Jabber: Support for XEP-0363 (HTTP file upload)
« on: 04 02 2016, 21:28:45 »
Hello dear community!

I have once again a feature request suggestion, and I would love to see if someone recognizes this as useful for implementation. It would be great to see if Miranda NG is going to be capable of using XEP-0363 in the Jabber / XMPP protocol, known as HTTP file upload. This is used as an alternative file sending method to send someone a file when the receiver isn't online, or when the client is not capable of any other file sending methods. More information can be seen here: http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0363.html - This is especially useful for group chats, as this allows in-client file sending without using third party file hosters, which are most likely not as trustworthy as the Jabber server (uploading files to Google, Dropbox, Microsoft doesn't involve any real privacy - looking at the terms of services proves this as a fact).

I'm hoping to see this feature as a part of Miranda NG in the future. Thanks a lot in advance and for reading! :)

I have created the ticket here: http://trac.miranda-ng.org/ticket/1198 - It contains my previous feature suggestion as well (http://forum.miranda-ng.org/index.php?topic=4378.0), to avoid too many tickets. Thank you in advance! :)

By the way, here is a screenshot how it looks like when HTTP upload is used. The Android Jabber app called "Conversations" makes use of it



Sending files from Miranda NG to Conversations and other clients (also group chat) is still a problem, so this is really truly appreciated if you would consider to add this feature in the future. Some great Jabber servers support this feature, so it's basically wasted when this isn't available in Miranda NG. Thank you! :)

Just for info, as a workaround you can use FTPFileYM or Dropbox plugins.
I'm developing mainly Facebook, Omegle, Steam, Dummy and MobileState plugins. ~ If you like my work, you can DONATE to me via Paypal.
