In the AP C2S session we talked about the chicken-and-egg issue of having no clients for C2S because there are no servers and vice versa. During the hackathon we could try to write a C2S client and modify our C2S server parts in tandem to make it work, adding features that are missing at the moment.
One idea was to port an existing client (like pleroma-fe or similar) to the C2S API. This might be a bit too much.
We could also implement a basic chat client for Pleroma’s new ChatMessages that does nothing but handle chats, which could also give friendica the opportunity to get started with this feature.
