@celia both are based on the same software (Snikket uses Prosody), but Snikket is preconfigured and includes extras such as a TURN service to make audio/video calls work out of the box.
Snikket is good if you're new to #XMPP and want something that just works with no fuss. Prosody is better if you want to learn a bit about XMPP and have full control over... just about everything.
I'm a developer of both projects, so happy to answer any questions. See also this thread yesterday: https://mastodon.technology/@mattj/105583644796744755
@mattj Oh hi! Fancy seeing you here. I *just* donated a bit of money to you recently for Snikket a few days ago. Couldn't do much, but I suppose everything counts. :)
From your description, I'm tempted to go with Snikket. 😁
@celia let me know how it goes!
Thanks for the donation, very much appreciated! I'm pouring a lot of time into this project and really hoping I can make it sustainable!
I freed my own family from WhatsApp last year and I really believe in helping others to do the same.
Working towards some big milestones in the coming weeks... 🙂
@celia it should be possible to get it working behind a reverse proxy, I added some docs here: https://github.com/snikket-im/snikket-server/blob/master/docs/advanced/reverse_proxy.md
At some point these will transition to a docs section on the main site, but I want to get them tested a bit more first. Hope it helps :)
