DJabberd config file

Ahhh yeah, Artur and I just added Apache-style conf to DJabberd so you don't have to write a Perl file with a bunch of server/vhost/plugin constructors by hand. Now it looks like:

$ cat djabberd.conf
OldSSL  enable

# defaults:
ClientPort 5222
ServerPort 5269

#PerlModule DJabberd::SixApart

  S2S enable
  RequireSSL no

  <Plugin DJabberd::Authen::AllowedUsers>
     Policy accept
     AllowedUsers brad crucially test

  <Plugin DJabberd::Authen::StaticPassword>
      Password password

  <Plugin DJabberd::PresenceChecker::Local />
  <Plugin DJabberd::Delivery::Local />
  <Plugin DJabberd::Delivery::S2S   />

  <Plugin DJabberd::RosterStorage::SQLite>
     Database roster.sqlite


$ ./djabberd --conf=djabberd.conf
Next step is removing the need for the must-have plugins and making them automatic. That means adding plugin-declared before/after dependencies so DJabberd can do the hook ordering. Should be easy. Then DJabberd should be getting ready for usability by the masses. :-)

Update: the as_bool function was fun:
sub as_bool {
    my $val = shift;
    return 1 if $val =~ /^1|yes|true|t|on|enabled?$/;
    return 0 if $val =~ /^0|no|false|f|off|disabled?$/;
    die "Can't determine booleanness of '$val'\n";
