at long last, a tool to help onboard sheeple into Jabber Texting: XMPP compliance tester (accepts user submissions without github pull fun)

Have them pick a server near the top with an all-green row.  Tolerance can be extended to

  • servers with a red mark in the XEP-0398 column (far right)
  • XEP-0368 deficiency (third from right) can be overcome with manual client hostname specification

Any other red marks renders it an unacceptable social selection.

And now there are some excellent forks of Conversations with superb enhancements

aTalk ambitiously folds in Jitsi (libjitsi;WebRTC) secure video calling, and SIP.  Pix-Art Messenger [renaming it github discussion] is mostly inline with the UI aesthetic but focuses on sociability ‘out of the box’.  Jabber Texting without presence whatnots is of little value.  InputMice is destroying ‘status’ through feature erosion.  Pix-Art Messenger is preserving automatic status.  Other than LONG extended away I see little use for manual status as few will know to seek the text from the colorized availability.  I do miss mood PEP.  Plug-in?

Additionally a Conversations-Jitsi hybrid to watch evolve.

Give some kudos , suggestions, solicit features, or ask questions in the Conversations MUC:

conversations@conference.siacs.eu

Conversations recommends Gajim for windows.  I recommend Psi+ for windows.  For MacOS I plan to recommend Dino.  Monal has some OMEMO capability now.  ZOM is still an adventure few sheeple with enjoy.  ChatSecure has created numerous problems for friends with older iPhones.

If only Jabber Texting apps would cease offering substandard servers for onboarding registration. Ugh.

“Hey, I installed that app you like”

“Oh, my, that’s a horrible server choice”

don’t drown in wordpress  notifications. A mere decade after requesting better Jabber Texting functionality wordpress adds a bit more Jabber Texting integration

https://en.support.wordpress.com/jabber/

Will it pass XMPP compliance testing? Let’s create a new account for submission [todo]

https://compliance.conversations.im

replaces

https://conversations.im/compliance

 

the new instance accepts user test requests submissions once provided with credentials. Now if only the conversations forks (most notably Pix-Art Messenger) could be convinced to offer ONLY 100% green servers we could be happy letting Jabber Texting converts pick any fqdn they fancied.

ZOM gets an F minus for its suggested server list.  Home.zom.im is nearly the worstest [sic].
