OTR3 - Off-the-Record Messaging [native-bindings]

This module exposes a simple evented API which wraps the native libotr installed. Supports only versions v3.2.x of library.

Only tested on Debian/Ubuntu. (If you can help to make it build on windows please do).

Still a work in progress..

Install pre-requisits (debian/ubuntu)

$ apt-get install make awk g++ nodejs nodejs-dev libotr2 libotr2-dev
$ npm install -g node-gyp

Install pre-requisits MacOS - using brew

brew install node
brew install libotr

Getting the module directly from npm registry:

npm install otr3

If the install fails because compiling failed, check that you have all the pre-requisists installed. After resolving the problem you must reinstall the module:

npm install otr3 --force

Getting the Module through git:

git clone https://github.com/mnaamani/node-otr-v2.git node_modules/otr3
cd node_modules/otr3
npm install
