BitlBee has support for identi.ca, an open source social networking and micro-blogging service based on the OpenMicroBlogging specification. It uses the same protocol as twitter, but defaults to a base_url pointing at identi.ca, and with OAuth disabled.
To use your identi.ca account in BitlBee:
From version 3.0.5 and higher, OAuth for identi.ca will also be supported so connecting to identi.ca will be just like connecting to Twitter.
To connect to a status.net instance without using OAuth:
1 <@nick> account add identica nick 2 <@root> Account successfully added with tag identica 3 <@root> No need to enter a password for this account since it's using OAuth 4 <@nick> account list 5 <@root> 0 (identica): identica, nick 6 <@root> End of account list 7 <@nick> account 0 set oauth false 8 <@root> oauth = `false' 9 <@nick> account 0 set password topsecret123 10 <@root> Setting changed successfully 11 <@nick> account 0 set base_url 'https://example.com/api/' 12 <@root> base_url = `https://example.com/api/' 13 <@nick> account 0 on
This assumes you've installed statusnet in single user mode at https://example.com.
