Relay ME is now open-source!

This entry has been cross-posted in Codolution’s blog.

After recently announcing end-of-life for Relay ME, I have got a lot of responses from people who were using this app and relied on it for their business, and couldn’t find any alternatives to it. Unfortunately, or fortunately, texting is still a big thing and we don’t have a proper bridge to bring it to our online world. I was wondering if I could do something so we could keep this app working for as long as possible, given the fact that we can’t spent much time maintaining it. As a result, we have this app and its server-side components (used for OAuth flow, linking to GMail) open-sourced. You can find them on GitHub now (here, and here). You can now start contributing to this app, fix issues, and add features to it by sending pull-requests in GitHub. There will also be a public Trello board to track tasks and issues, to give visibility about what is happening in this space.

In terms of app maintenance, it will be kept alive but I don’t think any technical support can be provided at this stage. We hope that we can fix bugs and improve the app by getting help from developer community in the future.
