Smack: Some busy nights

Tuesday, January 16th, 2018

Hello everyone!

This weekend I stayed up late almost every evening. Thus I decided that I wanted to code something, but I wasn’t sure what, so I took a look at the list of published XEPs to maybe find something that is easy to implement, but missing from Smack.

I found that XEP-0394: Message Markup was missing from Smacks list of supported extensions, so I began to code. The next day I finished my work and created Smack#194. One or two nights later I again stayed up late and decided to take another look for an unimplemented XEP. I settled on XEP-0382: Spoiler Messages  this time, which was really easy to implement (apart from the one little attribute, which for whatever reason I struggled to parse until I found a solution). The result of that night is Smack#195.

So if you find yourself laying awake one night with no chance to sleep, just look out for an easy to do task on your favourite free software project. I’m sure this will help you sleep better once the task is done.

Happy Hacking!
