Campfirer: A Jabber / Campfire Gateway

Campfirer gives campfire users a way to connect to rooms using any Jabber (XMPP) client. It does this by implementing (a portion) of the multi-user chat extension. Note that you must first have an account at and have created a room there before you can use campfirer to connect.

There are two ways you can use the campfirer gateway:

  1. You can use the gateway running at to connect to any campfire room. See the instructions below.
  2. You can run a Jabber server at your own domain and run campfirer as an XMPP component. See the component page for directions.

The first option is the easiest to try things out - but there is no guarantee of service quality or uptime.

Connecting to

There are three pieces of information you’ll need first:

  1. Your account name. This is the name portion of your login url of
  2. The name of the room you want to connect to
  3. Your username / password that you use at to log in

To connect, start your Jabber client and choose the option to join a new group chat.

If your client merely asks for the room (without a separate box for the server name), use “”. That’s it.
