What about a Zulip?
There was a question, a few weeks ago, about building a Slack or a Slack-like Zettlr community.
I've always loathed Slack as very distracting and inefficient. Recently, at work, we migrated to Zulip and this is a whole new way of communicating.
In fact, I think that a Zulip chat could elegantly replace both this forum and a Slack. It mixes the best of both world in a single place.
So, what are the advantages of Zulip:
- One place for the community to gather
- Same place to share and search for ressources
- It's Open Source !
- Can be installed on your own server but hosted version is free for Open Source projects !
- Name starts with Z
Zulip blog has a pretty convincing read about it: https://zulipchat.com/why-zulip/
