This module listens to MUC messages and sends a notification to the MUC members not present in the MUC at that moment.

By default, the notification will be a message with a simple text as body.

By sending this “out-of-MUC” notification, not-joined members will be able to know that new messages are available.


First copy the module to the prosody plugins directory.

Then add “muc_notifications” to your modules_enabled list in your MUC component:

Component "" "muc"
modules_enabled = {

You may also want to enable “offline_hints” module so the notification messages sent by this module are not added to the offline storage for later delivery.


Option Description
muc_notification_invite If set to true, the notification sent will take the form of a MUC invite. (default: false)


With the plugin installer in Prosody 0.12 you can use:

sudo prosodyctl install --server= mod_muc_notifications
