The XMPP Standards Foundation develops the XMPP/Jabber instant messaging and voice/video calling standards. You can follow them at:
The official site is https://xmpp.org
It's a free open standard, so anyone can use it in their software and hardware.
New job ad for a Converse developer on http://xmpp.work
Great opportunity for someone who wants to work with FOSS and standards.
I've worked with them before, can vouch for them and am available to answer questions and provide guidance.
Snikket is a new XMPP/Jabber-based decentralised FOSS messenger service. You can follow at:
The official website is https://snikket.org
It aims to make XMPP into a more viable alternative to Whatsapp etc by providing consistency in design and terminology.
(It's sort of how Mastodon made ActivityPub more mainstream, by using consistency to make it clear the instances are part of one network.)
I'm considering making #mercurial native repos the default on the FOSS #heptapod public service https://foss.heptapod.net/heptapod/foss.heptapod.net/-/issues/95
Tails natively ships with a #XMPP client. Currently Pidgin.
For security reason Tails is going to replace it.
Some research about them and Tails requirements you can read here:
(keep in mind that it's a living paper)
http://Quicksy.im user count has grown by more than 30% over the last two weeks.
Development Update: In December, the profile window received a complete rework, adding state of the art vCard capabilities and a brand new profile picture selector to Gajim. Furthermore, Chat Markers have been improved and some bugs have been fixed.
With all eyes on social media platforms’ influence on democracy, @rysiek gets to the crux: “the question isn’t really about how these platforms should wield their power — **the question is whether these platforms should have such power in the first place.**”
Didn't expect to open Hacker News and see the Prosody blog post on the front page 🙂
I really hope that the growing attention to the practices of big tech will push more people to discover #XMPP and other decentralized alternatives to those large platforms.
These companies need more data to thrive and grow. It's how they work, it's their DNA.
I believe that only communication platforms with no central ownership can be trusted. That's why I'm working hard on @snikket_im. I already migrated my family to it, and it's going great!
Movim is a federated open source social media platform based on the open XMPP protocol
Movim simplifies the management of your news and your publications. So forget the ads, forget the superfluous. They designed an interface that really focuses on your content. In Communities you can publish and subscribe to various nodes on different topics. Just click on the Communities link in your menu and start exploring!
Movim relies on the XMPP standard and therefore allows you to exchange with many other clients on all devices such as Conversations (Android) or Dino (Desktop). Compatible with the others XMPP clients such as Conversations. https://squeet.me/objects/962c3e10e89914cb1130ff7654de10188b5c5dbb
Added a new page to our website with an overview of the project and its goals: https://snikket.org/about/goals/
May help answer "What is Snikket about?" for some of you!
Open-source developer and founder of the Prosody, Snikket and modernxmpp.org projects.
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
