Jabber server status [Feb. 17th, 2006|03:35 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
[Tags|, , ]

-- Authentication (digest)
-- Authentication plugin against LiveJournal
-- Inter-user messaging (single node server)

Not done:
-- roster stuff
-- multi-node (but I have a plan which ignores this whole issue: not doing multi-node... making the subclasses deal with it! subclasses of the server must deal with routing messages. then LJ does something fancy, and small users use single-node)
-- server-to-server (shouldn't be that hard?)

Really fun: Jesse and I logged in using our LiveJournal usernames/passwords and chatted, complete with HTML! :P

Almost as good as "Mr. Watson -- come here!"

Re: For posterity's sake

not sure what jabber server you are using... but there are a couple out there that are quite well done.

http://www.jivesoftware.com/products/wildfire/ is my current choice.

btw, s2s is quite easy. i'd recommend setting up peering to google talk as well for more acceptance.

what sort of load balancing for the servers are you setting up?

Poor Mr. Bell was burning from battery acid. The unfortunate connotations of his message could not have been avoided under the circumstances.

Brad joins Bell in the history books...

"Mr Watson, come here! I need you!" - Mr. Bell
"hott" - Brad

P.S. GRR! I click "prev entry" to look at the other entry on this, and I get that stupid 403 forbidden with no arrow buttons on it. :(

Ah, I was wondering how you got that to work so fast. :) Server-to-server is kind of a pain, especially handling all the different permutations of dialback nonsense.

I'm looking forward to XMPP taking over the IM world. Slowly but surely.
