However, I don't currently own an Android device to develop/test on, and I wanted to see if there'd be enough interest to make it worth spending the money first.

It can be downloaded from the <a href="http://code.google.com/p/potatomushclient/wiki/Downloads?tm=2">Google Code site</a>.</p> <p>This version includes a number of bug fixes, as well as some new features and improvements; the full list of changes is below.</p> <p>Many thanks to Cheetah, who helped greatly in getting it running properly on Linux. Instructions for <a href="http://code.google.com/p/potatomushclient/wiki/RunFromSource">running Potato from the source on Linux</a> are now available.</p> <p>Input always appreciated - please feel free to drop me a page/@mail/email, leave a comment here, or open a ticket on the Google Code site.</p> <p>-- Mike</p> <p><b>Changes</b></p> <ul> <li>Potato now handles it better when you attempt an SSL connection to a game/port which doesn't support SSL. Reported by Paige and Huz.</li> <li>The new Packet Debugger's two text windows scrolled correctly when you used the scrollbar, but not when you used the mousewheel or cursor keys. This has now been fixed.</li> <li>MacOS lineendings (LF) are now handled correctly when sending text to a MU on MacOS X. Reported by Minion.</li> <li>A long-standing bug involving scrolling with exceptionally long lines in the backscroll has finally been tracked down and fixed. Huzzah! Reported by Paige.</li> <li>Logs can now optionally include timestamps. Suggested by anony858.</li> <li>It's now possible to suppress some Activity notifications for specific Events. Suggestion and patch by Huz.</li> <li>The mousewheel could occasionally scroll two text widgets at once. Reported by Paige.</li> <li>A new per-world option tells Potato to send a Telnet NOP (which does nothing) at regular intervals, to act as a keepalive. Suggested by Reaver.</li> <li>Added a small margin to the left of the output text, to make selecting easier on some platforms. Requested by Minion.</li> <li>New menu entries in the Text Editor and Mail Window for Cut/Copy/Paste. Suggested by Fally.</li> <li>/show is now aliased to /world and /w for SimpleMU compatability. Suggested by AnneLions?.</li> <li>Help for more /commands added after prodding by AnneLions?.</li> <li>Much help getting Potato running from source on Linux provided by Cheetah. (Thankyouthankyou!)</li> <li>The mouse wheel didn't always work on Linux. Reported by iconoclasmandheresy and Cheetah.</li> <li>Potato was overly picky about the cipher to use for SSL connections, preventing connections to some games. Reported by Paige, fixed by Cheetah.</li> <li>The Customize Keyboard Shortcut window didn't resize vertically properly. Reported by Cheetah.</li> <li>New keyboard shortcut, Control+O, switches the focus between the two input windows. (Tab/Shift-Tab moves between all UI elements.) Suggested by Cheetah.</li> <li>SSL support now works on Windows out of the box, without having to download or install any extra libraries.</li> <li>The Linflash package, which allows for better taskbar-flashing on Linux, is now bundled. However, you may still need to compile it yourself to work correctly on your system.</li> <li>Added a new 'Check for Updates' feature in the Help menu, which looks to see if the latest release of Potato is newer than the copy you're using. Potato will also check for updates automatically on startup by default.</li> <li>New optional Select To Copy feature added, where selecting text from the output window automatically copies it to the clipboard. Suggested by Padraic.</li> </ul> </div> <section class="field field--name-field-blog-comments field--type-comment field--label-above comment-wrapper"> </section> Fri, 13 Jul 2012 06:50:40 +0000 talvo 1111 at https://community.pennmush.org Give your MUSH a web-based guest client! https://community.pennmush.org/node/993 <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Give your MUSH a web-based guest client!</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span>walker</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Sun, 2011-10-16 13:05</span> <div class="field field--name-topic field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/23" hreflang="en">Clients</a></div> </div> <div class="node__links"> <ul class="links inline"><li class="comment-forbidden"></li></ul> </div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>As a followup with <a href="http://community.pennmush.org/story/kindling-new-client">Banana</a> - I am now offering, for free, guest web accounts for anyone who would like the ability to offer a lightweight, web-based guest connection to their mush.</p> <p>You can see an example here: <a href="http://client.pennmush.org/guest/bugmush">http://client.pennmush.org/guest/bugmush</a> - That's my development mush.</p> <p>M*U*S*H and CrossroadsMUSH are also available. (But please note, you can only 'guest' to one mush at a time!)