All things change, and so does our documentation. During our effort to create a user-friendly configuration file, we also went through all existing docs, and ended up changing templates, looks, colours, and whatnot, and had to move to github pages for extended functionality. This site will not be updated, and in the future it will be completely removed. Please refer to our latest documentation at

Get to know MongooseIM

MongooseIM is a robust and efficient chat (or instant messaging) platform aimed at large installations.

MongooseIM platform's logo

Designed for enterprise, it is fault-tolerant, can utilise the resources of multiple clustered machines, and easily scales for more capacity by simply adding a box or VM.

MongooseIM can accept client sessions over vanilla XMPP, REST API and SSE, as well as Websockets, and BOSH (HTTP long-polling).

As a platform, MongooseIM includes several server-side (backend) and client-side (frontend) components. We provide a test suite, metrics, a load testing platform, and a monitoring server. We recommend third-party, open source client libraries for XMPP and REST API.

MongooseIM is brought to you by Erlang Solutions.
