XMPP Service Operators - 2021-09-05

  1. Christopher M0YNG

    Great, thanks Харпер

  2. Christopher M0YNG

    Got it working!

  3. Licaon_Kter

    Christopher M0YNG: care to explain use case?

  4. Christopher M0YNG

    I already have xmpp server and client set up, now I can seamlessly connect to irc via blabber on my phone and laptop without needing more software It's probably not NEEDED...

  5. Licaon_Kter

    Oh, ok, plain gateway to IRC

  6. Licaon_Kter

    Biboumi can bridge a MUC to an IRC channel?

  7. Christopher M0YNG

    Yes. Although it's a dedicated muc to the irc channel

  8. Licaon_Kter

    Yes, I might want to setup one of those :)

  9. Christopher M0YNG

    I'll write it up later ...

  11. Christopher M0YNG

    here you go: https://m0yng.uk/2021/09/Talking-IRC-via-XMPP/ (also available via gemini and gopher and tor...)

  12. Licaon_Kter

    Christopher M0YNG: umm yes and no, already have a connection via jabberfr, but...

  13. Licaon_Kter

    > Biboumi can bridge a MUC to an IRC channel? ...means something else Join `xmpp:muc@conference.xmpp.server?join` and inside see `ircchannel@irc.server`

  14. Licaon_Kter

    Christopher M0YNG: like https://www.isode.com/whitepapers/interconnecting-xmpp-and-irc.html but foss, like https://github.com/moparisthebest/xmpp-ircd moparisthebest: you had some good reason to maintain this I guess?

  15. moparisthebest

    rozzin is maintaining it now, I kinda gave up because python, it doesn't do bridging either though, just exposes a muc server as an IRC server

  16. moparisthebest

    I think biboumi can do bridging like you want though (expose an IRC server as a MUC server)

  17. Licaon_Kter

    So there's a solution? Matrix is eating up this usecase and I'm not going down without a fight :)

  18. Licaon_Kter

    Biboumi....maybe...I read the docs and nothing...I'll read again daaamit

  19. rozzin

    > I think biboumi can do bridging like you want though (expose an IRC server as a MUC server) Yes, and see also https://git.singpolyma.net/cheogram-muc-bridge

  20. rozzin

    irc.cheogram.com is a public Biboumi service if you want to just try it and see how it works.

  21. moparisthebest

    Licaon_Kter: https://doc.biboumi.louiz.org/9.0/admin.html#fixed-irc-server

  22. Link Mauve

    Christopher M0YNG, most XMPP clients don’t use /commands, and especially not /msg to mean “open a private chat with someone whose JID is <first argument>@the-current-muc-domain”.

  23. rozzin

    Licaon_Kter: cheogram-muc-bridge + biboumi = the "like isode but foss" thing that you're looking for.

  24. Licaon_Kter

    Thanks, will read

  25. Christopher M0YNG

    Link Mauve: good point, I hadn't tested it just assumed. Will update.

  26. Christopher M0YNG

    Post updated

  27. Christopher M0YNG

    I'll admit to assuming it would work and not testing it that way!

  28. alberto

    Nice idea opening a chat instead of the / commands. I had to use adhoc commands before for that purpose but that is more convenient.

  29. alberto

    Nevertheless I suppose to do it each time the connection resets...

  30. Link Mauve

    alberto, indeed, while using the ad-hoc command to set SASL credentials will work automatically every time, and not possibly leak your password to someone else than the bot intended.

  31. Link Mauve

    (IRC is such a mess…)

  32. alberto

    Yep 😔
