    Any one have any recommendations for a free self hosted chat server similar to Slack?

    I was looking at Rocket Chat and Mattermost.

    Rocket chat looks good, but not sure if free.

    I found mattermost to be quite glitchy - not a fan. Out of interest what features are you interested in that IRC doesn't support?
