Send an xmpp message using a python library
How can I send an XMPP message using one of the following Python libraries: wokkel, xmpppy, or jabber.py ?
I think I am aware of the pseudo-code, but so far have not been able to get one running correctly. This is what I have tried so far:
- Call some API and pass the servername and port number to connect to that server.
- Call some API and pass the username, password to construct a JID object.
- Authenticate with that JID.
- Construct a Message object and call some API and pass that message obj in the argument.
- Call some send API.
It seems easy enough in concept, but the devil is somewhere in the details. Please show a sample snippet if that's possible.
This is the simplest possible xmpp client. It will send a 'hello :)' message. I'm using xmpppy in the example. And connecting to gtalk server. I think the example is self-explanatory:
import xmpp username = 'username' passwd = 'password' firstname.lastname@example.org' msg='hello :)' client = xmpp.Client('gmail.com') client.connect(server=('talk.google.com',5223)) client.auth(username, passwd, 'botty') client.sendInitPresence() message = xmpp.Message(to, msg) message.setAttr('type', 'chat') client.send(message)
xmpppy has a number of examples listed on its main page (under "examples"), the most basic of which sends a single test message. They make the examples progressively more interesting -- they introduce the callback-oriented API via a chat bot program.
