Riot has been rebranded to Element. See developer's blog
Riot is an Open-Source, privacy-aware, multi-platform collaboration tool (text, audio, video, etc.) built on top of Matrix. The main features include end-to-end encryption, bridging to other services such as IRC, Gitter, or Slack, and integrations with popular services such as GitHub and Travis.
- Break Through - Riot allows teams to communicate across a wide range of collaboration apps. If some team members use Riot while others use IRC, Slack, or Gitter, Riot will allow these team members to seamlessly work together. Riot offers the richest network of communication bridges.
- Own Your Own Data - No one should control your communication and data but you. Riot lets you run your own server, and provides users and teams with the most advanced crypto ratchet technology available today for a decentralized secure Internet.
- Open Source - Riot is entirely open source: all the code is published on GitHub (Apache License) for anyone to see and extend. This means teams can customize or contribute to the code and everyone can benefit from the speed of community innovation.
- Made on Matrix - Riot is built on top of Matrix. Matrix is an open network for secure, decentralized communication delivering a community of users, bridged networks, integrated bots and applications plus full end-to-end encryption.
