biboumi - XMPP gateway to IRC

DESCRIPTION
-----------
Description
===========

Biboumi is an XMPP gateway that connects to IRC servers and translates
between the two protocols. It can be used to access IRC channels using any
XMPP client as if these channels were XMPP MUCs.

SYNOPSIS
--------
Synopsis
========

`biboumi` [`config_filename`]
biboumi [*config_filename*\ ]

  details on its content.
Specify the file to read for configuration. See *CONFIG* section for more
details on its content.

CONFIG
------
Configuration
=============

The configuration file uses a simple format of the form
`"option=value"`. Here is a description of each possible option:

`hostname` (mandatory)

  The hostname served by the XMPP gateway.  This domain must be configured in
  the XMPP server as an external component.  See the manual for your XMPP
  server for more information.
  For prosody, see http://prosody.im/doc/components#adding_an_external_component

`password` (mandatory)

  The password used to authenticate the XMPP component to your XMPP server.
  This password must be configured in the XMPP server, associated with the
  external component on *hostname*.

`xmpp_server_ip`

  The IP address to connect to the XMPP server on. The connection to the XMPP
  server is unencrypted, so the biboumi instance and the server should normally
  be on the same host. The default value is 127.0.0.1.

`port`
``option=value``. Here is a description of each possible option:

  The TCP port to use to connect to the local XMPP component. The default
  value is 5347.

`admin`
The configuration can be re-read at runtime (you can for example change the
log level without having to restart biboumi) by sending SIGUSR1 or SIGUSR2
(see kill(1)) to the process.

  The bare JID of the gateway administrator. This JID will have more
  privileges than other standard users (the admin thus needs to check their
  privileges), for example some administration ad-hoc commands will only be
  available to that JID.
hostname
--------

`fixed_irc_server`
Mandatory. The hostname served by the XMPP gateway.  This domain must be
configured in the XMPP server as an external component.  See the manual
for your XMPP server for more information.  For prosody, see
http://prosody.im/doc/components#adding_an_external_component

  If this option contains the hostname of an IRC server (for example
  irc.example.org), then biboumi will enforce the connexion to that IRC
  server only.  This means that a JID like "#chan@biboumi.example.com" must
  be used instead of "#chan%irc.example.org@biboumi.example.com".  In that
  mode, the virtual channel (see *Connect to an IRC server*) is not
  available and you still need to use the ! separator to send message to an
  IRC user (for example "foo!@biboumi.example.com" to send a message to
  foo), although the in-room JID still work as expected
  ("#channel@biboumi.example.com/Nick").  On the other hand, the '%' lose
  any meaning.  It can appear in the JID but will not be interpreted as a
  separator (thus the JID "#channel%hello@biboumi.example.com" points to the
  channel named "#channel%hello" on the configured IRC server) This option
  can for example be used by an administrator that just wants to let their
  users join their own IRC server using an XMPP client, while forbidding
  access to any other IRC server.
password
--------

`realname_customization`
Mandatory. The password used to authenticate the XMPP component to your
XMPP server.  This password must be configured in the XMPP server,
associated with the external component on *hostname*.

 If this option is set to “false” (default is “true”), the users will not be
 able to use the ad-hoc commands that lets them configure their realname and
 username.
xmpp_server_ip
--------------

`realname_from_jid`
The IP address to connect to the XMPP server on. The connection to the
XMPP server is unencrypted, so the biboumi instance and the server should
normally be on the same host. The default value is 127.0.0.1.

 If this option is set to “true”, the realname and username of each biboumi
 user will be extracted from their JID.  The realname is their bare JID, and
 the username is the node-part of their JID.  Note that if
 `realname_customization` is “true”, each user will still be able to
 customize their realname and username, this option just decides the default
 realname and username.
port
----

 If this option is set to “false” (the default value), the realname and
 username of each user will be set to the nick they used to connect to the
 IRC server.
The TCP port to use to connect to the local XMPP component. The default
value is 5347.

