Hi! Prosody is becoming a ClearOS app, as part of Tiki Suite.
What is ClearOS? What is Tiki Suite? Let me give you some background information :-) Tiki Suite is a selection of Free / Libre / Open Source Software (FLOSS) server, web, mobile and desktop apps with a concerted focus on greater interoperability, security and adaptability, which is aimed at small & medium-sized organizations. The Tiki Suite is especially suited to decentralized and knowledge-centric organizations and offers most (80%+) of the features all organizations need, such as: Email, Website & Blog, Shopping Cart, Intranet & Project Management, E-learning, Social Networking, Knowledge base, File sharing, Issue Tracker, Video-conferencing, LDAP, VPN, Gateway, Network, etc. You can install anywhere (home, office, laptop, data center, etc.) https://suite.tiki.org/Tiki+Suite "How come all our systems can't work together?" is a common frustration. Most organizations use dozens or even hundreds of software applications, systems and online services. Interoperability between them is a constant struggle. Time is wasted moving data from system to system. Data & feature duplication, data silos, dependency hell, etc. Organizations are held back by the complexity. Tiki Suite is arguably the most features you could ever get from a relatively small number of components. https://suite.tiki.org/Tiki+Suite+Features Each component of the suite has a proven track record to manage its own internal complexities, and, as a community, we are handling the interoperability between the components. So your organization can maintain full control of all your data, with Free / Libre / Open Source software (FLOSS). You can self-host on premise or on rented servers. It can be customized to your needs. And we urge you to contribute to this community-driven and innovative project. This project was born out of Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware. Tiki is 11 years old and: * http://tiki.org/FLOSS+Web+Application+with+the+most+built-in+features * http://tiki.org/FLOSS+Web+Application+with+the+fastest+release+cycle * http://info.tiki.org/article188-Tiki-reaches-500-contributors-with-commit-access * http://info.tiki.org/article192-Tiki-Passes-1-Million-Downloads Tiki's success is due to a lot of hard work of course, but also to its unique development model. All projects are unique, but the "Tiki model" is more unique than most :-) Now, the Tiki Model has been extended to a software suite: https://tiki.org/Model ClearOS is a cloud-connected Server, Network, and Gateway operating system designed for homes and distributed organizations. ClearOS is a central component of Tiki Suite and has a very large number of well integrated features to choose from: Mail & Webmail, LDAP, VPN & Firewall, etc. Most of the apps are available via a point & click web interface and Prosody is becoming one of these apps. For special needs or things not yet available as apps, it's a GNU/Linux distro based on a "Prominent North American Enterprise Linux Vendor" so you can install from RPM, etc. http://www.clearfoundation.com/ https://suite.tiki.org/ClearOS The Real Time Communication (RTC) part of Tiki Suite is inspired by the excellent http://www.rtcquickstart.org/ guide. We want this to become as much as possible a point & click installation experience, using Prosody as the XMPP component. A key part of Tiki Suite is to have a high level of integration between the components. For example, users have the same logins in all the apps. Thus, when you create a user in the ClearOS user system (which is OpenLDAP), this login works for all apps: Prosody & Jitsi, Tiki, Zarafa & Thunderbird, ActiveSync, OpenVPN, File shares (Samba), Kaltura & BigBlueButton. The Prosody part is documented here: http://www.clearcenter.com/support/documentation/clearos_guides/setting_up_prosody_on_clearos http://www.clearcenter.com/support/documentation/clearos_guides/configuring_prosody_to_work_with_pam_and_the_directory_behind_it Special thanks to Matthew Wild (Prosody) and Dave Loper (ClearOS) for the solution and documentation. The next step is to turn this into a point & click experience. Another key part of Tiki Suite is Jitsi and Jitsi Meet. Jitsi provisioning via Tiki is part of upcoming Tiki 12.3: https://doc.tiki.org/Jitsi https://suite.tiki.org/Jitsi We look forward to collaborating with you all and we are looking for testers and contributors to make it as awesome as it can be!
