XMPP component for Node.js

build status js-standard-style


Please see for instructions on how to use node-xmpp-component.


Note: We now only support nodejs versions 0.8.0 and greater.

With package manager npm:

npm install node-xmpp-component


Install the dev dependencies, then...

npm test

Also see the tests run in travis. The tests in travis run both the code and code style tests.

Integration tests

There are also a small number of integration tests designed to be run against Prosody. To run these ensure the user the test is run as has sudo access. Copy the prosody configuration file from test/resources/prosody.cfg.lua to /etc/prosody/prosody.cfg.lua.

How to use

Please see the various examples.

Objectives of node-xmpp:

  • Use node.js conventions, especially EventEmitter, ie. for write buffer control
  • Client support for both XMPP clients and components
