Add Pidgin Status To Lifestream

less than 1 minute read


I made a post entitled A couple of plugins for a feed for Pidgin (AIM, MSN, XMPP, Yahoo, etc) over at the Lifestream Forums regarding some enhancements to My Lifestream and the Wordpress Lifestream Plugin…

I’ve created a rough perl pidgin plugin, rss feeding status upload page in php and Pidgin feed option in Lifestream which allows one to display their Pidgin status (theoretically any protocol the application supports) and other Pidgin hooks on Lifestream. You can see an example of this on my Lifestream ( I chose to to display just one icon for all of pidgin, but it is possible to display a different feed for each of your network protocols and accounts.

It’s only 2-3 days old at this point so I’ve got some more work to do on this, but would like to know if anyone is interested in the code and/or has any suggestions for ideas? As far as the pidgin plugin goes this has many potential uses beyond lifestream itself, but for now this enough to satisfy me.
