yaxim (Yet Another XMPP Instant Messenger)
yaxim is a Jabber/XMPP client with open source (GPLv2). Why pay for SMS if you can have unlimited messaging on your data plan?
yaxim aims at security, low overhead and keeping your server connection open. So far, it only supports a single account.
Check the yaxim homepage for latest news and downloads.
The following is already supported:
- Connection with a single XMPP server (or GTalk, or Facebook Chat, or ...)
- You are asked about self-signed SSL certificates
- Allows automatic connection after turning on your phone
- Transparent reconnection on 3G/WiFi network change (XEP-0198)
- Chat with your buddies (all messages are stored)
- Delivery receipts (XEP-0184)
- Message carbons (XEP-0280)
To compile yaxim, the following steps need to be taken:
# fetch source code from github git clone email@example.com:pfleidi/yaxim.git cd yaxim # initialize submodules git submodule init git submodule update # prepare android build (with subprojects) android update project -p . -s android update project -p ActionBarSherlock/actionbarsherlock android update project -p MemorizingTrustManager --subprojects # compile debug version ant proguard debug # compile release version ant proguard release
If you are using a different build environment, consider the following things:
- You need to generate
build_versionstring. The template is in
- Without ProGuard, the compiled binary will be around 30% larger.
