This is a fork of the node-xmpp-client - idiomatic XMPP client library for node.js It includes fixes to the BOSH mode, tested with ejabberd Most of this readme is copied from the original, but there is a note on an API documentation error (see below).
Now usable in browsers too thanks to Browserify. To create a bundle run
This fork is API compatible with the original, so, except for the IMPORTANT note below, you should refer to the original manual at http://node-xmpp.github.io/doc/nodexmppclient.html.
There is an ERROR in the original manual (probably it's just outdated): The bosh url parameter in the options is not named boshURL. Instead, you should provide an object named 'bosh' with an 'url' property set to the BOSH url.
Note: We now only support nodejs versions 0.8.0 and greater.
With package manager npm:
npm install node-xmpp-client
Install the dev dependencies, then...
To run the tests and the code style checks then use:
Also see the tests run in travis. The tests in travis run both the code and code style tests.
How to use
Please see the various examples.
- Client authentication with SASL DIGEST-MD5, PLAIN, ANONYMOUS, X-FACEBOOK-PLATFORM
_xmpp-client._tcpSRV record support
- Even runs in the Browser.
- node-stringprep: for icu-based string normalization.
Automatically building the optional library can be turned off by
npm config set optional false or by setting the environmental variable
export NPM_CONFIG_OPTIONAL=false. On Heroku this is done through
heroku config:set NPM_CONFIG_OPTIONAL=false, for example.
Building XML Elements
Strophe.js' XML Builder is very convenient for producing XMPP
stanzas. ltx includes it in a much more primitive way: the
t() methods can be called on any Element
object, returning the new child element.
This can be confusing: in the end, you will hold the last-added child
until you use
up(), a getter for the parent.
tree() to retrieve the uppermost parent, the XMPP
stanza, before sending it out the wire.
node-xmpp-client now comes with a prebuilt browser bundle:
Rather than send empty packets in order to keep any socket alive please try the following:
this.client.connection.socket.setTimeout(0) this.client.connection.socket.setKeepAlive(true, 10000)
this.client is the result of
