OTR Messaging Protocol [native libotr4.x.x]

This module exposes a simple evented API which wraps the native libotr installed. Supports only versions v4.0.0 and above of the library.

Tested on Debian/Ubuntu and Mac OS X

npm install -g node-gyp
apt-get install make awk g++ nodejs-dev libotr5 libotr5-dev
brew install libotr
npm install otr4

If the install fails because compiling failed, check that you have all the pre-requisists installed. After resolving the problem you must reinstall the module:

npm install otr4 --force
