[NEW FEATURE] Participants Pane (List) 🔥

Today, I almost shed a manly tear…

Look at what the Team gifted us:

I’ve longed for this for soooooooooo long! Ah, how my heart bubbles!

To the Jitsi Team: I know I sound like a broken record already, but THANK YOU! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!!! If I had a mighty Kingdom, I would give each of you a beautiful castle and ten 20-something year old virgins each (well, the Kingdom won’t be here in the U.S. so hush already with your overthinking self! :rofl:)

THANK YOU JITSIIIIIIIIII!!! Me love you long time!!! :heart_eyes: :heart_eyes: :heart_eyes:

Okay everybody, you know what time it is: LET’S DO THE HAPPY JITSI DANCE!!!


Hey @Freddie I have setup my jitsi on DigitalOcean and cannot find the config to enable participants pane. Can you guide me ?

@Chirag_Chopra welcome to the community! We are glad you are here!

:pushpin: Make sure 'participants-pane' is added/present in the toolbarButtons var of config.js:

toolbarButtons: [..., 'participants-pane', ...],

However, as of 2021-05-24T04:00:00Z, I do not believe this feature is in the current release. It may still be in unstable (https://meet.jit.si often runs newer versions before it’s released to everyone else. The Jitsi team can correct me if I am wrong.) ✓ It’s released (see below)

Yes it is. It’s currently available in stable and it’s on by default.

@Chirag_Chopra what version of Jitsi are you running?

Nice! I must be one version back. Thanks @Freddie

Working well on my server.

Bonus: The Participants list is an easy way for the Moderators to see who has their virtual hand raised.

Can I use trigger the participants-pane using my API object, like toggle it to show or hide on button click?
For example, I can toggleAudio and toggleVideo using API object but I didn’t find any such functionality for this one.
Help me out if you can please.

It would be very helpful to have something like this

you can try out this PR and if it works for you push for it to be merged…
