@hankg @robey Matrix is doing a lot of cool stuff, and a bunch of it I hugely respect. More than anything else, I respect that they manage to push out software and get it in the hands of users. That's huge.
That said I think their architecture of a bunch of bespoke REST endpoints isn't a robust enough foundation to do the kind of things I want to do going forward. (Still some gems in there though.)
