Version: git-latest (using Devel)
it seems msn came to their senses... and they support xmpp
Shall we have an account plugin for it?
at least I would like it.
Reproducible: Didn't try
OS: Linux (x86_64) release 3.1.0-2-desktop
Auth handler needs updating in order to support this.
Task 1) find out what auth type it uses
Task 2) implement it
Only then is it worth implementing
that is probably answer to 1)
2) is for the braves
so it seems empathy has this in work already
one of the bugs is already merged.
the comments here may be of use
Some updates here: http://blogs.gnome.org/xclaesse/2011/12/19/updates-on-xmpp-support-in-msn/
I just chatted on #telepathy with xclaesse, here is the log:
[23:29:58] <drdanz> xclaesse: hi, just I read in your blog post that you integrated msn-xmpp in empathy
[23:30:26] <drdanz> can you give me some hints about how to do that?
[23:30:48] <drdanz> *in kde-telepathy
[23:31:50] <xclaesse> drdanz, does kde already have anything doing oauth2?
[23:33:07] <drdanz> we can connect to facebook accounts, but I believe we are doing it in the same way as for the "normal" xmpp accounts
[23:36:26] <drdanz> xclaesse: I'm trying to get an ofT.Channel.Type.ServerAuthentication, but I don't get any from gabble, therefore I'm not sure of what I shoud do...
[23:37:08] <xclaesse> drdanz, MS doc is here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windowslive/hh561460
[23:38:16] <xclaesse> drdanz, basically what you need is display a web page that ask used the login/pass, and it will give you an authorization code, with that code you can make a request to get an access-token, and that access token has to be given to telepathy-gabble when loggin the account
[23:39:35] <xclaesse> drdanz, you need to create an account in MC, with param-account=messenger.live.com
[23:41:02] <xclaesse> drdanz, when gabble will try to connect that account, it will create a SeverAuthentification channel with mechanism X-MESSENGER-OAUTH2
[23:41:39] <drdanz> xclaesse: Ah ok, now I understand something more... param-account=messenger.live.com is a special case?
[23:42:02] <xclaesse> messenger.live.com is their xmpp server
[23:42:41] <xclaesse> will, that's where gabble can make a SRV lookup to get the real server
[23:43:57] <xclaesse> drdanz, FYI the source code to get the access token is here: http://git.gnome.org/browse/gnome-online-accounts/tree/src/goabackend/goaoauth2provider.c and http://git.gnome.org/browse/gnome-online-accounts/tree/src/goabackend/goawindowsliveprovider.c
[23:44:15] <drdanz> xclaesse: thanks a lot!
[23:45:02] <drdanz> I *think* I can try to implement it now!
[23:45:08] <drdanz> thanks!
[23:45:45] <xclaesse> drdanz, once you did the part to get the access token, the telepathy part is there: http://git.gnome.org/browse/empathy/tree/libempathy/empathy-goa-auth-handler.c#n235
[23:46:04] <xclaesse> that's what you need to do in the ServerAuthentification handler
[23:48:04] <drdanz> Ok, that part should be easy, I'm more worried about the web page part :D
[23:48:42] <ocrete> drdanz: dont you have a webkit widget in Qt now anyway ?
[23:49:02] <xclaesse> drdanz, GOA uses webkit and librest
[23:49:10] <xclaesse> surely qt world as similar stuff
[23:49:46] <drdanz> We do, but I never used it, and I suck in gui stuff :D
[23:50:15] <xclaesse> don't worry, MS did the UI for you
[23:50:48] <xclaesse> the magic of web services, all you need is a QWindow with a QWebkit inside :p
[23:51:02] <drdanz> but I believe that choqok (microblog client) has something like that for twitter, so I might try to "steal" their code
[23:51:45] <xclaesse> should be similar
[23:52:03] <xclaesse> but twitter is oauth1 though, afaik (well, according to what I see in goa code)
[23:53:43] <drdanz> hmm we also have a QtOAuth library, that might be useful ;)
[23:54:15] <xclaesse> verify it does oauth2
[23:54:26] <xclaesse> it is sligthly different
[23:55:10] <drdanz> I will, thanks!
[23:57:37] <xclaesse> drdanz, if you want to test manually, open that in your browser: https://oauth.live.com/authorize?response_type=token&redirect_uri=https://oauth.live.com/desktop&client_id=0000000044067703&scope=wl.messenger
[00:00:24] <drdanz> xclaesse: thanks! That page uses empathy client id, doesn't it?
[00:00:45] <xclaesse> that's an app I created myself
[00:00:55] <xclaesse> you can make your own in dev.live.com
[00:01:51] <Hei_Ku`> jpwhitin`: good morning :)
[00:03:37] <xclaesse> drdanz, if you make your app, just make sure to let Redirect domain empty and Mobile client app=yes
