== Ignite Realtime's Smack ==
''Website:'' https://igniterealtime.org/projects/smack/index.jsp<br/>
''Source Code:'' https://github.com/igniterealtime/Smack/<br/>
''Description:'': Ignite Realtime creates free and open source software with and around the XMPP ecosystem. Smack is a client library for Java/Android applications.<br/>

''List of Teaser Tasks:'' [Smack Teaser Tasks https://issues.igniterealtime.org/browse/SMACK-853?filter=11513]<br/>
''Contact chat:'' open_chat@conference.igniterealtime.org <br/>
''Contact forum:'' https://discourse.igniterealtime.org/c/smack <br/>
=== Idea A ===
''Brief explanation:'' Add support for XMPP over WebSocket (RFC 7395) to the XMPP Client Library Smack.<br/>
''Involved Technologies:'' Android compatible Java 8, WebSockets<br/>
''Mentor(s):'' Paul Schaub (vanitasvitae) [mailto:vanitasvitae@fsfe.org <vanitasvitae@fsfe.org>]<br/>
''Deliverables / Expected Results:''<br/>
* Being able to connect to XMPP services via WebSocket.
* Definition of a WebSocket interface on top of the used WebSocket libraries, allowing for different WebSocket implementations.
Currently Smack can establish connections via TCP/IP and HTTP via BOSH. WebSockets are yet another way to connect to a server.

A is a promising new XMPP protocol extension. Its specification includes a ton of buzzwords ranging from blockchain to machine learning. But since it is very young protocol, there are no existing implementations. The goal of this project is to change that situation.
