Jaiku (v1.0)



The Jaiku plugin integrates the presence streams from Jaiku (www.jaiku.com) to IRC. It polls the JSON interface on Jaiku and displays presence updates for configured Jaiku users. It is also possible to check the presence of any Jaiku user on request.

The plugin can also poll RSS and ATOM feeds and print feed updates to the IRC channel.

Output examples:

Presence update: [dna] Bintang in Hotel Manhattan, Jakarta, Indonesia [ http://dan79.jaiku.com/presence/26223748 ]
Current presence: dna, Dan Silfvast: 3 hours, 40 minutes ago in Tecnomen HQ, Espoo, Finland. Phone profile: General.
RSS feed update: thevision: It just doesn't work [ http://www.flickr.com/photos/thevision/2146235260/ ]


The configuration file for this plugin is plugins/Jaiku/JaikuConfig.xml


The commands section configures the commands the plugin accepts from IRC. The following commands are currently supported:

  • commandCheckPresence - The command for checking the current presence of a Jaiku user.

You can set the authLevel to control who is allowed to access each command:

    <commandCheckPresence authLevel="none">!jaiku</commandCheckPresence>
