Xmpp-uri is a pidgin plugin that adds support for clicking on XMPP URI links (XEP-0147).
This allows you to click on links like
automatically open a chat window. Bots can generate such links for quickly
joining chatrooms or messaging other users.
Pidgin and glib libraries must be installed, along with the usual build tools.
$ git clone https://github.com/jsravn/xmpp-uri.git $ cd xmpp-uri && make install
Then enable the xmpp-uri plugin in Pidgin and you should be set.
Supported actions are described in the plugin menu.
Download and put in your
%APPDATA%/.purple/plugins directory. Restart pidgin and enable it.
Building on Windows
The plugin can also be cross compiled for Windows, but it's a bit more involved.
Make sure you can build pidgin - the same environment is needed to build the plugin.
Then build by pointing to Makefile.mingw.
$ ... # build pidgin inside of ~/devel/pidgin-2.10.7 $ cd ~/devel $ git clone https://github.com/jsravn/xmpp-uri.git $ cd xmpp-uri && make -f Makefile.mingw
You will probably have to change HOST in the Makefile.mingw depending on how your distribution installs mingw.
