collective.chat.buildout provides a helper buildout to enable you to deploy
XMPP-enabled add-ons for Plone.
Currently it includes three XMPP add-ons.
- collective.xmpp.core which integrates XMPP into Plone (zero user-facing
More XMPP add-ons will be adoded as they are being developed for Plone.
XMPP server and reverse proxy
This buildout will also install the 'ejabberd XMPP server and `Nxinx`_ to serve as a reverse proxy for ejabberd's connection manager (the connection manager provides a bridge between the XMPP server and the browser which speaks HTTP).

collective.chat.core requires an admin XMPP user to be able to register new
XMPP users whenever new Plone users are created.

./bin/ejabberdctl register admin localhost your_password