`webirc_password`
admin
-----

 Configure a password to be communicated to the IRC server, as part of the
 WEBIRC message (see https://kiwiirc.com/docs/webirc).  If this option is
 set, an additional DNS resolution of the hostname of each XMPP server will
 be made when connecting to an IRC server.
The bare JID of the gateway administrator. This JID will have more
privileges than other standard users (the admin thus needs to check their
privileges), for example some administration ad-hoc commands will only be
available to that JID.

fixed_irc_server
----------------

If this option contains the hostname of an IRC server (for example
irc.example.org), then biboumi will enforce the connexion to that IRC
server only.  This means that a JID like "#chan@biboumi.example.com" must
be used instead of "#chan%irc.example.org@biboumi.example.com".  In that
mode, the virtual channel (see `Connect to an IRC server`_) is not
available and you still need to use the ! separator to send message to an
IRC user (for example "foo!@biboumi.example.com" to send a message to
foo), although the in-room JID still work as expected
("#channel@biboumi.example.com/Nick").  On the other hand, the '%' lose
any meaning.  It can appear in the JID but will not be interpreted as a
separator (thus the JID "#channel%hello@biboumi.example.com" points to the
channel named "#channel%hello" on the configured IRC server) This option
can for example be used by an administrator that just wants to let their
users join their own IRC server using an XMPP client, while forbidding
access to any other IRC server.

realname_customization
----------------------

If this option is set to “false” (default is “true”), the users will not be
able to use the ad-hoc commands that lets them configure their realname and
username.

realname_from_jid
-----------------

If this option is set to “true”, the realname and username of each biboumi
user will be extracted from their JID.  The realname is their bare JID, and
the username is the node-part of their JID.  Note that if
``realname_customization`` is “true”, each user will still be able to
customize their realname and username, this option just decides the default
realname and username.

If this option is set to “false” (the default value), the realname and
username of each user will be set to the nick they used to connect to the
IRC server.

webirc_password
---------------

Configure a password to be communicated to the IRC server, as part of the
WEBIRC message (see https://kiwiirc.com/docs/webirc).  If this option is
set, an additional DNS resolution of the hostname of each XMPP server will
be made when connecting to an IRC server.

### Addressing

IRC channels have a local part formed like this:
`channel_name`%`irc_server`.
``channel_name`` % ``irc_server``.

other character, announced by the IRC server, like `'&'`, `'+'` or `'!'`),

other character, announced by the IRC server, like ``'&'``, ``'+'`` or ``'!'``),

well as some IRC clients, do not require them to be started by one of these
characters, adding an implicit `'#'` in that case.  Biboumi does not do that
characters, adding an implicit ``'#'`` in that case.  Biboumi does not do that
because this gets confusing when trying to understand the difference between
the channels *#foo*, and *##foo*. Note that biboumi does not use the
presence of these special characters to identify an IRC channel, only the
presence of the separator `%` is used for that.

The channel name can also be empty (for example `%irc.example.com`), in that

There is two ways to address an IRC user, using a local part like this:
`nickname`!`irc_server`
``nickname`` ! ``irc_server``
or by using the in-room address of the participant, like this:
`channel_name`%`irc_server`@`biboumi.example.com`/`Nickname`
``channel_name`` % ``irc_server`` @ ``biboumi.example.com`` / ``Nickname``

The second JID is available only to be compatible with XMPP clients when the
user wants to send a private message to the participant `Nickname` in the
room `channel_name%irc_server@biboumi.example.com`.

--------

On XMPP, the encoding is always `UTF-8`, whereas on IRC the encoding of
On XMPP, the encoding is always ``UTF-8``, whereas on IRC the encoding of
each message can be anything.

This means that biboumi has to convert everything coming from IRC into UTF-8
without knowing the encoding of the received messages.  To do so, it checks
if each message is UTF-8 valid, if not it tries to convert from
`iso_8859-1` (because this appears to be the most common case, at least
on the channels I visit) to `UTF-8`.  If that conversion fails at some
point, a placeholder character `'�'` is inserted to indicate this
``iso_8859-1`` (because this appears to be the most common case, at least
on the channels I visit) to ``UTF-``.  If that conversion fails at some
point, a placeholder character ``'�'`` is inserted to indicate this

circumvent this problem, biboumi provides a raw notification when modes are

### Ad-hoc commands
Ad-hoc commands
---------------

Biboumi supports a few ad-hoc commands, as described in the XEP 0050.
Different ad-hoc commands are available for each JID type.

    disconnected from all the IRC servers to which they were connected,
    using the provided quit message. Sending SIGINT to biboumi is equivalent
    to using this command by selecting all the connected JIDs and using the
    “Gateway shutdown” quit message, except that biboumi does not exit when

    IRC server.  The user is immediately disconnected by closing the socket,
    no message is sent to the IRC server, but the user is of course notified
    with an XMPP message.  The administrator can disconnect any user, while
    the other users can only disconnect themselves.
