    Happy Birthday, XMPP! 20th Anniversary of 1st Jabber Server

    debacle – Thursday, 3 January - 21:37 edit

XMPP a.k.a. Jabber, a communication protocol for message-oriented middleware is probably the most mature technology for free and federated instant messaging. (IRC is far older, of course.) On 2019-01-04 we can celebrate the 20th anniversary of the first XMPP server release:

Jeremie Miller began working on the Jabber technology in 1998 and released the first version of the jabberd server on January 4, 1999.

In the last twenty years, we have seen protocols and services come and go, but XMPP, an IETF standard, is here to stay. It is backed by an international community of developers, does not depend on a single company, and is enhanced continuously by the XSF. Btw.: XMPP is not only used for chatting, but also for IoT, WebRTC, micro-blogging and social networks!

PS: ‎Ge0rG‎ pointed to the link to the original announcement on Slashdot. It reads:

Jeremie writes

"Jabber is a new project I recently started to create a complete open-source platform for Instant Messaging with transparent communication to other IM systems(ICQ, AIM, etc). Most of the initial design and protocol work is done, as well as a working server and a few test clients."

    The perfect ejabberd server setup using ansible

    debacle – pubsub.movim.eu / berlin-xmpp-meetup – Wednesday, 2 January - 11:35 edit

The perfect ejabberd server setup using ansible

After having heard about the theoretical part of a perfect XMPP server setup in Holger's talk, Linus will now show us how to do this in practice with ejabberd. For this purpose we're going to use the configuration management tool ansible, which will automate the setup process. This makes it much easier to move your setup to a different machine or reinstalling it. After having a look into how the ansible scripts work and what they do on the server, we'll also do a live demonstration.

The ansible scripts cover the setup of ejabberd, Let's Encrypt-certificates, an SQL database with MySQL/MariaDB or PostgreSQL, HTTP File Upload and ejabberd admin interface with reverse proxy using nginx and sslh for multiplexing XMPP/XMPPS/HTTPS on a single port (that can be useful if you're behind a firewall). You can also enable nextcloud authentication, but we won't go into many details on that topic.

    On basic principle of the hacker ethic is decentralization. So please don’t use all the same server. Only one server can easily be monitored or censored, by taking down the server. Here is a …
