  2. nano editor

    Some of us prefer nano over vi. It can't be that big of a deal to include nano in the container, can it?

  3. enable other databases, e.g. Oracle.

    Having support for other databases, e.g. Oracle, is crucial as this is common infrastructure in enterprise IT landscapes.

  4. Add per-channel email notification controls

    Similar to per-channel desktop notification controls, I'd like the option to disable email notifications on a per channel basis. A good use case for this is our Git repo web hook: I don't need an email telling me I pushed commits to the repository (currently the author name generates a mention notification).

    My [original forum post](http://forum.mattermost.org/t/per-channel-email-notification-settings/497) might provide additional context.

  5. Multiple concurrent daemons for HA/scalability

    I am currently running two mattermost daemons on separate VM's doing exactly the same thing (same nfs share for files, same MySQL cluster backend for database), to have HA.

    In my original setup I had them loadbalanced too (meaning individual user sessions got spread over both backends), however I noticed notifications were not always working.

    I got over this issue by reconfiguring the loadbalancer and putting the mattermost backends in active/stand-by - all sessions are now assigned to one backend (the 'active' one) until it fails (reboot, upgrade, etc.); then the stand-by becomes active all sessions move to the other.…

  6. Comment on the posted IMG on specific elements.

    My Feature Idea:
    Open a Preview of the posted IMG or PDF and comment on specific elements. (For Design Teams like the feature in InVision)
    Example: Comment on the button on the left side because it looks too small.
    I love Mattermost and plan to integrate it in our workflow :)

  7. Support connecting with IRC clients

    Mattermost should support regular IRC clients. A bridge require you to host an entire separate IRC server just for a couple of IRC clients, unless you want to give control to an IRC network. In addition, a bridge per definition is hackish. People speaking are not in the userlist, private messages are impossible etc.

  8. iOS keyboard improvements

    Currently both the iOS app and the Mobile view of mattermost (my local install is the last travis-ci build from a week or so ago) when you bring up the input box you are presented with a Send icon, on top of a Done button along with a Return on the actual keyboard. This from a user perspective is super confusing and unintuitive. I would suggest either completely removing the Send icon, or removing the Done text and that whole extra bar that ends up being drawn just to have it there. Also if at all possible changing return to…

  9. Add autocomplete for webhooks

    Sorry, I posted my idea here : https://github.com/mattermost/platform/issues/1256

    Descirption :

    Let me explain this through an example
    I've set a outgoing webhooks triggered by "$", then sended text is parsed by my bot, and runs according command.
    ie: "$start 1234" runs "start" command with "1234" args.

    Autocomplete hook could work like this:
    I enter "$st" and press tab, the hook is triggered, sends current text to the bot and the response populates the autocomplete list with something like [{command: […], description: […]}, […]] and whatever needed by the list.

  10. Copying and pasting is not great

    A copied mattermost conversation has three lines per message, and the first line is like "ryantm1 minute ago" and the last line is blank. It would be nice if there were cleaner ways to copy the conversations.

  11. Display option to add a click count next to embedded links

    Similar to how discourse (https://forum.mattermost.org/) tracks the number of clicks on a link.

    Proposed spec:

    1) Add Team Setting > Display > Advanced Message Display Options

    Title: Advanced Message Display Options

    Help text: "Advanced options for message display."

    [ ] Show count of clicks next to hyperlinks in messages.

    2) If zero clicks have been made on a link, show no indicator.

  12. Timer for channels

    Add a timer - like an egg clock.

    "I set the timer on this channel to 15minutes, and when its over, @channel gets a notification to stop their tasks and message the results here"

    "Ok, everybody brainstorm this idea until the channel timer bleeps"

    "Scrum meeting is delayed 30 minutes, I set up a timer so you dont miss the start of it"

  13. Add github integration

    I think, an integration with github will become the most important feature that push mattermost among dev teams, because many companies use private github repositaries for internal software development. Btw. maybe it is related with this feature http://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/9557994-add-git-hooks, but anyway I just wanted stress out particularly github.

    Guys, thank you for your great work!

  15. Support websockets on separate sub-domain

    Cloudflare does not include support for websockets on its free accounts so they advise you to create a subdomain to be used exclusively for websockets and configure the DNS so that the websocket communication is not routed through their service. I'm not sure how difficult this would be to implement, but I am hoping not very ;-)

  17. Add support for custom header/footer on webpages

    It would be extremely useful for a straight-forwarded way of adding a custom header and footer to the static HTML pages. For instance, my employer requires some boilerplate legalese on every internal webpage and currently this would require editing nearly every HTML file in /web/templates. Similarly it would be nice to be able to add badging to the header of every page with a logo or something along those lines.

  20. Pretty private message URLs

    Just like channel URLs but automatically created.
    Example:
    http://domain.com:8065/channels/town-square - default channel URL
    http://domain.com:8065/users/user - URL for private messages of the user
