    Biboumi - XMPP gateway to IRC

    Timothée Jaussoin – pubsub.movim.eu / Movim – Tuesday, 19 September - 14:37 - Tuesday, 19 September - 14:40

A little recommandation today. We are using #Biboumi on the movim.eu XMPP server to allow our users to connect to the #IRC network using their account. You can find the service at irc.movim.eu.

Biboumi is a really nice IRC #bridge. It is quite simple to deploy and connect to your #XMPP server and is even packaged in many Linux distributions, including Debian!

Once everything is setup correctly (you can find the official documentation on their website) you can simply connect your account to a chatroom by adding a MUC in your bookmarks using this syntax:


Thanks to the Biboumi team for this awesome piece of software!

    +1 For biboumi! For debian though, see https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=857658

    Installed Biboumi on our pod. Really nice. ejabberd ships with an IRC transport, but that stopped working a while ago. Now I have two more bugs on my metres-long to-do list: Help fix the Debian bug mentioned above, and implement correct JID validation in Movim, as I cannot join some of my IRC channels in Movim due to it prohibiting some valid characters in JIDs.
