A Matrix homeserver written in Rust

What is the goal?

An efficient Matrix homeserver that's easy to set up and just works. You can install it on a mini-computer like the Raspberry Pi to host Matrix for your family, friends or company.

Can I try it out?

Yes! You can test our Conduit instance by opening a Matrix client ( or Element Android for example) and registering on the homeserver.

It is hosted on a ODROID HC 2 with 2GB RAM and a SAMSUNG Exynos 5422 CPU, which was used in the Samsung Galaxy S5. It joined many big rooms including Matrix HQ.

What is the current status?

Conduit is Beta, meaning you can join and participate in most Matrix rooms, but not all features are supported and you might run into bugs from time to time.

There are still a few important features missing:

  • E2EE verification over federation
  • Outgoing read receipts, typing, presence over federation

Check out the Conduit 1.0 Release Milestone.

How can I deploy my own?

  4. Submit a MR
