Some dude's started doing whatsapp plugin for pidgin... i figure if some folks here knew about it, they might conveniently port it over to pidgin for n900...

Wanted to post this into the correct thread but it's closed

Its development stopped in 2016:

"As of April 15th 2016 I won't be working on this plugin anymore. If someone wants to pick up development feel free to email me. There are some other up-to-date APIs that you may want to check (yowsup, ChatAPI, etc)."*

It has some forks. last commit of tukss' fork says:

"This version and User-Agent makes the plugin work. This switches from Android to S40. The exact version numbers were taken from recommendations in yowsup."*

And jasuarez's fork has a RPM package file (SPEC).

With the help of these, I built and installed the plugin on Fedora. But I couldn't check whether it worked because I couldn't find a way to get my WhatsApp password. Also I tried to compile it for Mer but there is a missing dep: FreeImage-devel.*

pidgin, plugin, whatsapp
