Introduction I am a HUGE fan of matrix. It allows me to organize my chats in a sensible way, it works with multiple identities and completly anonymous if I want it to. Spaces made Matrix my favourite messenger by far. Yet, there is one feature I have been missing: Disappearing messages!
Regarding the security and usability, only Signal is comparable to matrix. But: Signal offers the possibilty to define disappearing messages for groups and direct messages ranging from 30 seconds to 4 weeks.
Integration Following the quickstart documentation I tried to add cactus comments to this blog. I currently rely on infrastructure by cactus.chat as I do not host a private synapse server.
I currently implemented this as a shortcode with hard-coded site title and a variable room name.
