arcrileyno prob im talking to a few people about this
Lancesigh, why do most clients display adhoc command forms in the ugliest ways?
stpeterLance: good question
stpeterLance: clearly someone needs to develop a sleek new client on top of SleekXMPP ;-)
Lancethere's poezio, but its console only
stpeterthe other thing we could do is complete the voting on a website and use the JIDs for XEP-0070 authorization
Lancedo any clients support that?
stpeterI have not tested it in a long time
Lanceor rather, do browsers support it
Lanceclients only have to display a link
Lanceok, looks like just digest-md5, so they should
Lanceputs xep-0070 on short list of new plugins to add to sleek
stpeteryeah, ultra-secure digest-md5!
Lancewhat I really want in a client is one that displays message forms inline with chats
arcrileyis that actually used by anyone?
Lancethey would if they showed up inline
Lanceit would just make interacting with bots so much nicer. an actual form instead of pseudo-form text commands
arcrileyWWW-Authenticate: Basic realm="xmpp"
Do any browsers actually use that? ^^
arcrileyclient aside thats the big issue I see
Lancewe'd have to test, but I think they would
Lancei was thinking of the digest one
Lancegoes to make a test script
Lancethe realm option is pretty standard though, its just not a domain in this case
Lanceoh, but it would also try asking for a password
arcrileyIIRC when you get a authorization request a dialog opens requesting your username/password.
arcrileyand you would then have to script to return your JID, etc etc
Lanceusername would be your jid, and empty password
Lanceer, no. the password is the transaction id
arcrileyhow would the user have a transaction ID?
Lanceit gets sent to your JID via your xmpp client
Lanceit is certainly not the most user friendly workflow
Lancenot that i'm aware of. it would certainly make it a smoother process
Lancebut it can still be done manually
Lancethis really is a case where cridland's 'browsers need to run xmpp natively' idea shines
arcrileyi agree with that.
arcrileyits a chicken and egg problem tho.
Lancechrome already does it for syncing apparently; it would be nice if it was just more exposed and configurable
bearcouldn't the transationid/password dealio be handled like oauth tokens
bearthat way the owner of the jid could revoke an apps use of their xmpp stream
bearand have it tied directly to a resource part of the jid
