Element X iOS

ElementX iOS is a Matrix iOS Client provided by Element.

The application is a total rewrite of Element-iOS using the Matrix Rust SDK underneath and targetting devices running iOS 16+.

Rust SDK

ElementX leverages the Matrix Rust SDK through an FFI layer exposed as a swift package that the final client can directly import and use.

We're doing this as a way to share code between platforms and while we've seen promising results it's still in the experimental stage and bound to change.


This project is in work in progress. The app does not cover yet all functionalities we expect.
