This software codebase initiated as a fork of prosody trunk (to be 0.9) merged with LW.Org's custom, patches initiating from August 7th 2012 (see first commit).

Being mainly based on Prosody a lot of Metronome's code is backport compatible, but as development progressed a good portion of it completely diverged from mainstream's to better suit LW.Org IM's needs.

The main differences from Prosody are:

  • The Pubsub API and wrapped modules, mod_pubsub and mod_pep;
  • The MUC API and wrapper plugins;
  • Pluggable MUC configuration;
  • Pluggable Routing API;
  • Core stack: Modulemanager, Usermanager, Hostmanager, Module API, etc... ;
  • More aggressive memory usage optimisations
  • Bidirectional S2S Streams
  • Advanced Dialback errors handling
  • More tight integration with Stream Management
  • The anonymous auth backend (mod_auth_anonymous & sasl.lua ineherent part);
  • Included plugins, utils;
  • The HTTP API;
  • BOSH's JSON Padding and XEP-252 support.
  • Extensive Microblogging over XMPP support.
  • Daemon Control Utility;
  • It does have only one server backend being libevent and has a hard dep. on lua-event.
