Customize Emoji does not work
When I click the bubble on the left bottom, Customize Emoji does not show up. I am not sure if its a bug. I am using nodebb 1.13.2
this is fixed in email@example.com
Thanks for the fix. However, after I successfully updated the plugin, the emoji disappear...
Any errors in the logs? You may need to upgrade Node.
I will test it early morning tomorrow and get back to you.
I update nodejs to 8.11.0 but it does not work. Which version of nodejs do we need? Here is the node version list: https://nodejs.org/en/download/releases/
fwiw; I use nodejs-12 on 1.12. Don't know about your emoji on 1.13.
Nodejs uses even numbers for production/stable releases and odd numbers for the bleeding edge. Some devs favor the latter. I favor the former and typically use the latest and greatest "stable" for all my nodejs stuff unless I have an explicit reason not to.
@sharonyue you need node 10 at least, I suggest that whenever you upgrade node, you upgrade to the latest lts (even number as he mentioned) version. In this case, that would be Node 12.
Upgrading to node v12.0.0 does the tricks.
Another problem is that
build emojidoes not work. I need to rebuild nodebb to make new-added emoji to appear.
These are my emojis:
Which plugin is this? I cannot find the name?
@sharonyue Dumb question, what is Aliases for?
You mean this one? I think its just alias. To some extend I think its not necessary to have both
aliasesat the same time. I have many emojis and I found it is very difficult to name them. At last I end it by naming them by numbers
At first , I name them...
Finally , I just number them...since I cannot think an adequate name for these emojis..
Suggestions: can we make
Aliases are for additional names. For instance, you can add an alias for , allowing it to be accessed by
There needs to be some way of specifying an emoji do of course names are required. Try making them descriptively so they'll work well with autocomplete.
@PitaJ Is this on you to do list?
Another problem is that build emoji does not work. I need to rebuild nodebb to make new-added emoji to appear.
@sharonyue oh yes I do intend to look into that
@PitaJ Thank you. It indeed helps, and it is indeed a useful plugin.
@sharonyue needing to rebuild NodeBB for changes to apply is due to caching. Without rebuilding, NodeBB's cache-buster remains the same so even though the changes are there, you won't see them without clearing your cache.
There's also the problem of Windows where plugin assets are copied, not linked, so I'd have to start overwriting NodeBB's built assets instead of the ones in my plugin to get this to work.
In conclusion, for the forseeable future, the modifying emoji customizations flow will continue to be:
- Edit Customize Emoji
- Build Emoji Assets
- NodeBB Rebuild and Restart
Thanks for the effort. @PitaJ Its okay.
