Newbie OSS questions


We are a new development team planning to incorporate chat functionality into a new web app. The desire is to white label to some degree Mattermost into our app. A couple of questions:

  1. Generally speaking, is this kosher? The appropriate way to go about?
  2. In terms of how Mattermost functions out of the box, can we do things like rewire the UI? Add new functions? Basically, treat the sourcode more like a shared toolbox that we use to to write our own chat experience?

Trying to make sure we get started on the right foot!
