OTRXMPPLogger 1.0.3

Logging with OTR (Off-the-Record Messaging) and XMPP

This is a Python library for logging to XMPP destinations using OTR (Off-the-Record Messaging) encryption.


  • OTRv2
  • Pure python (no libotr dependency)
  • Log to multiple destinations
  • Optionally check log destinations’ OTR fingerprints


$ sudo pip install --pre xmpppy  # xmpppy is tagged as an "rc" version
$ sudo pip install otrxmpplogger


from otrxmpplogger import OTRXMPPLogger
import logging
import time
log = logging.getLogger()
privkey = open('.otrprivkey', 'r').read()
handler = OTRXMPPLogger(

log.debug('setting up OTR')  # Trigger OTR setup
time.sleep(3)  # Give OTR a little while to go active
log.critical('@6 is a rat!')


  • XMPP invitations are not handled
  • It seems to take roughly 3 seconds to set up an OTR session. Messages logged before the session is ready may be lost.
