- psyced supports the following protocols and formats:
- PSYC, Jabber™/XMPP S2S, IRC, TELNET, HTTP, SMTP, OAuth, XML, RSS.
- It also has limited/experimental code for the following things:
- Clients using XMPP C2S, Java Applets, Status.Net, Twitter API, WAP, NNTP.
At the XMPP Interop Event psyced has proven to be a solid if not cutting edge implementation of interserver XMPP. Good news for everyone who prefers to use IRC or PSYC clients rather than Jabber.
Event Notification! psyced now accepts alerts by e-mail and redistributes them in multicast chatrooms, or it informs you of incoming mail thru procmail integration.
psyced is the first piece of software to implement three different types of interserver protocols by also learning how to connect to an IRC network as a server, not as a client or service. This means full PSYC integration for any existing IRC network. Read more!
New friendsnets functions! We have a new web-based profile view.
It allows you to surf along your social network of friends and friends
of friends, without ever leaving the web server of your homeserver,
because the profiles are transferred by the PSYC protocol.
To actually see your own and your friends' pages, you have to issue /surf, then follow the link. This only works if you have the webserver enabled in your psyced.
You can expose your friends in your profile, but still control it the way you want it, using the new commands /expose, /trust and /set exposefriends. Specify who gets to see what, if you want.
You can even specify your own style sheet and profile photos using /set stylefile and /set photofile. Make your web profile look really nifty, even if it never exists as a web page really. You can also link the photo to a /set photopage.
It's not that PSYC is about nifty profile pages, but we're heading towards providing an open, decentralized and privacy enhanced alternative to the big centralistic social network companies, while also trying to be the best chat technology in the universe. ;-)
We took an unusual step in resolving the issue that Jabber™ clients like to address people by "user@host" regardless if these users are on XMPP or PSYC. psyced will now simply try both protocol schemes and find people no matter if they are still using a Jabber server or have switched to a PSYC server.
And here's what is currently happening in the PSYC developer room psyc://psyced.org/@welcome on our homeserver.. visible thanks to psyced's by-the-way web publishing and chat export functionalities.
