Dendrite is a second-generation Matrix homeserver written in Go. It intends to provide an efficient, reliable and scalable alternative to Synapse:


  • Efficient: A small memory footprint with better baseline performance than an out-of-the-box Synapse.
  • Reliable: Implements the Matrix specification as written, using the same test suite as Synapse as well as a brand new Go test suite.
  • Scalable: can run on multiple machines and eventually scale to massive homeserver deployments.

Important infos before installing

Dendrite is still in beta phase. It is functional, but all Matrix features are yet to be implemented. See the upstream repo for more information: https://github.com/matrix-org/dendrite
