Profanity is a console based XMPP client inspired by Irssi.

If you like Profanity consider becoming a sponsor or donate some money.

See the User Guide for information on installing and using Profanity.


This project is about freedom, privacy and choice. We want to enable people to chat with one another in a safe way. Thus supporting encryption (OTR, PGP, OMEMO, OX) and being decentralized, meaning everyone can run their own server. We believe XMPP is a great proven protocol with an excellent community serving this purpose well.

Feel free to follow us on twitter, join our mailing list and/or MUC.


Our user guide contains an install section and a section for building from source yourself.


We would highly appreciate it if you support us via GitHub Sponsors. Especially if you make feature requests or need help using Profanity. Sponsoring enables us to spend time on Profanity.

GitHub matches every donation in the first year.

An alternative way to support us would be via Patreon or ask for our IBAN.

Issues backed by a sponsor will be tagged with the sponsored label. Feature requests that we consider out of scope, either because of interest or because of time needed to implement them, will be marked with the unfunded label.

Another way to sponsor us or get an issue solved is to create a bug bounty. Here one sets a bounty on a certain task and once the task is completed you send the money to the person who did the work.

Tasks from our sponsors will be tackled first.

Thank you! <3
