Jami is free software for universal communication which respects freedoms and privacy of its users.
Its main goal is to provide a communication framework and end-user applications to make audio or video calls, send text messages and make generic data transfers. It makes this possible via multiple paradigms: a modern decentralized approach using a DHT to find peers or classical centralized SIP as a soft-phone. The domain of usage is not limited to physical users, it also includes integration with connected objects (IoT).
Available on all major platforms, this free software project is led by Savoir-faire Linux - a Canadian/Quebecois GNU/Linux consulting company - and is supported by the global community.
As a free software its sources are licensed under the GPLv3+.

How to build
How to build from source for GNU/Linux:
But this is the main parts:
- OpenDHT, a DHT library to provide the basis of our distributed network
Nameserver, (optional) is our registration system based upon an Ethereum Blockchain, but anyone can implement theirs using the following informations:
- Description of the REST API for name query
- The daemon in charge of the accounts management, SIP features, crypto, video, etc
- The clients for all platform to interact with the daemon.
