My name is Jon Kristensen and I am planning to create a XMPP-based media
server called Pontarius. The typical use case of Pontarius would be to
host all your media on a local server and have that server share it with
your friends (with customizable permissions, of course). The server will
make sure that any transmission is end-to-end encrypted. We will be
making heavy use of the XMPP protocol.
Now, I would like to make some kind of "binding" so that GNOME and other
free desktop environments can browse the contents of a Pontarius server
(so that you can see your and your friends media). Do you have any
advice on where I should start? We will be using Jingle and the
Publish-Subscribe XMPP extensions to do this. What is the lowest level
layer that I can/should work against here?
Basically, I want to be able to work with the remote files as if they
were a local directory... Get file listings, download a file, upload a
file, rename a file, etc.
Thank you so much for any advice on this!
