What is Friends?
Friends is like Slack except P2P, offline friendly and open source. We transmit data over secure channels and authenticate messages. It's made by a group of open source developers who are motivated to make a public chat platform that is easy to use but isn't centrally controlled, and where data is owned by its users.
Friends is a tool in the Group Chat & Notifications category of a tech stack.
Friends is an open source tool with 3.1K GitHub stars and 372 GitHub forks. Here’s a link to Friends's open source repository on GitHub
