So, with @psychobunny wanting to pass on his youtube plugin, I've decided to release mine for anyone to use.
You can install it by typing
npm install nodebb-plugin-youtube-lite
This plugin lazyloads youtube videos on an as needed basis. It connects to youtubes API and pulls the thumbnail, and only loads the video when you click to view it, this plugin would be great for "youtube topics" where people post multiple videos.
Currently the video doesn't load when you first post, I'm working on it now though.
iPad users will need to click play twice on videos, as iOS blanket ignores the autoplay command. (Autoplay is enabled so that once the video is loaded, it plays)
RE: Any reason why the dual composer view was chosen over WYSIWYG?
This may seem a bit farfetched, but I may have a solution, or at least the start of one. I noticed Hallo
Keep the composer as before, but rather than having a seperate preview zone, it would just appear as if it were an actual post, then would be seen by others once posted.
Made you a mockup. A further advance to this would be make the post editable from the actual post, without needing a composer. But I'm sure there's some limitations with all of this.
RE: Browsing of topics in mobile
@julian Do it, scrolling to the last post is a ballache and a half, it should do this on desktop too, if I've read 3/4 of a topic already and 20 new posts come in, I don't want last post or first post, I want where I last stopped reading from.
Finally got around to making a plugin. I'd ideally like to include an option in the user profile for mobile users to disable embedding, as it does slow page load times down quite a lot trying to load numerous iframes. Is this something that could be easily achieved?
npm install nodebb-plugin-hearthis
Paste the shortlink from HearThis into your post.
Not sure how useful a plugin like this is for most of you, but if you use Soundcloud, HearThis is better.
An independent review of ios8...
The more I use it, the more I hate it. The new keyboard. The keyboard seems to suffer from dyslexia, recommending words that don't even exist in any language I went to school to learn.
The GUI. double tapping the home button takes 3 seconds to load the list of open apps. Pressing it once seems ok. I've had to turn off animations because they lag more than arma 2. Now I've just got a fade in and out on apps. But the screen orientation animation struggles like getting a mattress up a staircase.
Safari, where do I start... The way the top bar minimises when you scroll down a page is infuriating. Hiding any open tabs. You have to scroll to the very top for it to appear again. Or tap it to bring it up. You can't close the only tab you have open without going into another menu next to the new tab button. And clicking an x about 4px by 4px.
Features I like. 3rd party keyboards. Yeah, that's about it. I'm going to give fleksy a try, hopefully it's better than this keyboard. Everything else is exactly the same as it is on ios7. Except the grievances above. Seems the usability guy was away on holiday while this was being designed. Bloody awful. Don't recommend. I'm sure I'll update this with more annoyances. Ipad 3 by the way. also apparently it's even worse on the 4s. Even though they state it works fine.
[nodebb-plugin-mixcloud] MixCloud Embedding
On a roll.
npm install nodebb-plugin-mixcloud
Paste the URL to the mixcloud track you wish to embed.
Mixcloud allow for various types of widget, I have gone with the dark, a light is available. But it didn't suit my purpose, feel free to fork my plugin and change the iFrame Code to match what you want.
A mini guide for accepting email to your domain without a mailserver.
So Mailinator have recently allowed people to use their own domain. You need an account on Mailinator, and you need to go into your Settings and supply the domain name you want to use, you then need to set an MX record in your DNS settings (cloudflare or hosting provider for @) at the nameserver they give you. Wait 24 hours or so. You can then log into Mailinator, and type in any account, if it has received an email, you can view it there.
This is especially useful if you're trying to set up StartSSL, which requires you verify your domain with an email. So you could get an email sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and you can view it from mailinator. You can't reply though. Note, this is only an inbox, however you can set it up to auto forward everything to another email address if you like.
Account is free etc. Enjoy.
RE: [Solved] Error on startup
@kevgathuku Try going into
/home/nodechat/nodebb/folder and run
./nodebb reset plugins
This will disable all active plugins, if this brings your site back, one of the plugins you've installed isn't compatible with 0.4.2 of NodeBB.
If that fails, try
git pullfollowed by
./nodebb upgradein the same folder as above to make sure you're up to date.
[nodebb-plugin-jsfiddle] jsFiddle Embedding
One for the community if you fancy using it.
npm install nodebb-plugin-jsfiddle
Paste the full URL into your post. It also supports revisions with
/6/ or /10/after the URL, include that too if you want.
Fork on github if you want to change the order of the tabs
Well this looks interesting. Short snippet from their how it works page. Shame it's a long way off though.
When Let’s Encrypt launches in Summer 2015, enabling HTTPS for your site will be as easy as installing a small piece of certificate management software on the server:
$ sudo apt-get install lets-encrypt $ lets-encrypt example.com
That’s all there is to it! https://example.com is immediately live.
The Let’s Encrypt management software will:
- Automatically prove to the Let’s Encrypt CA that you control the website
- Obtain a browser-trusted certificate and set it up on your web server
- Keep track of when your certificate is going to expire, and automatically renew it
- Help you revoke the certificate if that ever becomes necessary.
No validation emails, no complicated configuration editing, no expired certificates breaking your website. And of course, because Let’s Encrypt provides certificates for free, no need to arrange payment.
