Hi
Tox is an open-source and secure instant messenger.
Can someone port it to N900?

BTW is there any port to another mobile OS?

You can find Tox for Android, I tried it in the Nexus 5 and the Jolla but some nasty bugs still exist, not very usable at this stage.

You fill find it here : https://github.com/Astonex/Antox

Tox is certainly the more secure messaging application (P2P/hash table), I'm eagerly waiting for a Sailfish port.

Information:

Tox is on my mer repository for SailfishOS (Jolla).

https://build.merproject.org/package...e:nielnielsenl

You can add this repository with

Code:
# zypper ar -G http://repo.merproject.org/obs/home:...latest_armv7hl sailfish_latest_armv7hl
You need toxcore-master, toxcore-master-ntox and libsodium

No native GUI, but nTox -commandline version, see https://wiki.tox.im/NTox is avaliable.

Edit: I now only need a few friends :P
Edit: Added myself as a friend (YEAH) see pic (GUI is from my Debian Box, shell window is Jolla CLI)

It doesn't surprise me if it's really P2P and uses a DHT.

As usual I have to wonder what they found out to be so wrong with Jabber to warrant yet another incompatible network.

Hmm better to evaluate once q Qt/QML frontend is done, since nTox is commandline only.
But, I enclose htop of the process running
