After spending some time talking with @Nas about the Jabber (instant messaging) protocol, I am intending to write about the best use of Jabber / XMPP within NS.
I want to examine a number of things, including:
a. Open source / cross platform Jabber clients for desktops
b. Open source clients for mobile devices (eg. Android and IOS)
c. How to incorporate Jabber (XEP) standards into NS
- XEP-0163: Personal avatars
- XEP-0280: Message carbons syncing between multiple clients
- XEP-0313: Message archive management / offline synchronizing
• XEP-0363: File sharing within conferences and offline contacts.
d. How to incorporate Jabber into other frameworks (such as owncloud and Joomla etc.)
e. Comparing server software such as ejabbrd, Prosody, Openfire, Tigase and Apache Vysper
If anybody has any thought about this subject then please feel free to contribute to this post.
