For the last few years I've been working in my spare time on making a JavaScript XMPP chat client, called converse.js.

Originally the idea was to make a Gtalk like chat client that you integrate in your website, and it can still be used like that.

Slack's bait and switch
We all know the real reason Slack has closed off their gateways. Their business model dictates that they should. Slack's business model is to record everything said in a workspace and then to sell you access to their record of your conversations. They're a typical walled garden, information silo or Siren Server. So they have to close everything off, to make sure that people can't extract their conversations out of the silo. We saw it with Google, who built Gtalk on XMPP and even federated with other XMPP servers, only to later stop federation and XMPP support in favour of trying to herd the digital cattle into the Google+ enclosure. Facebook, who also built their chat app on XMPP at first allowed 3rd party XMPP clients to connect and then later dropped interoperability.

Twitter, although not using or supporting XMPP, had a vibrant 3rd party client ecosystem which they killed off once they felt big enough. Slack, like so many others before them, pretend to care about interoperability, opening up just so slightly, so that they can lure in people with the promise of "openness", before eventually closing the gate once they've achieved sufficient size and lock-in.

Why isn't there a public blog post about this? Why is the "more information" page behind an auth wall?
