Get The Source

Use the Source, Luke''

Nabu development is in an early stage and hence no official releases yet exist.

The subversion repository is available at

When using Eclipse, you can use the Eclipse Subversion plugin Subclipse.

Alternatively you can use the svn command line tool and check out the repository via

svn co 

Build it

To build Nabu, you need the Java Development Kit 1.5. Install Apache Ant unless you have fun compiling files manually.

After checkout, go to the new nabu/ directory and build Nabu via

$ ant 

If ant was successful, the build can be found in the target/ subdirectory

Run it

To actually run Nabu, the CVS version of Jive Messenger is needed. Here you can download a CVS build (9.2 MB).


  • Unzip the jive_messenger zip file
  • copy the nabu/target/plugins/nabu subdirectory to jive_messenger-bin/plugins
  • Start and configure Jive Messenger (see Jive Messenger documentation for details)
  • To access the Nabu archive, you have to add nabubot@… to your roster. After mutual authorization the bot should appear online. Type "help" to get a list of available commands. The interface doesn't support privaxy yet and commands are preliminary. More documentation will follow.
