[Request] Synapse/Riot - Matrix

After reading Xyn’s request for bitwarden_rs and stark’s response, in which the following criteria were mentioned:

  • Is there an “official” offering already?
  • If there is, does it provide all the necessary features required by its users
  • Is it actively maintained?
  • Do members of the LSIO team already use the app or container?

It sort of does meet these requirement’s, but it is definitely not as simple as most of lsio’s containers. I did have to jump through multiple hoops to setup my own.
The official image is just a synapse server, without a postgresdb.You also have to include your own turn-server if you want it. Riot is optional as well.

There are some great projects already, e.g. https://hub.docker.com/r/avhost/docker-matrix which is actively maintained (though not official).
And https://github.com/spantaleev/matrix-docker-ansible-deploy, which does all that you might want, but it’s a little tough to combine with a running server. Or if you’re not familiar with Ansible.

So not necessarily a request, just seeing if anyone’s interested. (And bridging matrix with the linuxserver.io discord with https://matrix.org/docs/projects/bridge/matrix-appservice-discord/ might be the coolest thing ever. But I might be understanding that wrong)

Agreed! It would be nice to have a linuxserver/synapse-riot.
