Huddle vs Slack: What are the differences?

Developers describe Huddle as "The Enterprise Content Collaboration Platform". Huddle is conversations around content to move projects forward. It’s one copy of a file, saved in the cloud, for your team to work from. It’s being absolutely sure you’re working from the right version every time. It’s one secure, organized place for all your files, available anytime you need it, from whatever device you’re on. It’s the fastest, most secure environment you can customize—so it works the way you do. On the other hand, Slack is detailed as "Bring all your communication together in one place". Imagine all your team communication in one place, instantly searchable, available wherever you go. That’s Slack. All your messages. All your files. And everything from Twitter, Dropbox, Google Docs, Asana, Trello, GitHub and dozens of other services. All together.

Huddle belongs to "Project Management" category of the tech stack, while Slack can be primarily classified under "Group Chat & Notifications".

Some of the features offered by Huddle are:

  • Share files
  • Track actions
  • Work securely

On the other hand, Slack provides the following key features:

  • Create open channels for the projects, groups and topics that the whole team shares.
  • Search with context
  • Autocomplete makes mentioning your teammates quick and painless.

Keybase is a powerful and secure team-organizing software. And because Keybase is so transparently good at what it does, Keybase is a foundational software that facilitates the future of work: effective, inclusive, secure Remote Teams.

Keybase is a free, end-to-end encrypted, open-source program with almost limitless flexibility. Each Keybase user or team is a unique cryptographic identity. Each message or interaction that a user has with a team or other user, is verifiable and digitally-signed. Custom combinations of users/teams/bots, can be designed to catalyze Remote Teams of all kinds, this process can also be automated. Keybase includes Git integration for versioning, bots from multiple platforms to facilitate audio/video-conferencing, a Cryptocurrency wallet, and many advanced privacy features to make you more or less traceable.

Services like Slack and Discord are centralized platforms that perform analytics on your behavior and can sell or leak this data to 3rd parties. Any audio/video features available within Slack or Discord, are bound to be less secure and less flexible than excellent alternatives such as Jitsi. Slack and Discord do have a fun, causal feel to them, which can potentially facilitate social engagement in certain conditions (also many users are already on these platforms).

Centralized and Proprietary team platforms such as Discord and Slack have a large market presence (at least in the USA) based on their first-mover advantage, name recognition, and network effects from size. However these products do not have the flexibility or power of Keybase. Keybase excels on its own excellence, and also has an open and active developer community.

We tried out a handful of communication tools including Slack, Microsoft Teams, and Google Hangouts Chat, before settling with Mattermost.

The customisability offered through your server's system console is unrivalled and in some ways overwhelming with the sheer amount of options that you're provided with.

All communication tools share 99% of their UI with each other, and Mattermost is no different, but that's not a bad thing. It also seems to have a less cluttered interface than the others we had tried, although I can't pinpoint the specific design choice that is the reason for this.

The fact that we can have control over all of our data (we're self-hosting it through AWS on a single EC2 instance) is also a great plus which none of the options that we looked into offered.

We chose RocketChat over other communications suites like Cliq or Slack mainly because we can self-host it on our own infrastructure. Since we have quite some projects going on which demand that we stay in touch with a lot of different stakeholders, pricing was an issue, too. With RocketChat, we have a huge set of features basically for free, RC offers apps for all major devices and systems and overall, we're very happy with it. The only downside is the limited amount of apps and integrations, but we can make due with what we have available.
