A pastebin for /savemsgs

Post by allejo » Thu Feb 01, 2018 6:59 am

So a few months ago, I started working on a pastebin-like website for /savemsgs log files. Introducing Project Roconut!

http://roconut.projects.allejo.io/

The BZFlag client has the ability to save your console log through the /savemsgs command. However, by default, this saved log will keep the ANSI escape codes, which define the colors of text, but to the average human, this looks like gibberish. The concept of creating a converter for these files is not new, however they were not always user friendly and typically required downloading dependencies, which weren't always cross-platform friendly. I built Roconut with the intention of being a solution anyone can use anywhere. All you need is a BZFlag account, which you likely already have :)

Take note, this is not an official BZFlag project and is currently hosted on my own server. No one else can see your messages unless you share the link with people. All pastes are stored securely on my server, so if trust me and all the services I provide, then you can trust Roconut :D

If you find a security vulnerability giving you access to other people's pastes or anything you shouldn't have access to, please tell me privately and give me time to fix it before it is made public. I take privacy seriously and I'm storing your private conversations, so I'd like to fix any issues quickly.

Here's a sample upload: http://roconut.projects.allejo.io/view/ ... 133e99b631

I currently have one feature in beta and that's message filters, which allow you hide certain types of messages. The way these filters work is incredibly difficult so they're far from perfect and still need work. So if you upload a paste and see some weird behavior when you select certain filters, please let me know and I'll work on fixing the filters. There are far too many inconsistency in the BZFlag client when it comes to console messages so it's really difficult to write these filters.

Just like most of my work, the source code for Roconut is available on GitHub.

Feedback is most welcome!
Here's my personal website and my open source projects are available on GitHub; I work on a lot of cool things.

This is good! I always use /savemsgs -s for plain text

I like this, Thank You Allejo.
Take a look at my Defender game mode concept.

Thinking is not an automatic process. A man can choose to think or to let his mind stagnate, or he can choose actively to turn against his intelligence, to evade his knowledge, to subvert his reason. If he refuses to think, he courts disaster: he cannot with impunity reject his means of perceiving reality.
