#XMPP #Jabber group chat:

What are the most powerful #xmpp servers with self-hosting possibility? I am interested in possibility to share images, to federate and stability of work.

#fediwisdom #question #help #foss

gibts Unterschiede bei #email und #XMPP?

ist es nicht das gleiche?

We have created a new open list of XMPP servers #xmpp #jabber


Content warning: computing / internet tech question - XMPP

#OMEMO is a big fish 🐠 in the upcoming #Debian 10 release (#buster) bowl. It hopefully will feature five #XMPP clients with this modern #e2e #encryption: #Gajim, #Dino, #Psi+ (all graphical), #jp (command line), and #primitivus (console), the latter two part of #SalutAToi or #SaT

Kaidan is now on the #Fediverse!

Kaidan is the new modern #XMPP client made with #Qt. It is usable on mobile & desktop platforms thanks to the convergent UI framework #Kirigami!


Content warning: In this post I try to explain the Double Ratchet Algorithm that drives the cryptography behind OMEMO and Signal. This is the second part of my series about the crypto behind OMEMO.

Incidentally, I'm curious about your #xmpp experience. I use it for inter application signaling and very happy with it. It has also been my instant messaging solution for the last 18 years.

That's one hell of a confused opinion.

So #XMPP is an old and clunky protocol (like #HTTP, you add) which therefore should be replaced with something new like #Matrix . Which is an API. Which uses #HTTP as its transport protocol.

That's just one example. To your credit, you managed to squeeze an impressive number of contradictions and non sequiturs in a very short space.

So I'm having my grub and reading a random hacker news thread where people are discussing the relative merits of #signal vs #telegram vs #wire and here I am thinking “#XMPP for god's sake! We don't need no bloody silos!”

Kann ein Admin eines #xmpp Servers das Passwort eines Users zurücksetzen wenn der das vergessen hat oder ist das für immer weg

Suggesting #XMPP as a valid alternative to doesn’t really address the issue of centralisation. If the Matrix network was less centralised instead of all users registering on, this would not have been an issue.

Additionally, XMPP is a dumpster fire of protocol, with patches over patches on an ancient, terribly designed system which doesn’t even support encryption by default. Pretty much like E-Mail and HTTP. It’s time to switch to modern protocols.


XMPP Meetup Berlin: Berlin XMPP sprint gleanings

#xmpp #meetup #berlin

My dream is to use only one foss and decentralized messenger for everything. With @matrix this seems possible now.
I'm currently chatting with people on:


and I'm using only FluffyChat. Not everything is working 100% fine and there is still a lot of work to do. That's why I'm still using Telegram on my phone too.

What I would like to have:
-WhatsApp bridge without the need of an extra device
-XMPP&Telegram direct chats
-SMS bridge

I'm pretty impressed with Movim so far. Aside from having a clean interface and a nice mobile app, it has groups, chatrooms, and editable posts! One-on-one chat works great too (it's built on top of XMPP so one would hope).

If your pod has XMPP enabled, you can log in to a movim pod using your D* account, and if not, there are plenty of places to get a free XMPP account, including

If you decide to check it out, say hi.

The #Wire team are open to the idea of using #XMPP for federation between instances of the Wire server:
"Please feel free to use this issue to post links / papers / reading material of any kind that might help us make a more informed decision"

I'm not an iOS user, but people tell me, that Monal nowadays is better than ChatSecure.
