XMPP support for Chandler
The XMPP Plug-in is an experimental plug-in, created early on to demonstrate some of the things that are possible in Chandler Desktop’s plug-in framework. However, as we’ve made changes and improvements to the app, plug-ins such as this one have not been updated or tested. As a result, to safeguard against data corruption, we recommend that you run a separate, clean version of Chandler when installing plug-ins.
This plugin provides support for XMPP in Chandler.
NOTE: This plugin is extremely experimental and it is not recommended you use this inside a Chandler with data you care about.
What it does:
Once you have installed the plugin, the File > Accounts dialog will have a new account type, “XMPP / Jabber”. You can create an account of this type and from now on, any XMPP message that arrives will be added as an event to a collection named “XMPP” (which will get automatically created in the sidebar).
Eventually, this plugin will allow other plugins to register to handle incoming messages.
To download and install the plugin from the Chandler UI, use the “Plugins -> Download” and “Plugins -> Install” menus.
To download and install the plugin from the command line, use Chandler’s InstallPlugin script and restart Chandler:
If you want to work on its code, you can use:
RunPython setup.py develop
to install it in development mode (where you can make changes and have them take effect whenever Chandler is restarted), or you can use:
RunPython setup.py install
to install it as an .egg file.
Note that when installed as an egg file, changes made to the source code will not affect Chandler execution, until you run setup.py install or setup.py develop again.
After making changes to this plugin, you should update its version number in setup.py and in the chandler/Makefile, so that people using “quick builds” of Chandler will use your new version.
If you want to run this plugin’s tests use:
RunPython setup.py test
