Usage

Installation

sudo gem install blather

Example

See the examples directory for more advanced examples.

This will auto-accept any subscription requests and echo back any chat messages.

require 'rubygems'
require 'blather/client'

setup 'echo@jabber.local', 'echo'

# Auto approve subscription requests
subscription :request? do |s|
  write s.approve!
end

# Echo back what was said
message :chat?, :body do |m|
  write m.reply
end

Handlers

Setup handlers by calling their names as methods.

# Will only be called for messages where #chat? responds positively
# and #body == 'exit'
message :chat?, :body => 'exit'

Handler Guards

Guards act like AND statements. Each condition must be met if the handler is to be used.

# Equivalent to saying (stanza.chat? && stanza.body)
message :chat?, :body

The different types of guards are:

# Symbol
#   Checks for a non-false reply to calling the symbol on the stanza
#   Equivalent to stanza.chat?
message :chat?

# Hash with any value (:body => 'exit')
#   Calls the key on the stanza and checks for equality
#   Equivalent to stanza.body == 'exit'
message :body => 'exit'

# Hash with regular expression (:body => /exit/)
#   Calls the key on the stanza and checks for a match
#   Equivalent to stanza.body.match /exit/
message :body => /exit/

# Hash with array (:name => [:gone, :forbidden])
#   Calls the key on the stanza and check for inclusion in the array
#   Equivalent to [:gone, :forbidden].include?(stanza.name)
stanza_error :name => [:gone, :fobidden]

# Proc
#   Calls the proc passing in the stanza
#   Checks that the ID is modulo 3
message proc { |m| m.id % 3 == 0 }

# Array
#   Use arrays with the previous types effectively turns the guard into
#   an OR statement.
#   Equivalent to stanza.body == 'foo' || stanza.body == 'baz'
message [{:body => 'foo'}, {:body => 'baz'}]

# XPath
#   Runs the xpath query on the stanza and checks for results
#   This guard type cannot be combined with other guards
#   Equivalent to !stanza.find('/iq/ns:pubsub', :ns => 'pubsub:namespace').empty?
iq '/iq/ns:pubsub', :ns => 'pubsub:namespace'

Filters

Blather provides before and after filters that work much the way regular handlers work. Filters come in a before and after flavor. They're called in order of definition and can be guarded like handlers.

before { |s| "I'm run before any handler" }
before { |s| "I'm run next" }

before(:message) { |s| "I'm only run in front of message stanzas" }
before(nil, :id => 1) { |s| "I'll only be run when the stanza's ID == 1" }

# ... handlers

after { |s| "I'm run after everything" }

On the Command Line:

Default usage is:

[blather_script] [options] node@domain.com/resource password [host] [port]

Command line options:

-D, --debug                      Run in debug mode (you will see all XMPP communication)
-d, --daemonize                  Daemonize the process
    --pid=[PID]                  Write the PID to this file
    --log=[LOG]                  Write to the [LOG] file instead of stdout/stderr
-h, --help                       Show this message
-v, --version                    Show version

TODO

  • Add Disco the the DSL

  • More examples (Re-write XMPP4R examples into Blather)
