Possible link with synchronous/chat communication channels

On the OSM-FR discourse, I’ve setup the discourse-chat-integration plugin to maintain a link between Discourse and various chat channels.

When a new topic is created on Discourse, it is mentionned on the chat.

Here is for example what appeared in the OSMFR matrix/telegram channels a few minutes ago:

This creates a very useful soft link between sync and async channels in order to reduce fragmentation.

The integration is done with the matrix channels, which are themselves bridged with other (semi)closed platforms like telegram, discord or even IRC.

Integration can be done globally or at any category level, allowing for example only the “outdoor” category to send new topics to matrix/telegram “OSMFR outdoor” chat channel.
