This software codebase began as a fork of prosody trunk (to be 0.9) merged with LW.Org's custom patches, initiating from August 7th 2012 (see first commit).

Being mainly based on Prosody a lot of Metronome's code is backport compatible, but as development progressed a good portion of it completely diverged from mainstream's to better suit LW.Org IM's needs.

Differences from Prosody are, but not limited to:

  • The Pubsub API and wrapped modules, mod_pubsub and mod_pep
  • The MUC API and wrapper plugins
  • Pluggable MUC configuration
  • Pluggable Routing API
  • Core stack: Modulemanager, Usermanager, Hostmanager, Module API, etc...
  • More aggressive memory usage optimisations
  • Bidirectional S2S Streams
  • Direct TLS S2S Streams and XEP-0368 resolution
  • Dialback errors handling and "DB without DB" (XEP-344)
  • The anonymous auth backend (mod_auth_anonymous & sasl.lua ineherent part)
  • Included plugins, utils
  • SPIM prevention system
  • Hits/blacklist/whitelist based host filtering (mod_gate_guard)
  • In-Band Registration verification and account locking mechanism
  • The HTTP API
  • XEP-0252 support for BOSH's JSON Padding
  • Extensive Microblogging over XMPP support
  • Daemon Control Utility
  • It does have only one server backend being libevent and has a hard dep. on lua-event
