How to Compile?


Any can give me idea how to compile the Escargot Server Files?

Thanks You!


Python is not a compiled language but an interpreted one. You just type “python dev” from the folder you extracted the files to in order to start Escargot.


That’s okay xD…

I download the escargot-msn and msn-server

all run okay… but…

when, i try to create account:
i can complete the form and … it go to…

and show this error:

    500 Internal Server Error

Server got itself in trouble

and in the escargot-msn console:

======== Running on ========
(Press CTRL+C to quit)

The above exception was the direct cause of the following exception:

I can’t help you but @valtron will when he will be back :wink:

It seems it’s missing a table in the database. I don’t really know how it’s suposed to be created. Have you tried “python” because the table definition is in this file?

There is also a test mode that can be called using “python tests” maybe this can create the table…


Yes, i try it but not work.

im working in a multi version client… in PHP AJAX and CSS and i need test it ^^.



But how will you maintain the connection to the MSNP server? We have no gateway yet (HTTP, websocket or XMPP) that would accept disconnection. You will have to create one on your server to sit as a middle man between your PHP client and the MSNP Escargot server. Most (if not all) old web clients used one of these gateways that were supported by Microsoft servers.

Indeed, the actual MSNP protocol over TCP is not really suitable for web clients because the socket needs to stay connected. Once the socket is closed, you will appear offline and will need to reconnect and restart everything.

You can develop a gateway for us in Python :slight_smile:

Or, you can create your own gateway by having a service on your server handling all MSNP connections to the Escargot server for your users. This service would then communicate itself or through a gateway with your PHP client. This gateway has to be able to send the commands received by your service to a format understood by your client. It should also be able to convert commands from your client to MSNP (if they are not in MSNP format) and forward them to your service for them to be sent to the correct socket.


Hi, thanks for the information in the PM.

I will be studying the subject, to be able to contribute within the possibilities, in everything that is necessary.

Best Regards!


Do you have to run under linux or windows?
I wanted to use an old pc with windows xp as a server but I can not start it because don’t recognize the python command.
Thank you
