Feedback on IrcLogPlugin

this is just a prototype/proof of concept. it needs to support perhaps some prepackaged css stylesheets for the rendered log. maybe some sort of filtering? plus, it would be nice for the rendering to show timestamps, which it currently ignores. stuff like that...

other suggestions for improvements:

  • (optionally and/or by default) mask ip addresses
  • merge multiple lines into a single block

Hey Will, congratulations! This is the 100th Plugin posted at TWiki.org smile

-- PeterThoeny - 09 Nov 2003

Does this pull in the content or simply refer to it on another page? Is it then possible to refactor the page?

-- MartinCleaver - 09 Nov 2003

thanks, peter. congratulations to you and TWiki!

martin, it doesn't pull the content, it formats the text from another wiki page or url or formats text which you provide as the parameter to %IRCLOG%. while i'd really like to have the functionality you describe, i'm not really sure how to do it (i suppose the plugin can read the data that the =%IRCLOG% command specifies, and then re-save the page with the data in-place). sounds like more thinking about the implementation would be needed smile

-- WillNorris - 11 Nov 2003

martin, i think i have a solution for your IrcLogPlugin request: instead of the plugin pulling the data, have the logger push the data at the wiki have the server which runs the logger create the wiki page it could be set on a cronjob, even as often as every minute, or to have the default irc log date page include the current day's irc log's url, and do a publish from the server at the end of the day, replacing the page which includes, to a page with the text embedded seems like another positive consequence of this approach is the people can't refactor the day's log until the day is done i don't know if creating a page from a template is flexible enough to support parameters for the template, but it doesn't seem like it would be that much work to add, if wedged into the right place in the system

Another solution is to use the http://koala.ilog.fr/irclogger which already has a twiki output, see it on the twikiirc logs... http://koala.ilog.fr/twikiirc/bin/irclogger_logs/twiki

checked .zip file into CVSplugins:IrcLogPlugin

-- WillNorris - 24 Nov 2004

Where is the zip package? It is missing in the IrcLogPlugin topic.

-- PeterThoeny - 10 Feb 2007

Yup. Still missing. I for one would like to try this plugin out.

-- AndersHolm - 05 Apr 2007

I obsoleted this plugin since there is no zip file.
