## About
Kaidan is a simple, user-friendly Jabber/XMPP client providing a modern user-interface
using [Kirigami](https://techbase.kde.org/Kirigami) and [QtQuick](http://wiki.qt.io/Qt_Quick).
The back-end of Kaidan is completely written in C++ using the [gloox](https://camaya.net/gloox/)
XMPP client library and [Qt 5](https://www.qt.io/).

Currently Kaidan only has been tested on GNU/Linux Desktops, but because of the use of Qt we shouldn't have
any problems porting it to all other common platforms, even Android. Nevertheless we will work on another
GUI using Silica for better look & feel on Sailfish OS soon™ (See [KaidanSF](https://github.com/KaidanIM/KaidanSF)).
But if you want to get a client for Sailfish OS _now_, maybe take a look at
[Shmoose](https://github.com/geobra/harbour-shmoose), a fork by an earlier developer of Kaidan.
Currently Kaidan only has been tested on GNU/Linux Desktops, Android & Plasma Mobile, but of course
Ubuntu Touch, OS X, iOS and Windows will follow. Of course this is still not everything, i.e. Sailfish OS
is missing. To support that we need to wait for a proper QtQuickControls 2 style for it or rewrite the GUI
using Silica. Both options are rather unlikely in the near future, so if you want to get a client for
Sailfish OS _now_, maybe take a look at [Shmoose](https://github.com/geobra/harbour-shmoose), a fork by an
earlier developer of Kaidan.
Kaidan is *not* finished yet, so don't expect it working as well as a finished client will do.
