libpurple abstracts the way clients receive an image via the different protocols by storing it and giving us a PurpleStoredImage struct:

If we want to be able to show these images to the users, I can see two ways of doing so:

  • Just display the filename. Only works for people who run their bitlbee instance on their local computer though :(
  • Implement an http server in bitlbee to serve the images and display the link (...)
  • Leave the http server responsibility to the user, and display an URL formatted like the user configured it.
