Unfortunately I don't think @rbeer has been around awhile. This might need to be forked to our community repository to keep it alive, sadly 😞
[nodebb-plugin-color] Colors in posts
@toolito Thanks for this plugin! It's great!
@toolito Any way you could integrate this into the composer?
@Tanner I saw psychobunny give instructions on how to add a composer button. I may give it a go tomorrow.
For my own reference (on mobile)
I'll also peek around and see if it's possible to have multiple colors on one line. Be advised though, I am extremely new to Node, so no promises.
I've hashed out some code snippets I want to test working off of some of the author's code, and some of psychobunny's. If anyone would be willing to team up for some testing on GitHub, it would be awesome. Trying to add in a composer button seems to have broken my test plugin.

@toolito Hello, I've updated this plugin to include the missing feature :
A button in composer
the colorpicker to choose a color
and the code is parsed
Updated regexp for perf and because I didn't update here you can also use multiple colored words in your texts now.

@toolito Plugin updated for NodeBB 0.6.0 compatibilty
Now the plugin don't parse what's between code blocks.
Seems like there's been no update from this author for almost a year and the plugin doesn't work with 0.6.0. Can we get responsibility for this transferred to @esiao or something?
Seems like @toolito is indeed active though, that issue above was merged by him a few days ago
EDIT: Maybe he just forgot to publish to npm? Might be best to just bug him on his issue tracker

Yes @toolito is active on Github. But update to this one
I've asked for npm ownership but I don't know if he did it or want to do it. And there's no way on npmjs to see if I'm owner.
Is this code still compatible with v6.0.1? Because I've been trying to get the plugin to work, to no avail.
Not working for me too.
The plugin in npm is outdated.
So, if you install it via
$ npm install nodebb-plugin-color
you get version at 27 July 2014 that doesn't work.
If you clone the repo
$ cd /path/to/NodeBB/node_modules $ git clone https://github.com/Toolito/nodebb-plugin-colors
the plugin won't work until you rename folder
But there is a way!
$ cd /path/to/NodeBB/node_modules $ npm i git+https://github.com/Toolito/nodebb-plugin-colors
After that the plugin finally works. (p.s. I didn't tested all claimed functionality, I just became convinced that
Hello @Mega . Just curious, why does :
$ cd /path/to/NodeBB/node_modules
$ npm i git+https://github.com/Toolito/nodebb-plugin-colors
Work when nodebb-plugin-colors < with an "s" is at the end? I thought it supposedly worked without the "s"? Not doubting, just curious as to why it works that way for future reference.
Thank you for your help so far. I'm booting up Nodebb to test it out.

It's because of npm internal magic. It happens cuz package actually has proper name field in his
I wish it took hex code like #ff0000, but I think color names just may do.
@JonDoe12 Yup, it works with hex codes
Don't work on 0.6.1
