async get_preferences(**iqkwargs)[source]#

Get the current MAM preferences.

Return type

Tuple[Literal[‘always’, ‘never’, ‘roster’], List[JID], List[JID]]


A tuple of MAM preferences with (default, always, never)

set_preferences(default='roster', always=None, never=None, *, ito=None, ifrom=None, **iqkwargs)[source]#

Set MAM Preferences.

The server answer MAY contain different items.

  • default (Optional[Literal[‘always’, ‘never’, ‘roster’]]) – Default behavior (one of ‘always’, ‘never’, ‘roster’).

  • always (Optional[List[JID]]) – List of JIDs whose messages will always be stored.

  • never (Optional[List[JID]]) – List of JIDs whose messages will never be stored.

Return type


Stanza elements#

class slixmpp.plugins.xep_0441.stanza.Preferences(xml=None, parent=None)[source]#

MAM Preferences payload.

<iq type='set' id='juliet3'>
  <prefs xmlns='urn:xmpp:mam:2' default='roster'>
Return type


Return type


interfaces: ClassVar[Set[str]] = {'always', 'default', 'never'}#

Available interfaces:

  • default: Default MAM policy (must be one of ‘roster’, ‘always’, ‘never’

  • always (List[JID]): list of JIDs to always store conversations with.

  • never (List[JID]): list of JIDs to never store conversations with.

iterables: List[ElementBase]#

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

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

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 = 'urn:xmpp:mam:2'#

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] = 'mam_prefs'#

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.

sub_interfaces: ClassVar[Set[str]] = {'always', 'never'}#

A subset of interfaces which maps interfaces to direct subelements of the underlying XML object. Using this set, the text of these subelements may be set, retrieved, or removed without needing to define custom methods.

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.
