An XMPP BOSH session pre-initializer for Ruby web applications
Ruby

README

ruby_bosh
=========

The RubyBOSH library handles creating and pre-authenticating BOSH streams inside your Ruby application before passing them off to your template engine. 

This method allows you to hide authentication details for your users' XMPP accounts.  

Tested on Rails 2.x with eJabberd 1.2+

References

XMPP via BOSH: http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0206.html

Example
=======
In your Ruby app controller (or equivalent):

@session_jid, @session_id, @session_random_id = 
  RubyBOSH.initialize_session("me@jabber.org", "my_password", "http://localhost:5280/http-bind")

If you want to define your own resource name, include it within the jid.  RubyBOSH will create a random one if none is supplied.
To define a resource name of 'home', do the following:

@session_jid, @session_id, @session_random_id = 
  RubyBOSH.initialize_session("me@jabber.org/home", "my_password", "http://localhost:5280/http-bind")

In your template, you would then pass these directly to your javascript BOSH connector:

var bosh_jid = '<%= @session_jid %>';
var bosh_sid = '<%= @session_id %>';
var bosh_rid = '<%= @session_random_id %>';

// using Strophe:
connect.attach(bosh_jid, bosh_sid, bosh_rid, onConnectHandlerFunction);
