Hi all,
We are planning to implement a Whiteboard functionality in pidgin, which
presently extends to only Yahoo Doodle and Silc. Our plan is to do it on the
XMPP protocol. There is a POC we wrote for Pidgin at:
http://www.rohanjain.in/blog/whiteboarding-with-xmpp-google-talk/#updates.
You might pick up the repository from: github.com/dcrodjer/pidgin_whiteboard
Now we are concentrating on a standard protocol for the same.
The problem that we are basically facing is that there is no accepted
protocol, and most of the XEP's are not recommended, or diverge in ways that
it is difficult to choose one. When I say most, they include:
http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0284.html
http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0228.html
http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0113.html
http://xmpp.org/extensions/inbox/whiteboard2.html
What we would like to know from the community is that, which of the
protocols are really going in production into various whiteboards for XMPP.
I would assume gajim, coincella and the like have implemented some versions
of the same! Also considering interoperability into account, which of the
XEP's are the best to go ahead with.
Hope to hear from you soon.
