• Added blink support to funclib.js (used by colorPicker())

    From alterego@VERT/ALTERANT to Digital Man on Sunday, July 26, 2020 18:17:45
    Hey DM,

    I patched funclib.js to support blink, by pressing "B" when the colorPicker is rendered.

    Here it is base64:

    NjA3YTYwOAo+IAl2YXIgYmxrbWFzayA9ICgxPDw3KTsKNjEzYTYxNQo+IAl2YXIgYmxpbmsgPS

    Until just the past couple days, I had never seen anyone post base64-encoded content on Dove-Net before.. Usually people would put a file up for download somewhere and post a link. I'm wondering if that might be easier than saving the message, then trimming it down to the base64 content and then decoding it.. Unless there's an easy way to save base64-encoded files from these messages that I don't know about.

    Well, if it works out too hard, I'll happily make a patch available. (If DM used git, I'd provide a pull request, which I think would be even easier.)

    But capture the content should be as easy as:

    echo '<base64>' | base64 -d > my.patch

    eg:
    echo 'SGVsbG8gdGhlcmUhCg==' | base64 -d

    (Hopefully the pipe symbol wasnt eaten by this message).

    Since syncterm makes it quite easy to cut/paste, I thought that would be the easiest way.

    But if the message is long, you'd have to cut & paste multiple times, and then use a tool to base64-decode it. IMO it would be much easier to copy & paste a web/FTP link and just download the file that way.

    Right, that I agree - and I did consider that when pasting it into a message, making sure that it was all available on screen at the same time (without paging).

    I also considered puting bzip2 in the middle, to make the post even shorter (which it did) - but since it already fitted on the page at the same time, I didnt use it.

    If this method doesnt work for DM - I'll provide a file somehow...

    Unfortunately, the new-lines of the message body are pasted as CRs on the command-line, so not so easy.
