SleekXMPP is an :ref:`MIT licensed <license>` XMPP library for Python 2.6/3.1+,
and is featured in examples in
`XMPP: The Definitive Guide <http://oreilly.com/catalog/9780596521271>`_ 
by Kevin Smith, Remko Tronçon, and Peter Saint-Andre. If you've arrived
here from reading the Definitive Guide, please see the notes on updating
the examples to the latest version of SleekXMPP.

SleekXMPP's design goals and philosphy are:

**Low number of dependencies**
    Installing and using SleekXMPP should be as simple as possible, without
    having to deal with long dependency chains.

    As part of reducing the number of dependencies, some third party
    modules are included with SleekXMPP in the ``thirdparty`` directory.
    Imports from this module first try to import an existing installed
    version before loading the packaged version, when possible.

**Every XEP as a plugin**
    Following Python's "batteries included" approach, the goal is to
    provide support for all currently active XEPs (final and draft). Since
    adding XEP support is done through easy to create plugins, the hope is
    to also provide a solid base for implementing and creating experimental
    XEPs.

**Rewarding to work with**
    As much as possible, SleekXMPP should allow things to "just work" using
    sensible defaults and appropriate abstractions. XML can be ugly to work
    with, but it doesn't have to be that way.

Here's your first SleekXMPP Bot:
--------------------------------

.. code-block:: python

    import logging

    from sleekxmpp import ClientXMPP
    from sleekxmpp.exceptions import IqError, IqTimeout


    class EchoBot(ClientXMPP):

        def __init__(self, jid, password):
            ClientXMPP.__init__(self, jid, password)

            self.add_event_handler("session_start", self.session_start)
            self.add_event_handler("message", self.message)

            # If you wanted more functionality, here's how to register plugins:
            # self.register_plugin('xep_0030') # Service Discovery
            # self.register_plugin('xep_0199') # XMPP Ping

            # Here's how to access plugins once you've registered them:
            # self['xep_0030'].add_feature('echo_demo')

            # If you are working with an OpenFire server, you will
            # need to use a different SSL version:
            # import ssl
            # self.ssl_version = ssl.PROTOCOL_SSLv3

        def session_start(self, event):
            self.send_presence()
            self.get_roster()

            # Most get_*/set_* methods from plugins use Iq stanzas, which
            # can generate IqError and IqTimeout exceptions
            #
            # try:
            #     self.get_roster()
            # except IqError as err:
            #     logging.error('There was an error getting the roster')
            #     logging.error(err.iq['error']['condition'])
            #     self.disconnect()
            # except IqTimeout:
            #     logging.error('Server is taking too long to respond')
            #     self.disconnect()

        def message(self, msg):
            if msg['type'] in ('chat', 'normal'):
                msg.reply("Thanks for sending\n%(body)s" % msg).send()


    if __name__ == '__main__':
        # Ideally use optparse or argparse to get JID, 
        # password, and log level.

        logging.basicConfig(level=logging.DEBUG,
                            format='%(levelname)-8s %(message)s')

        xmpp = EchoBot('somejid@example.com', 'use_getpass')
        xmpp.connect()
        xmpp.process(block=True)
