Minetest Matrix bridge

This is a server-side mod for Minetest, creating a bridge between a Matrix instant-messaging room and a Minetest server.

This mod does not use any additional lua library, only standard Minetest API.

Demo server: port 30000; see Juneland's Matrix room

Minetest Forum thread


The mod needs an existing account on the Matrix server, and access to the room.

Copy the template config to config.lua:

cp config.template.lua config.lua

then edit config.lua.

Add matrix_bridge to secure.http_mods (e.g. in the file /etc/minetest/minetest.conf):

secure.http_mods = matrix_bridge

Compatibility proxy

If using Minetest 5.3.0 (probably any version strictly before 5.4.0), because of a broken API, you need to run the proxy:

python3 -A <matrix-host> -P <matrix-port> # --help to print options

In config.lua, set MATRIX_SERVER= and MATRIX_HACK_PROXY=true.


See Matrix API docs.
