My prayers have finally been answered!
It was 2 weeks ago when I was asking about this particular part of Sailfish OS to be open sourced and hell yes it is now opened!
As we go along Sailfish OS takes steps to make various parts open as it is not 100% open source yet. Today we have been informed by our dear friend Nicolas Suffys from JollaFR that Sailfish OS has now it’s Social Media Sync plugin open sourced.
JollaFR also say in their post that contributions and ideas are coming soon.
Which means that we’ll have extra plugins implemented in Sailfish OS quite soon so we won’t be needing extra chat applications.
We may also have some Session initiation protocol (SIP) calls enabled? I don’t have a clue about this one but I’m just assuming. Hopefully we’ll see native Skype calls after this as well. Patience will answer all of our questions.
Thank you Jolla for making this part open, since it was indeed a necessity!
