How to StatusNet

BitlBee has support for StatusNet, an open source social networking and micro-blogging Software based on the OpenMicroBlogging specification. It uses the same protocol as twitter, but defaults to a base_url pointing at an Identi.ca, and with OAuth disabled.

Note: since new Identi.ca doesn't support StatusNet API, you should change the API base_url to your active StatusNet instance. if you don't know what is your base_url address, follow StatusNet API Discovery.

To use your StatusNet account in BitlBee do as follow.

<nick> account add identica <handle> [<password>]
<root> Account successfully added
<nick> account list
<root>  0 (identica): identica, <handle>
<root> End of account list
<nick> account 0 set oauth false
<root> oauth = `false'
<nick> account 0 set base_url 'https://example.com/api/'
<root> base_url = `https://example.com/api/'
<nick> account 0 set password <MyTopSecretPassword>
<root> Setting changed successfully
<nick> account 0 on
<root> Trying to get all accounts connected...
<root> identica - Logging in: Connecting
