Stanza elements#

class slixmpp.plugins.xep_0172.stanza.UserNick(xml=None, parent=None)[source]#

XEP-0172: User Nickname allows the addition of a <nick> element in several stanza types, including <message> and <presence> stanzas.

The nickname contained in a <nick> should be the global, friendly or informal name chosen by the owner of a bare JID. The <nick> element may be included when establishing communications with new entities, such as normal XMPP users or MUC services.

The nickname contained in a <nick> element will not necessarily be the same as the nickname used in a MUC.

Example stanzas:

<message to="user@example.com">
  <nick xmlns="http://jabber.org/nick/nick">The User</nick>

<presence to="otheruser@example.com" type="subscribe">
  <nick xmlns="http://jabber.org/nick/nick">The User</nick>

Stanza Interface:

nick -- A global, friendly or informal name chosen by a user.

Remove the <nick> element.


Return the nickname in the <nick> element.

interfaces: ClassVar[Set[str]] = {'nick'}#

The set of keys that the stanza provides for accessing and manipulating the underlying XML object. This set may be augmented with the plugin_attrib value of any registered stanza plugins.

iterables: List[ElementBase]#

A list of child stanzas whose class is included in plugin_iterables.

loaded_plugins: Set[str]#
name: ClassVar[str] = 'nick'#

The XML tag name of the element, not including any namespace prefixes. For example, an ElementBase object for <message /> would use name = 'message'.

namespace: str = 'http://jabber.org/protocol/nick'#

The XML namespace for the element. Given <foo xmlns="bar" />, then namespace = "bar" should be used. The default namespace is jabber:client since this is being used in an XMPP library.

parent: Optional[ReferenceType[ElementBase]]#

A weakref.weakref to the parent stanza, if there is one. If not, then parent is None.

plugin_attrib: ClassVar[str] = 'nick'#

For ElementBase subclasses which are intended to be used as plugins, the plugin_attrib value defines the plugin name. Plugins may be accessed by using the plugin_attrib value as the interface. An example using plugin_attrib = 'foo':

register_stanza_plugin(Message, FooPlugin)
msg = Message()
plugins: Dict[Tuple[str, Optional[str]], ElementBase]#

An ordered dictionary of plugin stanzas, mapped by their plugin_attrib value.


Add a <nick> element with the given nickname.


nick – A human readable, informal name.

tag: str#

The name of the tag for the stanza’s root element. It is the same as calling tag_name() and is formatted as '{namespace}elementname'.

xml: ET.Element#

The underlying XML object for the stanza. It is a standard xml.etree.ElementTree object.
