What is Matrix?
Matrix is an open network for secure and decentralized communication. Users from every Matrix homeserver can chat with users from all other Matrix servers. You can even use bridges (also called Matrix appservices) to communicate with users outside of Matrix, like a community on Discord.
Conduit is a lightweight open-source server implementation of the Matrix Specification with a focus on easy setup and low system requirements. That means you can make your own Conduit setup in just a few minutes.
Other server implementations try to be extremely scalable, which makes sense if the goal is to support millions of users on a single instance, but makes smaller deployments inefficient. Conduit tries to keep it simple. The future for Conduit in peer-to-peer Matrix (every client contains a server) is also bright.
Conduit tries to be reliable by using the Rust programming language and paying close attention to error handling to make sure that evil clients, misbehaving servers or even a partially broken database will not cause the whole server to stop working.
