Pidgin ZNC Helper

License Download

ZNC Helper uses message timestamp from a ZNC Bouncer (znc.in/server-time-iso) and sets them within Pidgin so that replayed messages will be displayed with the correct timestamp.

Despite its name, ZNC Helper is independent from Pidgin UI since version 1.8 and therefore should be usable with other libpurple clients, such as finch, too.

Installation on Windows

For the binary version, extract all the contents of pidgin-znc-helper in the ZIP file either to the installation directory of Pidgin (typically C:\Program Files\Pidgin) or to your .purple user directory (typically %APPDATA%\Roaming\.purple).

See below for how to compile the source code version into a binary ZIP file.

Installation on Linux

To install the plugin on Linux you need to extract a release tarball and compile it from source:

sudo apt-get install pidgin-dev
./configure
make
sudo make install

Note: By default the plugin will be installed to /usr/local. If you installed Pidgin through your package manager, it is most likely installed into /usr (i.e. which pidgin returns /usr/bin/pidgin). Use ./configure --prefix=/usr in this case.

Note: When you use the repository directly or one of those auto-generated "Source code" archives, you need to run ./autogen.sh before running ./configure.

Building on Windows

In order to build the plugin for Windows an already-compiled source tree of Pidgin is required. Please see the Pidgin for Windows Build Instructions for details.

After that you need to create a file named local.mak that points to the Pidgin source tree, e.g.:

PIDGIN_TREE_TOP=$(PLUGIN_TOP)/../../pidgin-2.10.11

Now you can build the plugin:

make -f Makefile.mingw
