info: retrieve various information

info groups subcommands used to retrieve read-only informations.


Display discovery information (see XEP-0030 for details). This can be used to check which features you server or a service is offering, and which items are available (items can be services like chat room, gateways, etc).

You only have to specify the jid of the entity to check, and optionally a node.

By default both infos and items are requested, but you can restrict what to request by using -t {infos,items,both}, --type {infos,items,both}


Request infos and items from a server:

$ li info disco


Request software version of an entity. You only need to specify the jid of the entity as positional argument.

Depending of the software and its configuration, you have software version, software name, and the operating system on which the software is running.


Check version of a server:

$ li info version


Give information about the session of the given profile. You’ll get the full jid currently used on the server, and the time when the session was started (which may not be the same time as when the connection with the XMPP server was started).


Get session informations:

$ li info session


List known devices for an entity. You’ll get resource name, and data such as presence data, and identities (i.e. name and type of the client used).

If entity’s bare jid is not specified, a list of your own devices is returned.


List known devices of Louise:

$ li info devices

Check if we have other devices connected:
