Credits go to Anoopc
I was looking for a BOSH XMPP client for node and came accross Anoop's node-xmpp-via-bosh implementation. His code was not completely working for me so I forked his code and fixed the issue I was having. I wanted to be able to specify the URL of the BOSH server and I also had some issues with the authorization proces.
npm install node-bosh-xmpp-client
Following you will find the documentation from Anoop which I updated to reflect my changes:
It is an xmpp library which lets you establish a persistent session to xmpp server via a bosh-server and communicate willingly.

alias to `ltx.Element` Constructor
an alias for `new ltx.Element(xname, attrs)` Parameters: *xname* : [string] name for the xml element *attrs* : [Object] containing all the attributes to set up Return value: a new ltx.Element object
an alias for `new ltx.Element("message", attrs)` Parameters: *attrs* : [Object] containing all the attributes to set up Return value: a new ltx.Element object

Artificially set the OVER state in order to no longer answer or send on this connection. This is useful if you are taking the rid/jid/sid to another connection and need this one to stop being 'active' at that time.
sets the logLevel for module (use only when in serious problem i.e. debug mode). Parameters: *logLevel* : [String] permissible values: *FATAL* : displays nothing [default] *ERROR* : displays error messages *INFO* : informs about important events *DEBUG* : prints each packet sent and received
Shout outs go to the Webinos project. They provided the time and need to make this fix.
