[adding sugar-devel as this is of interest also outside OLPC]

I think the idea is to add a palette option somewhere that allows you
to type or paste a contact ID so it will appear in your friends view.
Then you would get presence notification, the ability to chat and
transfer files, and with some extra work, a/v conversations.

If someone would like to jump on this challenge, it's there waiting for you!

 I just tried to run gajim in sugar,  but it seems because the $HOME gets
 defined in a sandboxed environment that is erased each time, so I can't
 keep the configuration :/ On the other hand, I think that writing from
 scratch a jabber client would require much work, and time I don't really
 have. What do you think is appropriate?

 Thanks :)

 Actually, having Chat working as a regular IM client would be very
 interesting and may not be a very big project. The only missing piece
 is being able to add contacts to your roster other than through the
 mesh view.

Chat is at least a partial IM client, with Neighborhood View as a
graphical buddy list. It all runs on Jabber, but only has partial
interoperability with non-Sugar Jabber clients.

With the current stable version of Sugar (0.82 in OLPC 8.2.0) you
cannot see non-Sugar clients in Neighborhood View, but that was an
issue which we have subsequently fixed, and in OLPC 9.1.0 or Sugar
0.84 you will see non-Sugar IM clients as buddies in Neighborhood
View.

If a non-Sugar client finds a Sugar user (XO or other) on a Jabber
server and sends them an IM, it will show up in Sugar as a
notification on the screen corner for a few seconds, and then be
visible as a Chat invitation in the frame. (A better notification
system in Sugar will improve its visibility when it happens...)
Accepting the invitation opens Chat with a one-to-one connection to
the message sender.

Regular use of Chat as a shared activity creates a Jabber MUC (multi
user chat room).

The missing piece at this stage is allowing the Sugar system to
initiate a one-to-one Chat with a non-Sugar IM client on the Jabber
server, perhaps through Neighborhood View.

 I think the idea is to add a palette option somewhere that allows you
 to type or paste a contact ID so it will appear in your friends view.
 Then you would get presence notification, the ability to chat and
 transfer files, and with some extra work, a/v conversations.

If you can search for users on the server with Gadget, then OLPC 9.1.0
and Sugar 0.84 will have the ability to: See non-Sugar IM clients as
buddies, friend them so they will show up again on Neighborhood View
in future, and search for them on the server.

Perhaps we just need to ensure that the search can be by JID even if
it's by nick for the regular use case.

Morgan

 Actually, having Chat working as a regular IM client would be very
 interesting and may not be a very big project. The only missing piece
 is being able to add contacts to your roster other than through the
 mesh view.

Sugar *is* a jabber client, not only Chat but the whole sugar/sucrose.
Chat is used to chat (!) with your contacts, the mesh view is your buddy
list and VideoChat is suppose to be used for... audio/video chat.
The Telepathy framework offers you the possibility to split the
different features of your client (roster, chat, audio chat, logger,
etc) into different applications.

One big missing piece is the ability to add contacts by entering their
jid and UI to accept/decline friend requests. This is
https://dev.laptop.org/ticket/8841

Another one is the ability to run more than one account/connection. Main
problem here is the UI. How should we display that? Tabbed mesh views
maybe?

Once this is done, you'll be able to use your normal IM accounts on
Sugar and be able to chat with them using Chat, send them files using
journal object sharing and call them with VideoChat.

Actually, as Sugar is using Telepathy, it's much more than a Jabber
client. By being a real Telepathy client, it could become a IRC, MSN,
SIP (or whatever protocol) client!
I talked about that during one of my Sugarcamp conf:
http://people.collabora.co.uk/~cassidy/talks/sugar-camp-futur-of-collab.pdf

We'll be happy to help any contributor interested in working on this.
Just come and say hi on #sugar or #telepathy.
But *please*, let's not waste time and resources on implementing a gajim
or pidgin activity. We already have an existing flexible and performant
IM framework; we just need to integrate it properly in Sugar to offer a
rocking user experience.

You need to put the configuration in a special directory:

Re: Jabber client activity

2008-12-21 Thread Sebastian Silva
Still, a regular Jabber client to run in parallel of Chat /
collaboration might be useful. Gajim runs nicely and since its python
perhaps it sugarizes easily enough. Look at the work done on Labyrinth
by tomeu for a similar sugarization.
Yesterday I tried Empathy by the collabora guys and had a voice talk
with frieds using Gtalk, I'm excited to at last have a real free
alternative to skype.

Good luck!

I guess, but I have absolutely no idea on how to configure where you put
your jabber id and your password. So far, I thought it was only useful
inside the mesh networking.

By the way, I just created a Gajim activity inspiring myself from the
Firefox activity, and it seems to work even if sugar integration could
be pushed further. If anyone wants it I think I can put it somewhere.
