== Project description ==

PyPjUA is Python software library for [ PJSIP] C SIP stack that together with an elegant middleware allows for easy development of real-time communications end-points based on [ SIP protocol] with rich presence and IM capability that run on desktop computers running Mac OS X, Linux and Windows operating systems, portable devices like Nokia Internet tablet, Apple iPhone or Android mobile phone.

== Deliverables ==

The goal of this project is to deliver the best Open Source development kit for rich featured SIP User Agents while hiding the complex underlying functionality behind an easy to use high-level application programming interface. Compared to other available SIP libraries, this project adds both to the client and to the corresponding open-source servers multiple media streams support, 'the missing' SIP-SIMPLE features for rich presence (presence rules, resource lists, rls services, rich PIDF, XCAP full and partial document manipulation) and session based interactive messaging based on MSRP protocol including relay support.

The software library is tested against the most popular SIP server software available today: [ OpenSIPS], [ OpenXCAP], [ MSRPRelay] and [ MediaProxy].

To test the features of the software you can register a SIP account on [] that provides all server side features available in the client.

== Download ==

The software library and command line tools will be available for download on 2008 Q4 from:


== End-user experiences ==

Using this software you are able to create elegant real-time communications applications without having to read or understand [ the +1200 RFC documents] behind it.

''If you read them all some antidepressant and desintoxication is recommended after this effort.''

As a library with a high-level API, the toolkit can also be used to add SIP and Presence functionality to network devices without a display (like TV set-up boxes), as long as Python environment is supported by such platform. You may collapse the whole telecom industry into a simple ''Call me'' button or expand the presence buddy list to display the mood or blood pressure of your buddies (if they want to share this information with you). Some of the things possible with this library are listed here:

* VoIP calls using Internet codecs (wide-band Speex, iLBC) and G.711 for compatibility with PSTN
* Multiple RTP streams per session (for live broadcasting applications)
* Session based IM with voice/video for rich end-to-end communications
* Zero configuration server-less communication over LAN (Bonjour)
* Presence using SIP SIMPLE (PUBLISH, SUBSCRIBE, NOTIFY and XCAP policy)
* Interactive Messaging (IM) and File transfer using MSRP protocol
* Multiparty chat using MSRP chat server
* Support for NAT traversal using ICE and MediaProxy for RTP media and MSRP relay for IM and file transfer
* Sharing desktop screen using VNC protocol
* Video calls

== Software repository ==

Besides the Python software library itself, the repository contains the ready to use sip-simple-test-tools package that can be used to:

* Setup SIP [ MSRP sessions] between end-points with public IP or behind NAT by using [ MSRP relay]
* Setup up VoIP sessions between end-points with public IP adresses or behind NAT by using ICE or MediaProxy
* [ PUBLISH] and [ SUBSCRIBE/NOTIFY to SIP events] like [ presence], [ xcap-diff], [ watcher-info], [ conference], [ message-summary]
* Manage presence policy in the form of [ XCAP] documents like [ pres-rules], [ resource-lists, rls-services] and [ pidf-manipulation]
* Lookup of SIP buddies using [ Bonjour] (LAN broadcast), [ RFC 3263] (Locating SIP Services) and P2P overlays
* Setup up [ ad-hoc multi-party chat sessions] with an MSRP chat server (under construction)
* Alarms systems for SIP calls (VoIP sessions with RTP)

Using these scripts is easy to prototype [wiki:RichPresence Rich Presence], IM and VoIP services based on the SIP protocol.
To use these tools you can use your own infrastructure or register a free SIP SIMPLE account on []

== License ==

The software is provided under the [source:LICENSE GPL LICENSE]

== Integration with third-party projects ==

PyPjUA will be first integrated into [ Tribler]. Tribler is an application that enables its users to find, enjoy and share content. With content we mean video, audio, pictures, and much more. PyPjUA will provides real-time communications features that will allow users that have downloaded Tribler to:

* Interact in real time with each other using rich Presence, Interactive messaging and audio
* Communicate with other people that have access to SIP services from various SIP operators across the world

Developer program ==

To become an active developer to this program please send your request by email to []

We are looking for developers that can contribute with the following features: VNC desktop sharing, implementation for video sessions and real time text sessions (real time text using RTP [ ToIP (RFC 4103)] and MSRP).

== Support ==

The software is developed and supported by [ AG Projects].
