Your Own Linux Chat Server


Brought to you by: System76

Prosody is a modern flexible communications server for Jabber/XMPP written in Lua. It aims to be easy to set up and configure, and light on resources.

In the midst of the major press blitz surrounding its annual I/O Conference, Google dropped some unfortunate news about its instant messaging plans. In several places around the web, the company is replacing the existing “Talk” platform with a new one called “Hangouts” that sharply diminishes support for the open messaging protocol known as XMPP (or sometimes informally Jabber), and also removes the option to disable the archiving of all chat communications. These changes represent a switch from open protocols to proprietary ones, and a clear step backward for many users.

I setup a Raspberry Pi Model B as an XMPP server running MUC.

Full Featured XMPP Client:

Super Easy LAN Chat:


Source code of Xabber is available at under GNU GPLv3 license.

A free, secure and complete XMPP Server (also called a Jabber Server). The app supports SSL/TLS, multiple users and can be set to automatically start the server when your device is connected to a specific WIFI network!
