Description Ricardo Ramos 2016-07-25 16:41:47 UTC
Wire is one in a growing number of messaging services that promise to keep their users' correspondence private. In this case, the service offers encrypted text, voice, and video calls. And now it's open source.

The company has uploaded the remaining source code that wasn't already available on GitHub. Specially, components related to the user interface of the native and web apps, plus some of the tools the company used internally, are now openly available.

Wire is inviting users to use this material to build their own clients. The company is also inviting the community to review its code base and help with development.

This is a good opportunity to improve empathy and maybe to improve the rumored Gnome Chat as well.

I don't know what I was thinking but empathy is dead!, closing this now.
