This module largely duplicates the functionality of the standard mod_announce that is included with Prosody. It was developed for compatibility with some clients (e.g. iChat) that do not support ad-hoc commands or sending to JIDs with the format ‘’.

It may also be useful in other specific cases.


Component "" "broadcast"

By default, only server admins are allowed to post to this address. You can override this, by specifying the ‘broadcast_senders’ option:

Component "" "broadcast"
    broadcast_senders = { "", "" }


0.9 Works
0.10 Works
trunk Doesn’t work (uses is_admin)


With the plugin installer in Prosody 0.12 you can use:

sudo prosodyctl install --server= mod_broadcast
