I bought an Nokia N9 and I plan to use Sailfish OS and access WhatsApp from it.

It's a shame the pidgin solution was put down though.

Got it, no pidgin support anymore. Actually I got the password through yowsup, but when using it with pidgin through purple-whatsapp, the connection is rejected, :-( So no luck...

> Didn't know it integrated nicely with pidgin

@jevv: I'm not sure it does...

Oh, thanks. Didn't know it integrated nicely with pidgin, but now I know... Thx!

@jevv: Project is dead. Use yowsup.

Is it usable? If so, how can one get the key/pin asked for login (other than sniffing)?

Why would that be a reason to remove the package from the AUR? Is it against ArchLinux policy? It's still useful to let users who want to compile it.

The developer left the project.
“Important! As of April 15th 2016 I won't be working on this plugin anymore. If someone wants to pick up development feel free to email me. There are some other up-to-date APIs that you may want to check (yowsup, ChatAPI, etc).”

@vinipsmaker: Please, remove the package from the AUR repository.
