Squawk - a compact XMPP desktop messenger

AUR license AUR version Liberapay patrons

Squawk screenshot

Prerequisites

  • QT 5.12 (lower versions might work but it wasn’t tested)
  • uuid (usually included in some other package, for example it’s libutil-linux in archlinux)
  • lmdb
  • CMake 3.0 or higher
  • qxmpp 1.1.0 or higher
  • kwallet (optional)

Getting

The easiest way to get the Squawk is to install it from AUR (if you use Archlinux like distribution)

Here is the link for the AUR package

You can also install it from console if you use some AUR wrapper. Here what it’s going to look like with pacaur

$ pacaur -S squawk

Building

You can also clone the repo and build it from source

Squawk requires Qt with SSL enabled. It uses CMake as build system.

There are two ways to build, it depends whether you have qxmpp installed in your system

Building with system qxmpp

Here is what you do

$ git clone https://git.macaw.me/blue/squawk
$ cd squawk
$ mkdir build
$ cd build
$ cmake ..
$ cmake --build .

Building with bundled qxmpp

Here is what you do

$ git clone --recurse-submodules https://git.macaw.me/blue/squawk
$ cd squawk
$ mkdir build
$ cd build
$ cmake .. -D SYSTEM_QXMPP=False
$ cmake --build .

List of keys

Here is the list of keys you can pass to configuration phase of cmake ...

  • CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE - Debug just builds showing all warnings, Release builds with no warnings and applies optimizations (default is Debug)
  • SYSTEM_QXMPP - True tries to link against qxmpp installed in the system, False builds bundled qxmpp library (default is True)
  • WITH_KWALLET - True builds the KWallet capability module if KWallet is installed and if not goes to False. False disables KWallet support (default is True)
