The idea behind this swarm is to simplify this by allowing community developers to interact with status, based uniquely on status-go library.

Requirements & Dependencies

Minimum Viable Product

All methods should work for 1to1, groups and public chats.

With this methods building a simple autoresponder bot should be as simple as:


// Connect to the default status url and defer closing the connection
st, _ := status.Connect(st.DefaultAddr) // -> localhost:51515
defer st.Close()

// Authenticate as an specific user
st, _ = status.Auth([]byte(“S3cretT0ken”))

// Subscribes to any message on chat chatID
sub, _ := st.Subscribe("chatID", func(m *st.Msg) {
    // Replies the received message
    m.Reply([]byte("I can help!”))

// Simple message publisher
st.Publish(“buddy_token", []byte("Hello World"))

SDK should be provided with different, easy to follow and well documented examples (TBD):
