XMPP server libraries for Node.js

node-xmpp-server

Idiomatic XMPP server library for Node.js

Please see http://node-xmpp.org/doc/server.html for instructions on how to use node-xmpp-server.

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

With package manager npm:

npm install node-xmpp-server

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.

Please see the various examples.

  • Use node.js conventions, especially EventEmitter, ie. for write buffer control
  • Fast parsing, node-expat was written for this library
  • Optional server infrastructure with Router
  • After authentication, leave trivial protocol bits to the user, that is XML handling according to any XEP
  • Client authentication with SASL DIGEST-MD5, PLAIN, ANONYMOUS, X-FACEBOOK-PLATFORM
  • _xmpp-client._tcp SRV record support
  • Simple JID parsing with Stringprep normalization
    • Optional now, you won't need ICU for just node-xmpp
    • Please be aware if you identify users by JIDs
    • npm install node-stringprep
  • Uses ltx
    • Much easier to handle than a standard DOM
    • xmlns-aware
    • Easy XML builder like Strophe.js (see down)
    • Non-buffering serialization
    • Was split out of node-xmpp for modularization and resuability
  • Component connections
  • Run your own server/talk to other servers with xmpp.Router
  • XMPP over WebSocket
  • XMPP over BOSH

Optional

Strophe.js' XML Builder is very convenient for producing XMPP stanzas. ltx includes it in a much more primitive way: the c(), cnode() and t() methods can be called on any Element object, returning the new child element.

This can be confusing: in the end, you will hold the last-added child until you use up(), a getter for the parent. Connection.send() first invokes tree() to retrieve the uppermost parent, the XMPP stanza, before sending it out the wire.
