I've been working on a library called "Frabjous" for a little while now. It doesn't aim to replace clients like Strophe.js or JsJac, but instead be an ORM for the XMPP protocol. This is to enable better code reuse between projects and reduce the barrier to entry for implementing an XMPP based messaging solution in the browser.
The code is up on github:
Along with a demo which shows how the Ember key value bindings can build a UI with very little code:
So far Frabjous can:
- Deal with basic message types (message, presence) and turn those into contacts with threads etc
- Generate and send stanzas with callback support (currently just a message method on a Contact)
- Link errors received back to the original object
At the moment it doesn't actually hook int Strophe or JsJac, but to add this in will be simple. The focus has to been to demonstrate the concepts before the project is fleshed out.
I'd be really interested to hear any thoughts, criticism and if anyone else is attempting something similar or would like to get involved.
