Jabber Feed

This plugin feeds Jabber server pubsub nodes when new posts are published on Wordpress and comments are added.

Question from myself: how people can subscribe on a Jabber node?

Unfortunately this plugin is rather a "proof of concept" plugin as long as there is no Jabber client allowing users to easily subscribe (and configure their subscription) to xmpp pubsub nodes. I could use Gajim to subscribe to nodes though, but I had much difficulty to "browse" nodes with it, and it is impossible to create a node (at least I have not found). As for Psi, I could not do any subscription at all.

The only mean for the time being is to use a client with a XML console (the only ones I know with such a console are Gajim, Psi, and Sameplace with an official plugin) and send this raw XML subscription (which is indeed a non very user-friendly method, I must admit).

It would be nice if people could implement soon a node subscription feature in their favorite Jabber client (I will probably try to do so myself as a next step) and also a relation in their favorite web-browser to Jabber links (so that they could have their Jabber client propose them to subscribe and configure a node just by clicking on a link on their browser). Hopefully then I will update this readme to advice such Jabber client and web browser! :-)

From myself: which jabber server has a good pubsub implementation?

I am using ejabberd 2.0 and 2.0.1 for my own, but it is pretty flawed on many ways. Especially it is impossible to configure your subscription to a node. What a shame! :-( Anyway it is sufficient basically for the proof of concept, but probably not for long-term (even mid-term) real use. Yet I heard that the coming development version of ejabberd (3.0) has had a rewrite of the pubsub implementation. I have not tested though.

I don't know sufficiently others server softwares to give an opinion about them. But I was told Openfire should have soon a pretty good PubSub support. I am still waiting to test it though.

From myself: which Jabber client could I advice to visitors of my website?

As explained, there are few, if none, clients with good PubSub support. This is why I told this plugin is more a proof of concept than an useful one. But hopefully, soon it will be better! Process One has developped recently a pubsub client called one-channel, as far as I know, the first one ever publicly released, fully dedicated to pubsub. I had only one review from someone, not so enthousiast though. For my own, I have unfortunately been unable to test, as it uses Flash technology (Adobe AIR) and my MIPS computer does not take Flash very well (usually it will crash, if it works at all, anyway). If someone had a chance to test it with publication generated by my plugin, I would be happy to get a feedback...

From myself: but no browser can detect XMPP autodiscovery links. What are they for?!

I am writting a small Firefox plugin for this. Soon more infos!

Do you like to ask questions to yourself? Do you feel lonely?

Maybe. ;-)
