Websites are starting to use URIs which link to xmpp resources. Other applications also have a need to send a query to Gajim using an XMPP URI. Gajim should probably add support for the standard XMPP URI queries as detailed at the URL below.

These URI queries would look like

  • Summary changed from Consider supporting XMPP URI query types to Support XMPP URI

Here is a preliminary patch, that add two things :

  • a join_room command, that simply join a room
  • a handle_uri command, that take a uri and try to do the right thing ( ie, for the moment, join the room if there is ?join, or open a chat dialog ).

I plan to add more, but as smaller patch are easier to review, test ( and to write ), I try to keep this one as simple as possible.

What do you think about it ?

(In [7a2dbe732f740a88870ad1dcabd6a605cb1e2ebb]) [misc] handle uri like room_jid?join. see #2133

it's in. I justmodified it a bit to not have room_jid initialized to room_jid?join in join room dialog.

I've added a new module for handling XMPP URI's as defined in RFC 4622, I've also modified to use this module for the handle_uri function, as well as a minor fix to the argv length checking that was conflicting with how some URI's were being handled.

Currently supported methods for handle_uri are join, message (with body and subject support), roster, remove, and vcard.

xmppuri currently only implements about 30% of the the RFC spec. I will be adding more functionality as I have time. Most of it won't be directly applicable to the code in gajim-remote, but there's currently no RFC 4622 Python library out there so it needs to get done.

A few more bug fixes and added support for the 'type' key for the message querytype. Looking more at this code, I think this is the wrong way to be implementing this. I think moving forward the dbus handler should do the URI handling, not the gajim-remote frontend. This way other applications that talk to gajim over dbus could send URI's directly.

(In [eede7f0239f8]) gajim-remote handles ?message in URIs. Fixes #6804, see #2133 Patch based on joeka's one in #6804
