The blabber.im server shuts down tomorrow.

Although we're now in the final hours, I've been working all week towards something to help. I've put up an initial version of a web-based XMPP account migrator at migrate.modernxmpp.org/

It's rushed and still a bit rough round the edges right now, but I really hope it is useful to people who still have data and contacts to migrate before blabber.im goes offline.

If you use it, let me know how it goes! 🙂

Impressive effort!
Can one selfhost that tool / is the source code public? I'm sure many providers would be interested as soon as it is production ready

Yes, certainly! There is a link to the source in the "About" section of the page.

And yes, I will be encouraging people to host it once it's a little more polished. It intentionally has no server-side dependencies, it's just some static HTML and JS files. No data is sent to the host.

I also plan to integrate the functionality directly into Prosody and Snikket, which I'm really excited about 🙂
