Command Line Startup Options

Spark 1.x supports the following command line options (should also work with Spark 2.5.6):

Option

Description

Sample value

username

Matt

password

Kitty2007

server

example.com

start_chat_jid

open a p2p chat window

Gato@example.com

start_chat_muc

open and enter a MUC

developers@example.com

So one can start Spark on Wndows with “Spark.exe username=Matt&password=Kitty2007&server=example.com&start_chat_jid=Gato@example.com&start_chat_muc=developers@example.com

It should be possible to start more than one p2p chat and enter more than one room but one should investigate first how this works before adding it here.

“%USERPROFILE%\Spark\spark.properties” (on Windows) stores a lot of settings one may want to modify after installation for a more or less automated setup without user interaction. One can also store there “username=” and “server=” instead of using the startup options.

Remark for those with edit rights, visible for everyone: If you find an error here or want to add some more options feel free to do this instead of writing a comment below the document about things which could be done better.
