Item200: Integrate Colas' IRC-logger in the website layout

We have a cool software from Colas' that we use to log the IRC-Chats on #twiki_fork.

  • Could we get the raw view into the NextWiki-layout?
  • Could we also display the 10 most recent lines from our IRC-chat on our home page?

That would be cool from a marketing-point-of-view.

Ok, seems doable. What do you mean for 2st point?
  1. use a styling on the IRC logs similar to the one on the nextwiki site (with links getting back to the site)
  2. just %INCLUDE the log of the day in a page (but note that this would mean an URL where the contents change. may be problematic)
    • Note it is actually currently impossible because this site forbids external URLs including

On the 10 most recent lines, we may have a space problem, lines can be
  1. quite long
    • Do I have to show at most the first N chars of a line?
  2. include big unbreakable urls
    • This is simpler, I will have to provide a abbreviated form for URLs (or even automatically use tinyurl?)

For the homepage I envision an Ajax-like application that automatically updates when somebody writes something on IRC. But it should only use limited space, so only the most recent 10 comments on IRC should be displayed.

Ok, I guess this is twofold:
  1. Style the logs to have the looks of the foswiki site (header, colors, fonts), and navigation links to it (easy)
  2. Provide the "homepage view" of the last 10 comments, but as ajax/javascript so that to keep a static homepage to not load the server (more work)

I have tried to use an iframe (because this site does not allow to include urls), see IrcLoggerTest. It would be useful to scroll to the end of the page automatically, but therefore an anchor #PageBottom would be needed to link to.

An iframe is not perfect: each link loads a page inside the iframe.

Closing this item, the IRC logger system is now part of the foswiki main site ecosystem.
