This is a simple application which listens on DBus for Pidgin messages and exposes them to a web interface.


I don't know how useful this could be/this is because I just clobbed this together for fun and learning purpose. If you have ideas on how to use or extend this don't hesitate to tell me.

Todo list

  • replace the UI with something better
  • no ideas yet


  1. Start Pidgin
  2. rake db:migrate
  3. ruby init.rb
  4. wait until you receive a message
  5. check http://localhost:4567
