Has DDG ever considered approaching the devs of libpurple to have DDG's XMPP info added as a preset?

Definitely possible but it would be entirely up to them.

Yes, but it would certainly help if you guys approached them. At the very least it can't hurt.

We are no new "network", of course we will never be added to this list, we are no own protocol, we are just a plain XMPP server.

That's the same with Facebook and Gtalk. Both use the XMPP protocol. They are there just to make it easier on the users who want to use those accounts in libpurple.

You are correct, but GTalk was SSL disabled and Facebook Chat is both SSL disabled and has a long URL chat.facebook.com - both are, allegedly, popular servers.

If both were secured and Facebook Chat domain was facebook.com, then these two would not be listed uniquely.

I strongly suggest to use a normal XMPP server https://xmpp.net/

GTalk, CrapBook and CrapSpace are not as good.

P.S. Pidgin is buggy. Use Gajim or Psi+.

While I did see the screen shot I believe poster would like to have DDG populated in the server domain suggestion field once xmpp texting is selected.

(different screen shot would be required)


Other [platform specific] clients of note:

Conversations, android
Xabber Dev, android
Yaxim, android

Psi+, cross platform
Pidgin, cross platform
Jitsi, as pictured in screen shot, cross platform

ChatSecure, ios or android

Each of which afaik has a domain suggestion option [for JID creation]


only mentioned are those clients capable of both OTR and appropriate secure connections to server.
