Rocket.Chat offers a wide range of customization options, including basic color switching and complete CSS control. More importantly, you can make customizations without changing the source code.
Rocket.Chat is open source and flexible for customization and modifications.
Rather than making changes from the forked Rocket.Chat repository, developers are advised to focus on building the same codebase that can be customized for each user.
If you are customizing Rocket.Chat's codebase, it is assumed that you are a developer. As a developer, your focus should be building the product, then packaging it in your desired format.
Fork the Rocket.Chat GitHub repository and make necessary changes based on your requirements to the following:
- Adding new packages
- Building Custom UIs
- Extending logic, etc
Due to the unique needs of each user, it is difficult to provide detailed information on the specific customizations that can be made with the Rocket.Chat codebase. The extent and nature of these customizations will depend on individual requirements and preferences.
Suppose you are planning to build a custom deployment option for Rocket.Chat, such as a Docker image or snap package, refer to the Rocket.Chat Dockerfile and build script. These files contain all the necessary information and tools to start your customization.
