Coccinella\'s whiteboard

Communicate with Coccinella

Coccinella is a free and open-source cross-platform communication tool with a built-in whiteboard for improved collaboration with other people.


Styled Chats

Using a HTML/CSS rendering machine for user interfaces seem popular these days as it gives extended ways for customization using style sheets. And many people are used to hack CSS files from the web which extends the group of possible contributors.

Subscription Process

The subscription process is notoriously problematic in XMPP. While doing extended support for multiple simultaneous subscriptions, I just noted that if I deny a subscription by sending "unsubscribed", that used to be all that was needed.

MeBeam on your Daily Build Breakfast

As breakfast is the most important meal of the day while many people skip it, we thought it would be a good idea to extend your breakfast with your favorite bug: delicious, rich in proteins, and named Coccinella. Every day we will prepare a daily build of the development version of Coccinella for you. So, start the day healthy by eating a bug! The more bugs you eat, the more stable Coccinella will be! ;-)

Multiple Accounts Support

Regularly, people like you ask us why Coccinella does not support multiple accounts. Or they ask if support could be added. We always have to disappoint them. Coccinella does not support multiple accounts and it is very unlikely Coccinella will ever support multiple accounts.

In order of importance, these are the reasons why:

Spell Checking

Spell checkers have found their way from word processors, email clients, and now, to chat clients. Maybe this is a sign of chatting reaching the mainstream audience, I don't know. In any case there is now a first implementation of spell-as-you-type function in Coccinella using the ispell or aspell command line tools.
