Nextcloud Talk

The Talk mobile apps are rubbish, do not use them, use browsers instead.

1. Realtime Sync

End-to-End encryption of text messages synchronisation between Talk Conversation based on replication via mqtt.

1.1. Insert into Nextcloud Talk

Get the correct conversation token first by listing out conversations:
https://nextcloud-talk.readthedocs.io/en/stable/conversation/

Using the chat API

curl --data '{"token":"<roomid>","message":"hi there"}' -H "Content-Type: application/json" -H "Accept: application/json" -H "OCS-APIRequest: true" -H "Authorization: \"Basic ********=\"" -v -X POST https://mydomain.tld/ocs/v2.php/apps/spreed/api/v1/chat/<roomid>

1.2. Read from Nextcloud Talk

Get the correct conversation token first by listing out conversations:
https://nextcloud-talk.readthedocs.io/en/stable/conversation/

Using the chat API

 https://<server>/ocs/v2.php/apps/spreed/api/v1/chat/<chat_id>?lookIntoFuture=1&limit=5&timeout=10&lastKnownMessageId=<last_processed_message_id>

2. Batch Sync

mysql -u $DB_USER -p -h $HOST -D $DB -e 'SELECT * FROM oc_comments;' > ~/chat_`date +%d.%Y`.log

3. Deck Bugs

3.1. Tag Bugs

The tags within each board CANNOT be shared with other boards.

  1. Transfer Tags between boards and servers - How-To - deck - Nextcloud community
  2. Global tags setting 路 Issue #2316 路 nextcloud/deck 路 GitHub

Since each board has DIFFERENT tags, to move Cards between boardss we need to:

  • delete tags
  • move card
  • add tags back in

so even if the name and colour are the same they are NOT the same
