Generic application to handle Remote Data API calls

Project description

Generic application to handle Remote Data API calls


For each specific tasks a handler function must be implemented.


pip install djabberd

Quick start

1. Include the django-ejabberd URLconf in your project like this::

url(r'', include('djabberd.urls'),
# For Django==1.8
url(r'', include('djabberd.urls'), namespace='djabberd')

2. Setup the handler in your Django settings::


Based on ejabberd-saas’s documentation those endpoints are required(01-Feb-2016):

  1. User management:

    1. Authentication (‘/auth’)

    2. User exists (‘/user’)

  2. Roster management:

    1. Retrieve user roster (‘/roster’)

  3. Archive:

    1. Store (‘/archive’)

    2. Get (‘/archive’)

There must be one function for each endpoint that should be implemented like this:

  • user_authentication(username, password):

    • Returns True if authentication is valid

    • Returns False if authentication is not valid

  • user_exists(username):

    • Returns True if user exists

    • Returns False if not(or if it is not active)

  • retrieve_user_roster(username):

    • Returns the roster in JSON format

    • Returns False if user does not exist

  • archive_store(payload)

    • Returns True if message has been stored

    • Returns a string containing an error message if message has not been stored

  • archive_get(username[, peer, after, before, limit, chat_type])

    • Returns the message history in JSON format

    • Returns False in any other case


  • retrieve_user_roster:

    {"roster": [
        {"username": "CONTACT",
         "subscription": "both",
         "nick": "NICK"},
  • archive_store:

    {"username": "USERNAME1",
     "peer": "USERNAME2",
     "xml": "MESSAGE_STANZA",
     "body": "TEXT",
     "timestamp": "TIMESTAMP",
     "direction": "DIRECTION"}
  • archive_get:

    {"archive": [{"username": "USERNAME1",
                  "peer": "USERNAME2",
                  "xml": "MESAGE_STANZA",
                  "body": "TEXT",
                  "timestamp": "TIMESTAMP",
                  "direction": "DIRECTION"}, ...]
                  "count" : MESSAGES_NUMBER


Based on ejabberd-saas’s documentation:

  • If XMPP JID is “userid@xmppdomain”, just pass “userid”

  • If XMPP JID of USER is “userid@xmppdomain”, just pass “xmppdomain”

  • If an exception is raised from your handler it would be treated as a server error

  • Return HTTP 200 for the successful case

  • Return HTTP 401 if authentication fails

  • Return HTTP 401 if it’s not the successful case

  • Return HTTP 500 for server errors, this is the Django’s default behavior
