Matrix is kind of like a federated IRC system and Riot is a web and mobile interface to the Matrix system.

Dendrite is Matrix homeserver written in Go. It is a rewrite of synapse that was written in Python which could not scale.

Notes

  • Dendrite: You don't need to run Kafka unless working on distributed stuff. It is composed of several microservices (room server, sync api, media api...). Kafka is used to transfer messages between those microservices.
