Telepathy

by Daniel Pimentel — Wed 07 July 2010

Telepathy is a flexible, modular communications framework that enables real-time communication via pluggable protocol backends. Telepathy is a communications service that can be accessed by many applications simultaneously. This allows any application to access presence information, request a communications channel (potentially handled by another client), or collaborate contact-to-contact. Telepathy provides protocol backends for most popular protocols including: Jabber/XMPP/Jingle, link-local XMPP, SIP, Yahoo/AIM and IRC via a unified D-Bus API. It also provides convenience libraries for GLib and Qt to simplify using the API from applications. Telepathy exposes the available real-time communications capabilities of each protocol: presence, contact rosters, text chat, voice and video over IP, file transfer and Telepathy Tubes.
