>From the DISO list. They're working (amongst other cool things) on
glue to connect Wordpress installations to XMPP/Jabber. This could fit
nicely with the SparqlPress efforts - see
http://wiki.foaf-project.org/SparqlPress as well as with the idea of
binding SPARQL clients and endpoints into XMPP, see

Fun stuff! If anyone here gets it running, let me know...

I've copied the xmpp plugin from the experimental branch into trunk.


One more note for danbri - in the interest of supporting shared hosts
(the majority of WordPress users) I'm not using a persistent process
for the client. I'm toying with the idea of hooking the plugin to
wp-cron and firing off a "sync"-type process every so often. This
would take care of periodically updateing friend/subscription
requests, pubsub notifications, etc. It's not ideal, especially since
I'd like the user to be able to use their "normal" jabber account and
xmpp requires that presence be sent in order to receive notifications,
roster updates, etc.

Mediamatic is also working on an xmpp-http pubsub gateway that might
prove useful:
