Modern XMPP chat client Source


Dino is a modern open-source chat client for the desktop. It focuses on providing a clean and reliable Jabber/XMPP experience while having your privacy in mind.

It supports end-to-end encryption with OMEMO and OpenPGP and allows configuring privacy-related features such as read receipts and typing notifications.

Dino fetches history from the server and synchronizes messages with other devices.



GTK4/libadwaita since release 0.4. The main window adapts perfectly, but account and conversation settings do not (can be fixed on Phosh with scale-to-fit dino on), which can make starting conversations difficult, and the emoji picker does not work well yet. For earlier releases, the feature/handy branch had good mobile compatibility.

Mobile Fit: 4

Almost perfect, works fine with tweaks for scaling, like scale-to-fit dino on on Phosh

Project status: maturing

This project has been in development for some time and is somewhere around a 1.0 release. It should work mostly fine.
