I want to set up XMPP for use with family. How do I go about it? Would you recommend a XMPP server program that I can run? Or is there a recommended hosted service?

@ns Have a look at @snikket_im. I'm not sure of it's ready yet. If not, Prosody is really simple to setup if you have basic knowledge about servers. :)


XMPP for family is one of our favourite use-cases for Snikket! We try to make self-hosting as easy as possible, but do also understand there are various reasons this may not be feasible.

We're working on launching a hosted service for those that need it, and want a refuge from those messaging apps with shadier business models... 🕵🏻
