Jabber-SH — SH console via XMPP/Jabber (GTalk)

Screenshot-Jabber-SH on GTalk

I’ve just posted the code of Jabber-SH on GitHub. Jabber-SH is a ruby hack that allows you to administrate a remote computer via a command line through a Jabber client. It’s like SSH via GoogleTalk! :)

I coded it nine month ago then I planned to add some specs, to store the configuration in a yaml file, to make a gem out of it but… I didn’t and I won’t get a chance to do that. So here are the 25 lines of code… hackish eh?!

      You don’t use the ‘session’ library. Any reason for that?
