Commands
========

Commands start with the **/** character and can take a list of any number
of arguments, separated by spaces. If an argument should contain a space,
you can use the **"** character to surround this argument.

The commands described in this page are shown like this:

You can get the same help as below from inside poezio with the **/help** command.

.. note:: Use command parameters like this:

    - Do not use quotes if they are unnecessary (words without special chars or spaces)
    - If the command takes several agrguments, you need to put quotes around arguments containing special chars such as backslashes or quotes
    - If the command always takes only one argument, then do not use quotes even for words containing special chars

    /help
        **Usage:** ``/help [command]``

        If called without an argument, this command will list the
        available commands. If it has a valid command as an argument, this command
        will show the usage and the help for the given command.

    /join
        **Usage:** ``/join [room_name][@server][/nick] [password]``

        Join the specified room. You
        can specify a nickname after a slash (/). If no nickname is specified, you
        will use the default_nick in the configuration file. You can omit the room
        name: you will then join the room you're looking at (useful if you were
        kicked). You can also provide a room_name without specifying a server, the
        server of the room you're currently in will be used. You can also provide a
        password to join the room.

        *Examples:*

        - ``/join room@server.tld``
        - ``/join room@server.tld/John``
        - ``/join room2``
        - ``/join /me_again``
        - ``/join``
        - ``/join room@server.tld/my_nick password``
        - ``/join / password``

    /exit
    /quit
        Just disconnect from the server and exit poezio.

    /next
        Go to the next room.

    /prev
        Go to the previous room.

    /win
    /w
        **Usage:** ``/win <number>``

        Go to the specified room.

    /status
        **Usage:** ``/status <availability> [status message]``

        Set your availability and
        (optionaly) your status message. The <availability> argument is one of
        "available, chat, away, afk, dnd, busy, xa" and the optional [status] argument
        will be your status message.'

    /bookmark
        **Usage:** ``/bookmark [roomname][/nick] [autojoin] [password]``

        Bookmark the specified
        room. This command uses  almost the same syntax as /join. Type ``/help join`` for
        syntax examples. Note that when typing /bookmark on its own, the room will be
        bookmarked with the nickname you're currently using in this room (instead of
        default_nick). You can specify an optional *autojoin* and *password* if you
        call it with the full line (/bookmark alone will put the room in autojoin
        without password). The bookmarks stored with this command are stored on your
        xmpp server.

    /bookmark_local
        **Usage:** ``/bookmark_local [roomname][/nick]``

        Bookmark the  specified room (you will
        then auto-join it on each poezio start). This commands uses almost the same
        syntax as /join. Type /help join for syntax examples. Note that when typing
        /bookmark on its own, the room will be bookmarked with the nickname you're
        currently using in this room (instead of default_nick). The bookmarks stored
        with this command will be stored locally. They have priority over the ones
        stored online.

    /remove_bookmark
        **Usage:** ``/remove_bookmark [room_jid]``

        Remove the bookmark on *room_jid* or the one on the current tab, if any.

    /bookmarks
        Show the current bookmarks.

    /set
        **Usage:** ``/set [plugin|][section] <option> <value>``

        Set the value to the option in
        your configuration file. You can, for example, change your default nickname
        by doing "/set default_nick toto" or your resource with "/set resource
        blabla".  Doing so will write in the main config file, and in the main
        section ([Poezio]). But you can also write to another section, with ``/set
        bindings M-i ^i``, to a plugin configuration with ``/set mpd_client| host
        main`` (notice the **|**, it is mandatory to write in a plugin), or even to
        another section in a plugin configuration ``/set plugin|other_section option
        value``.  **toggle** can be used as a special value for a boolean option. It
        just set the option to true if it’s currently false, and to false if it’s
        currently true.

    /move_tab
        **Usage:** ``/move_tab <source> <destination>``

        Move tab <source> to <destination>. If
        the create_gaps option is true, then it will leave a gap at the <source>
        position, leading to usual behaviour. If create_gaps is not enabled, then the
        tabs will number from 0 to your actual tab number, without gaps (which means
        their number will change if you close a tab on the left of the list).

    /theme
        **Usage:** ``/theme [theme_name]``

        Reload the theme defined in the config file. If
        *theme_name* is given, this command will act like :samp:`/set theme {theme_name}` then
        /theme.

    /presence
        **Usage:** ``/presence <jid> [type] [status]``

        Send a directed presence to *jid* using
        *type* and *status* if provided.

    /rawxml
        **Usage:** ``/rawxml <stanza>``

        Send a custom XML stanza.

    /list
        **Usage:** ``/list [server.tld]``

        Get the list of public chatrooms in the specified server

    /message
        **Usage:** ``/message <jid> [optional message]``

        Open a conversation with the specified JID (event if it is not in our roster),
        and send a message to him/her, if specified.

    /version
        **Usage:** ``/version <jid>``

        Get the software version of the given JID (usually its XMPP
        client and Operating System).

    /invite
        **Usage:** ``/invite <jid> <room> [reason]``

        Invite *jid* to *room* with *reason* (if
        provided).

    /invitations
        Show the pending invitations.

    /activity
        **Usage:** ``/activity <jid>``

        Show the last activity of a contact or a server (its
        uptime, in that case).

    /server_cycle
        **Usage:** ``/server_cycle [server.tld] [message]``

        Disconnect and reconnect in all the
        rooms of server.tld.

    /bind
        **Usage:** ``/bind <key> <eq>``

        Bind a key to another key or to a "command". For example,
        ``/bind ^H KEY_UP`` makes Control + h behave the same way as the Up key. See the
        *key bindings documentation page* for more details.

    /runkey
        **Usage:** ``/runkey <key>``

        Execute the action defined for *key*. For example,
        ``/runkey KEY_PPAGE`` will scroll up, or ``/runkey ^N`` will go to the next tab.

    /self
        Reminds you of who you are and what your status is.


    /close
        Close the tab.

        .. note:: The /close command will work everywhere, except in the Roster tab,
                    which can’t be closed.
