BaseXMPP

class slixmpp.basexmpp.BaseXMPP(jid='', default_ns='jabber:client', **kwargs)[source]

The BaseXMPP class adapts the generic XMLStream class for use with XMPP. It also provides a plugin mechanism to easily extend and add support for new XMPP features.

Parameters:default_ns – Ensure that the correct default XML namespace is used during initialization.
Iq(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Create an Iq stanza associated with this stream.

Message(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Create a Message stanza associated with this stream.

Presence(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Create a Presence stanza associated with this stream.

api = None

The API registry is a way to process callbacks based on JID+node combinations. Each callback in the registry is marked with:

  • An API name, e.g. xep_0030
  • The name of an action, e.g. get_info
  • The JID that will be affected
  • The node that will be affected

API handlers with no JID or node will act as global handlers, while those with a JID and no node will service all nodes for a JID, and handlers with both a JID and node will be used only for that specific combination. The handler that provides the most specificity will be used.

auto_authorize

Auto accept or deny subscription requests.

If True, auto accept subscription requests. If False, auto deny subscription requests. If None, don’t automatically respond.

auto_subscribe

Auto send requests for mutual subscriptions.

If True, auto send mutual subscription requests.

boundjid = None
