[jitsi-users] Is Jitsi a "regular" XMPP server?

Hello,

currently trying to understand what Jitsi is and what it (and the
components) can be used for.

These are my current observations

* Jitsi mostly centers around video conferencing. Be it 1:1 or group
conference
* Jitsi-Meet is more or less the JS library used to talk to several server
side components like the Jitsi-Videobridge (and it's components)
* Chat functionality is something that is integrated into Jitsi-Meet,
during an active conference

What I'm currently missing is if Jitsi can be used as a general text only
chat server?

Currently I'm looking for a solution on how to implement video conferencing
and chat into a web application. Jitsi-meet seems to cover the video part
(1:1, conference) quite well. But I'm not sure if I need some other XMPP
server to cover the text chat functionality or not.

So that the XMPP chat could be either integrated into the web application
itself or be used from a desktop XMPP client as well.

Where does Jitsi fit into this text chat "requirement"?

Many thanks

My understanding is that Jitsi relies on prosody as its XMPP server, and that your app could hook in to that for the XMPP messaging side of things.

That sounds like a plan. Did not dug deep enough as it seems at first. But
not the picture is a bit clearer.

Thanks a lot

That is correct!

Yes! I have been trying to make a custom client, without web–no Javascript, no NodeJS, no element, no web browser. Just stripping it down, to the bare-minimum. How do you go about connecting to Jitsi via XMPP? I am using the recommended Docker setup, and am not able to figure out the user/password/port to connect to. I assume the domain doesn’t matter for connecting to XMPP.

I am trying to connect using a command-line interface, such as Profanity ( https://profanity-im.github.io/ ).
