mod_post_msg

Introduction

Sometimes it's useful to have different interfaces to access XMPP.

This module allows sending XMPP <message> stanzas via a simple HTTP API.

Example usage

curl http://example.com:5280/msg/user -u me@example.com:mypassword -H "Content-Type: text/plain" -d "Server@host has just crashed!"

This would send a message to user@example.com from me@example.com

Details

URL format

/msg/ [recipient [@host] ].

The base URL defaults to /msg. This can be configured via Prosodys HTTP path settings.

Authentication

Authentication is done by HTTP Basic.

Authentication: Basic BASE64( "username@virtualhost:password" )

Payload formats

Supported formats are:

text/plain
The HTTP body is used as plain text message payload, in the <body> element.
application/x-www-form-urlencoded

application/json
