#summary JSON Encodings for XMPP
#labels Stage-Beta

= Introduction =

This plugin encodes XMPP as JSON. This is an implementation of [ XEP-0295: JSON Encodings for XMPP].

Simply loading this module makes Prosody accept JSON on C2S streams (legacy XML clients are still supported).

For BOSH, it requires mod_bosh be loaded, and JSON should be directed at the `/jsonstreams` HTTP path.

JSON for S2S isn't supported due to the lack of a discovery mechanism, so we have left that disabled to stay compatible with legacy XML servers.

= Configuration =
Just add `"json_streams"` in your config's global `modules_enabled` list, for example:

modules_enabled = {

= Strophe.js plugin =
We also developed a [ JSON streams plugin] for the popular [ strophe.js] library.

Just include it like this after including the strophe library, and your strophe-based client will be speaking JSON:
<script type="text/javascript" src="strophe.jsonstreams.js"></script>
Be sure to set the HTTP path to `/jsonstreams`. No other changes are required.
