-use program.

I think<> integration could bring a lot to the table for both Thunderbird and<>.  Thunderbird already sees a lot of corporate use, think of how much more it could see if it served the role of a email program and a messaging program (Slack) and a voice/video communications program (Google Hangouts, Skype, etc).  Less programs to keep up-to-date, less accounts to deal with, no messy EULAs to deal with, easier for everyone in the end.

TB:NG would be more than just another email program, it would be an Free, privacy-friendly communications hub.