</p> <p>If you would like to set one up for your mush, this is what I need from you:</p> <p>1) Your MUSH's name, host and port. (e.g: WalkerMUSH at walker.pennmush.org port 4240</p> <p>2) Write up some text (or you can use HTML!) for the header and footer of the client.</p> <p>3) Optionally, you can have some text to auto-send. e.g: "connect guest" and "+newbie Hello from a Web Guest!"</p> <p>4) Contact me as Walker at M*U*S*H and we'll get you set up and going! =). Alternately, email those to me at captdeaf@gmail.com</p> <p>FAQ:</p> <p>&gt; Can I have it in a different layout or add other features to it?</p> <p>Absolutely! The client can be as customized as you want it to be - but that's out of the scope of this blog post =). And you'd have to do the work of customizing, but I can tell you where+what to do.</p> <p>&gt; What about security? Can somebody spam me with it?</p> <p>They can, but they can spam you anyway. If it turns out to be a problem, then ban the pennmush.org IP - The client.pennmush.org server is currently running on it. And if you want, we can talk more about this as well, just contact me on M*U*S*H! =).</p> <p>&gt; Are there logs?</p> <p>All output from the mush is logged, and tagged by guest number. If that concerns you, then you don't have to use it - you are free to download, install, and maintain a copy of Banana on your own server =).</p> <p>&gt; Can I use it as a web client to connect to any mu*s I want?</p> <p>Certainly, but this requires getting a user account from me. Anonymous people can only connect freely to mushes who want them. Again, if you want full control, it's open source.</p> <p>&gt; Why are you doing this?</p> <p>For several reasons.</p> <p>1) I wrote Banana, and I want to see it used =).<br /> 2) I think that a web client might get more people into MUSHing, which is a tough trick in this day and age.<br /> 3) I could use the broader user base for bugtesting =).<br /> 4) Because the bandwidth involved is minimal, and it's fun.</p> <p>&gt; Where can I get more information about Banana?</p> <p>From two places:</p> <p>1) The CPO blog post about Banana: <a href="http://community.pennmush.org/story/kindling-new-client">http://community.pennmush.org/story/kindling-new-client</a><br /> 2) My personal blog post about it: <a href="http://www.carbonatedblog.com/2011/09/bananananana.html">http://www.carbonatedblog.com/2011/09/bananananana.html</a></p> </div> <section class="field field--name-field-blog-comments field--type-comment field--label-above comment-wrapper"> </section> Sun, 16 Oct 2011 18:05:07 +0000 walker 993 at https://community.pennmush.org The kindling of a new client https://community.pennmush.org/node/920 <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">The kindling of a new client</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span>walker</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Sun, 2011-05-01 02:12</span> <div class="field field--name-topic field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/23" hreflang="en">Clients</a></div> </div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>I've been working on developing a new client to scamper alongside the giants: Tinyfugue, MUSHclient, Potato, Atlantis, and many others. Into this world now comes my creation: Banana of the many Clients.</p> <p>To be specific, Banana is an HTTP &lt;-&gt; Mu* gateway. It creates a proxy that web pages can use to build pure-HTML-and-Javascript web clients, using AJAX to poll events.</p> <p>The web has exploded the past 10 years. From &lt;a href&gt; to $('#foo').click(...), from IE 4.0 to Chrome, the web has grown by leaps and bounds in usability. More people are probably working on JavaScript right now than TFScript has had in its entire history. More designers are comfortable with HTML than a toolkit, even those running on .NET.</p> <p>So why not utilize that power to bring MU*ing to the 21st century Web?</p> <p>This is what Banana is built for.</p> <p>The use of AJAX rather than attempting to use a Java or Flash socket, or the still-in-development WebSocket allows even older browsers to work with it. As an extreme case in point, here it is, running on my Kindle 3:</p> <p><a href="http://client.pennmush.org/KindleMuClient.jpg">Kindle pic</a></p> <p>But just because it can run on a Kindle is no reason to design for the latest and greatest features of HTML and JavaScript! Can you imagine a mush with scripted control over a 3D HTML canvas? Would you find mu*ing easier if it was in a tab in your browser right next to your gmail? Can you imagine pop-out page conversations that read like an instant message? A fusion of Softcode and JavaScript?</p> <p>Some screenshots of other versions of clients, all under development:</p> <p><a href="http://client.pennmush.org/OzClient.png">Qa'toq's "oz" client</a></p> <p><a href="http://client.pennmush.org/GuestClient.png">M*U*S*H Guest client</a></p> <p>If you can, and you're interested in learning more, hit me up at Walker@M*U*S*H!
