YATCO

Post by demonnic » Thu Dec 27, 2012 3:29 pm

YATCO has been updated to 2.5
Please report issues on GitHub
You should head over to YATCO's github page HERE for more information on YATCO.

Quick Start, for version 2.5

Install base config package.
Code: [show] | [select all] lua
lua local a="https://raw.githubusercontent.com/demonnic/YATCO/master/YATCOConfig.xml"function d(b,c)if not c:find("YATCOConfig",1,true)then return end installPackage(c)os.remove(c)cecho("<lime_green>Package installed!\n")end registerAnonymousEventHandler("sysDownloadDone","d")downloadFile(getMudletHomeDir()..(a:ends("xml")and"/YATCOConfig.xml"or"/YATCOConfig.zip"),a)
once you've installed this, go over the configuration options and set the name of the tabs, etc. Then once you're ready to start up YATCO itself, install the code package. This is for 2.5.
Code: [show] | [select all] lua
lua local a="https://raw.githubusercontent.com/demonnic/YATCO/master/YATCO2.5.xml"function d(b,c)if not c:find("YATCO",1,true)then return end installPackage(c)os.remove(c)cecho("<lime_green>Package installed!\n")end registerAnonymousEventHandler("sysDownloadDone","d")downloadFile(getMudletHomeDir()..(a:ends("xml")and"/YATCO.xml"or"/YATCO.zip"),a)
This will startup the actual tabbed chat using the configs you edited. From this point forward you should be able to just uninstall YATCO and install the new version to pick up any code fixes, etc. I will add additional packages for bringing yourself up to date with configuration options which are added post 2.5.


2.5 adds Map display options. demonnic.chat.config.Maptab defaults to "", if you set it to the same name as one of the tabs in your tablist, it will create a Geyser mapper object in that tab. Leave it as "" in order ignore this functionality.
I also added demonnic.chat.useContainer , which you set to the Geyser container you want YATCO to be contained in. So if you have a container you created with
Code: [show] | [select all] lua
uiRight = Geyser.Container:new()
Then you would do
Code: [show] | [select all] lua
demonnic.chat.useContainer = uiRight
Leave it set to false if you don't want to add YATCO to some other container. This way YATCO will be easier to incorporate into other UI projects. It should be noted that if you stuff YATCO into another container, it will be at x=0, y=0 and both height and width will be 100% of this container. Then to hide or show all of YATCO you can hide or show the container. In the example, uiRight:hide() and uiRight:show(). This also means that the height and width of the chat boxes will be determined by the container you place them in, and not YATCO. This could mean you'll need to adjust your demonnic.chat.config.width until the text wraps properly. I intend to make this autodetect and work itself out in the future, but haven't gotten it in place yet.


OLDER INFO KEPT BELOW
UPDATE: Bumped to 2.4. New download link HERE
Also, you should be able to install using the following in your mudlet inputbar:
Code: [show] | [select all] lua
lua local a="https://raw.githubusercontent.com/demonnic/YATCO/master/YATCO-2.4.xml"function d(b,c)if not c:find("YATCO",1,true)then return end installPackage(c)os.remove(c)cecho("<lime_green>Package installed!\n")end registerAnonymousEventHandler("sysDownloadDone","d")downloadFile(getMudletHomeDir()..(a:ends("xml")and"/YATCO.xml"or"/YATCO.zip"),a)
Please report issues on GitHub

I am starting a new thread, since this version is significantly different from the one I posted to this forum last and the redirection at the top of the last post points to an outside forum. If you're using one of the versions of tabbed chat I wrote which makes use of geyser (all the 2.x ones) then using this should be about the same. If you're on 2.2, the only real changes are I added an alias to fix the blackbox issue on the chats, and I stripped out some leftover kruft from Lusternia, did not need any GMCP handlers in a mud agnostic tabbed chat widget. Scroll to the bottom for the configuration options, but since it's really just a copy/paste job from the configuration options in the script package itself, you almost may as well just go edit it. =)

You can download the xml HERE

I provided an example trigger to send something to the "Org" tab. Simply call demonnic.chat:append("Tabname") to send the line you've triggered upon to the Tabname tab. This is case sensitive, "tabname" is not the same as "Tabname"

There are currently 2 aliases provided with this.

dblink:
turns the blinking on or off. Temporary toggle, to make permanent change the configuration option in the script editor.

fixchat:
In 2.0test5 through 7 there is a slight issue with miniconsoles. If you are using one of the predefined locations for the chat tabs (topright, topleft, bottomright, bottomleft) then running this alias sets the tabbed chat to the opposite corner, redraws the it, then sets it back to where it was before and redraws it again. In my experience this removes the blackbox over the top of the chat console every time. There is a fix for this in git but not yet released. Once it is released this alias will no longer be necessary.

There is an included trigger with the package, but it seems I accidentally left it blank. I will fix that for the next release.

you want demonnic.chat:append("Tabname")

It will go to the 'All' tab (or any other name you decide to give it in the bucket option) automatically so long as the option is set for it to do so.

Ok, I setup the following trigger:

[-Jugger( "begin of line substring"
[-Jugger-] "begin of line substring"

With the following in the code box:

selectString(line,1)
copy()
demonnic.chat:append("All")
demonnic.chat:append("Guild")
deselect()

It is showing the text in the All tab, but not in the Guild tab. Also, it shows my chats twice in all, one with a timestamp.

suggestions?

I believe you only need to demonnic.chat:append("Guild"). Sending to the All tab shouldn't be necessary.

There should be a configuration option within the script to turn timestamps off.

Also, anyone have problems with multi-line chats? IE: Some spammy person sends you a huge tell. Need to make sure stuff doesnt get cut off.

Depends on how your MUD handles such things. If they have the option to turn server-side word wrapping off, so that everything comes in as one line and mudlet handles the word wrapping, then you don't need to do anything special.

Otherwise, you have to find some way to trigger to capture the rest of the tell.
