SimpleBot is a free/libre software, pluginable bot for Delta Chat written in Python, features depend on the installed plugins, think of it as a Lego robot. It is still a work in progress and isn’t well documented yet, but here are some instances running already:
For SPANISH speaking public groups, mega-groups, channels; also has a “user directory” where users can share their email address and a biography (like a presentation card) to make new friends, find love, provide contact for your business, etc.
Bridge between Delta Chat and Facebook/Messenger, allows to write to your Facebook friends from Delta Chat, using Facebook isn’t recommended, but if you are locked in that silo, using this bridge allows you to have an smooth transition to Delta Chat without losing contact with all your friends. It is recommended you run your own instance for security reasons. An (SPANISH) tutorial explaining how to use it: http://adbenitez.cubava.cu/como-chatear-con-tus-amigos-de-facebook-en-delta-chat/
Bridge between delta Chat and Mastodon, allow you to use your Mastodon account to toot, have private chats, etc with Mastodon users right from your Delta Chat, useful when you have an slow mobile data connection, or expensive data plan, this is much more lightweight than using a Mastodon client. It is recommended you run your own instance for security reasons. An (SPANISH) tutorial explaining how to use it: http://adbenitez.cubava.cu/como-usar-mastodon-desde-delta-chat/
