Fleep vs Gitter: What are the differences?
Fleep: Your own business messenger. Leave email behind and manage all conversations with your team, partners and clients in Fleep. If some of them are not Fleep users yet, they will receive all messages as normal emails; Gitter: Messaging for people who make software. Integrated with your team, projects and your code. Free chat rooms for your public repositories A bit like IRC only smarter. Chats for private repositories as well as organisations..
Fleep and Gitter can be primarily classified as "Group Chat & Notifications" tools.
Some of the features offered by Fleep are:
On the other hand, Gitter provides the following key features:
- Know who's seen any message
- Edit messages after you've sent them
- Full emoji support
"Mobile friendly" is the primary reason why developers consider Fleep over the competitors, whereas "Github integration" was stated as the key factor in picking Gitter.
From a StackShare Community member: “We’re about to start a chat group for our open source project (over 5K stars on GitHub) so we can let our community collaborate more closely. The obvious choice would be Slack (k8s and a ton of major projects use it), but we’ve seen Gitter (webpack uses it) for a lot of open source projects, Discord (Vue.js moved to them), and as of late I’m seeing Spectrum more and more often. Does anyone have experience with these or other alternatives? Is it even worth assessing all these options, or should we just go with Slack? Some things that are important to us: free, all the regular integrations (GitHub, Heroku, etc), mobile & desktop apps, and open source is of course a plus."
We use Discord to tracking some action and errors (logs / alerting / assertion). it's free and simple to use with mobile application et notifications
We use Slack to increase productivity by simplifying communication and putting Slack in the middle of our communication workflow #Communications #Collaboration
We use Slack because we can let "tools talk to us" and automate processes in our dev team using bots.
Our Discord Server is our n°1 community stop; we gather feedback from our users from here, discuss about new features, announce new releases, and so on.
We even use it for internal meetings and calls !
