I guess I should introduce myself, if you happen across this Blog then there may be that chance that you actually wish to know some details about me.
How do I put this, these guys are simply fantastic. If you haven’t already, I suggest their weekly Live Stream,
Bilge Tank over on YouTube, weekly on Thursday afternoons (Around 3PM UK Time). Not only do they show off cool stuff, answer your questions; they also do Giveaways. For example, during Bilge Tank 022, I answered a very simple question first and won myself a Raspberry Pi Zero pHat DAC Kit worth £30+Postage. Not only that but I’ve won quite a few freebies from these guys in the past and they offer decent prices with frequent store-wide discounts!
The initial plan was to develop further bridges but since a lot of the community were already focussing efforts there, the Matrix.org team set me alternate tasks I could choose from. I was given the task to develop a way for Matrix to be indexable by search engines, as Riot.im is a really heavy React application that is not crawler friendly, so a client which had no client side scripting was desired. I was also tasked with squashing bugs and some substantial changes or fixes in riot-web, outlined below. The reason this was needed is that riot-web (riot.im) is a very heavy React web application, and the Google crawler simply is unable to index it.
