What is Coincoin?¶
This is a plugin for the purple library, which allow to connect to a DaCode board, to read and send messages on it.
The default board used by prpl-coincoin is linuxfr.org/board., which popularized this kind of chat among a few french communities. Other softwares support this kind of board, like Templeet or Da Portative Bouchot.
You can find a (non-exhaustive) list of boards on this page (look at the "tribune" links).
A board is a single chat space, so prpl-coincoin creates at connection an unique channel "board".
How to install it¶
prpl-coincoin and copy the
libcoincoin.so file to
make ENABLE_PLUGIN=ON [ENABLE_MINBIF=OFF] make install
Then, use your favorite purple client (for example Minbif), and the module is automatically loaded.
How to use it¶
With Pidgin¶Create a new account, and select the CoinCoin plugin. Then, you need to give this settings:
- Username: your login[@server] on board (if the @server part is not given, defauts to linuxfr.org board)
- Password: locate your cookies for the website (from your browser), and put them here, separated by semi-colons (;)
Create a new account with the
MAP ADD command:
/MAP add coincoin USERNAME [-accid value] [-board value] [-[!]no_reformat_messages] [-password value] [-post value] [-[!]server_aliases] [-[!]ssl] [-status_channel value] [-template value] [-user-agent value]
For example to add an prpl-coincoin for DLFP:
/MAP ADD coincoin StEvE@linuxfr.org -accid cc -password _linuxfr.org_session=xxxxxxxxxxxxx--xxx
And for a custom Da Portative Bouchot board:
/MAP ADD coincoin ToTo@tribioune.mydomain.tld -password md5=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx;unique_id=yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy -board /remote.xml -post /index.php/add
Then, a remote channel is created (#board:cc) and you can talk in!
A status channel is associated to this account, but isn't used by prpl-coincoin, because there isn't any buddylist.
Help for readability¶
Each totoz is colored in green, and clocks are colored in blue.
Your IRC client, unlike other coincoin clients, doesn't hilight referenced message when you put your mouse on a timestamp. To increase readability, prpl-coincoin adds the sender nickname of the referenced message before the timestamp
For example, if there are two messages with timestamp:
10:23:09 <blah> hey guys 10:28:43 <ho> 10:23:09 f0ck you
the last message is replaced with:
10:28:43 <ho> blah: 10:23:09 f0ck you
Also, when you write a message, to reference to a previous message, instead of putting the timestamp, you can use the nickname, eventually suffixed with the number of message from last.
10:23:09 <blah> hey guys 10:28:43 <ho> 10:23:09 f0ck you 10:30:21 <blah> hey nigger
If you write:
10:32:33 <me> blah:2: youhou ho¹: you're bad
The message sent is:
10:32:33 <me> 10:23:03 youhou 10:28:43 you're bad
