Send Instant Messages (Notifies) By XMPP (Jabber/Google Talk) From Linux Command Line


sendxmpp is a perl-script to send xmpp (jabber), similar to what mail does for mail. Sendxmpp was written by Dirk-Jan C. Binnema, and is available under the terms of the GNU GPLv2. The hard work is done by Ryan Eatmon’s Net::XMPP-modules, and you need to have them installed for Sendxmpp to work. Obviously, to use sendxmpp , you need a jabber account; they are freely available at jabber.org, but you can also run your own server. The good news is, instant messaging between the Google Talk servers and its clients uses an open protocol, XMPP, allowing users of other XMPP/Jabber clients to communicate with Google Talk users. For more information visit Sendxmpp Web Site.

This tutorial shows how you can compile and install SendXMPP on CentOS 5.5 server.

I do not issue any guarantee that this will work for you!

 

Install XMPP Perl Module

Net::XMPP provides a Perl user with access to the Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP).

perl -MCPAN -e shell
o conf prerequisites_policy follow
o conf commit
install Net::XMPP IO::Socket::SSL exit

 

Install SendXMPP

sendxmpp is a perl-script to send xmpp (jabber), similar to what mail does for mail. Google Talk servers and its clients uses an open protocol, XMPP, allowing users of other XMPP/Jabber clients to communicate with Google Talk users.

cd /tmp
wget http://sendxmpp.platon.sk/sendxmpp-0.0.8.tar.gz
tar -xvf sendxmpp-0.0.8.tar.gz
cd sendxmpp-0.0.8

NOTE!!! : Patch SendXMPP to work with Google Talk (GTalk)!

wget ‘http://platon.sk/cvs/cvs.php/___checkout___/sendxmpp/sendxmpp?rev=1.22&content-type=text/plain’ -O sendxmpp.orig
mv -f sendxmpp.orig sendxmpp
perl Makefile.PL
make
make install

NOTE1: this will install under /usr/local/. If you want to install somewhere else you could do : perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=/usr.

 

Create Sendxmpprc file

echo “# my account” > ~/.sendxmpprc
echo “mygmailuser@gmail.com;talk.google.com mygmailpassword” >> ~/.sendxmpprc
chmod 700 ~/.sendxmpprc
cp -v ~/.sendxmpprc /etc/sendxmpprc

 

Sendxmpp Examples

echo “This is a test IM” | sendxmpp -t -u mygmailuser -o gmail.com -p mygmailpassword receivergmailuser@gmail.com

The above example sends a “This is a test IM” text message from mygmailuser@gmail.com account to the receivergmailuser@gmail.com account.

echo “This is a test IM” | sendxmpp -t -u mygmailuser -o gmail.com -p mygmailpassword receivergmailuser@gmail.com poustchi@jabber.at

The above example sends a “This is a test IM” text message from mygmailuser@gmail.com account to the receivergmailuser@gmail.com and poustchi@jabber.at accounts.

echo “This is a test IM” | sendxmpp -t -u user1 -p pass1 -j jabber.org user2@jabber.at

The above example sends a “This is a test IM” text message from user1@jabber.org account to the user2@jabber.at account.

echo “This is a test IM” | sendxmpp -f /etc/sendxmpprc -t -u mygmailuser -o gmail.com -p mygmailpassword receivergmailuser@gmail.com

The above example sends a “This is a test IM” text message from mygmailuser@gmail.com account to the receivergmailuser@gmail.com account.

cd
vim .bashrc
echo “Logged into “$(hostname)” at “$(date) | sendxmpp -f /etc/sendxmpprc -t -u mygmailuser -o gmail.com -p mygmailpassword receivergmailuser@gmail.com

The above example sends an IM message when a user logs into the server.
