  • purple-teams

    A MS Teams plugin for libpurple/Pidgin

  • slack-libpurple

    Slack module for libpurple

    Eion Robb has done an incredible amount of work in this space. His GitHub page[1] has tons of plugins, and I particularly appreciate the work he has done on the Matrix plugin to make it available to Windows users.

    Lest you think this is less than cool because you don't use Pidgin, bitlbee[2] is a great tool to get slack (and others!) into your IRC client. I haven't run it myself, but I know that it heavily relies on purple[3] for its magic. I can tell it gets a lot of use, perusing the issues on the slack purple plugin[4] for example.

  • CodiumAI

    TestGPT | Generating meaningful tests for busy devs. Get non-trivial tests (and trivial, too!) suggested right inside your IDE, so you can code smart, create more value, and stay confident when you push.

  • groupme-purple

    Fork of https://notabug.org/alyssa/groupme-purple, hopefully with updates.

    It took a while, but it's gotten pretty good again. Harder to get plugins running than it used to be, but now there's Slack, Matrix, Teams, and (shameless plug) GroupMe[1]. Works well enough for me these days :)

  • icyque

    ICQ WIM protocol for libpurple

    I still use Pidgin regularly to this very day. Of course I only really use it for XMPP, but I did actually configure it to connect to my old ICQ account a while back. Unfortunately is seems to have quit working sometime or other. Think I'm being bit by this:


    No big loss, I think there was like 1 other person in my ICQ contacts list that was still showing as online every now and then. Still, it's a neat nostalgia indulgence to connect to ICQ after all these years...

  • matrix-spec-proposals

    Proposals for changes to the matrix specification

    There is a spec change proposal for fixing this: https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-spec-proposals/pull/253...
