gajima Jabber/XMPP client

gajim -h

gajim [-q] [-v] [-w] [-l subsystem=level] [-p name] [-s] [-c directory]

gajim is a Jabber/XMPP client written in Python and GTK+. gajim works nicely with GNOME, yet it does not require it to run. gajim is designed for novice and advanced users as one, as well for XMPP server admins.

XMPP is the Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol, a set of open technologies for instant messaging, presence, multi-party chat, voice and video calls, collaboration, lightweight middleware, content syndication, and generalized routing of XML data. For more information on the XMPP protocol see https://xmpp.org/about-xmpp/.
