You can chat with us to experience the product. If you like it you should read the following section to do more integration work.

Full Integration Works You Should Do?
=====================================
* Deploy your own XMPP server
* Integrate your plone site with your XMPP server
    - users integration
    - friends mechanism
    - SSO
    - ...

* Configure anz.ijabbar
    - login in as site administrator
    - goes to ZMI and enter {your site url}/portal_properties/anz_ijabbar_properties
    - configure as your situation

Installation
============
To install anz.ijabbar into the global Python environment (or a workingenv), using a traditional Zope 2 instance, you can do this:

* When you're reading this you have probably already run
  ``easy_install anz.ijabbar``. Find out how to install setuptools
  (and EasyInstall) here:
  http://peak.telecommunity.com/DevCenter/EasyInstall

* Create a file called ``anz.ijabbar-configure.zcml`` in the
  ``/path/to/instance/etc/package-includes`` directory.  The file
  should only contain this::

    <include package="anz.ijabbar" />


Alternatively, if you are using zc.buildout and the plone.recipe.zope2instance
recipe to manage your project, you can do this:

* Add ``anz.ijabbar`` to the list of eggs to install, e.g.:

    [buildout]
    ...
    eggs =
        ...
        anz.ijabbar
      
* Tell the plone.recipe.zope2instance recipe to install a ZCML slug:

    [instance]
    recipe = plone.recipe.zope2instance
    ...
    zcml =
        anz.ijabbar
     
* Re-run buildout, e.g. with:

    $ ./bin/buildout
       
You can skip the ZCML slug if you are going to explicitly include the package from another package's configure.zcml file.

In Plone just add "anz.ijabbar" product with quick_installer, or install "anz.ijabbar" by portal_setup.

ToDo
====
* More documentations about integrate anz.ijabbar with your XMPP server.
* Implement a 'friends mechanism', to let you only add your friends to your IM network.
* SSO support.
