The blabber.im #XMPP 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 https://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! 🙂
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 🙂
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!
