15.0 > Network > prosody (0.12.3)

Prosody is a server for Jabber/XMPP written in Lua. It aims to be
easy to use and light on resources. For developers, it aims to give a
flexible system on which to rapidly develop added functionality or
rapidly prototype new protocols.

Before you can run prosody you'll need to look in README.SBo.

You need a "prosody" user and group prior to building prosody.
Something like this will suffice for most systems:

groupadd -g 274 prosody
useradd -u 274 -g 274 -s /sbin/nologin -d /var/lib/prosody prosody

Feel free to use a different uid and gid if desired, but 274 is
recommended to avoid conflicts with other stuff from

Optional dependencies:

* luaevent - Efficiently scale above hundreds of concurrent connections
* lua-zlib - Compressing XMPP streams when mod_compression is enabled
* luadbi - SQL database support (SQLite3, MySQL, PostgreSQL)
* LuaBitOp - Efficient bit-level manipulation (used by mod_websocket)

All optional dependencies are available at SBo.

This requires: lua-filesystem, luaexpat, luasec, luasocket
