• New JS Doors - Alco-Solar-JS & SyncBTC

    From KenDB3@VERT/KD3NET to All on Mon Sep 5 23:06:43 2016
    Hi folks,

    I wanted to post about two JavaScript Doors that I have been working on.

    Alco-Solar-JS is a JavaScript port of the original Python script Alco-Solar by Zero Reader from alco.bbs.io. It is a Door that displays Solar Data from hamqsl.com written in JavaScript for Synchronet BBS. It is a rather direct port of Zero Reader's Python script, but adds in a bit of code to keep you from sending too many requests to hamqsl.com (because your IP could get banned). The door stores the last XML query and will do a lookup for new data after an hour. Big thanks to Zero Reader for letting me port the work into JS, and also a big thanks to echicken for help with the code, especially how to scrape the XML data.

    SyncBTC is a Bitcoin Door written in JavaScript for Synchronet BBS and ANSI capable terminals. It is based off of something cool I saw at BitSunrise.com (aka: Black Country Rock/Bit Sunrise). All of my code was original, but the look and feel of the app is based on the BCR original program: BCR Coins v1.0. Data is pulled from Coinbase.com and no API Key is needed. Sysop configures their local currency in /ctrl/modopts.ini file. A graph of historical rates adapts to the caller's terminal size. Minimum Terminal Size = 80 Columns by 12 Rows. However, there is no Maximum. In fact, I encourage you to try a bigger terminal to see the results.

    Hey folks,

    If you downloaded a copy of Alco-Solar-JS before 9:00pm Eastern Time, there has been an update to fix a bug. I recommend you download a new copy. Same file name, however.
