WebM Support Added! Sazpaimon ## Admin ## 14/05/25(Sun)10:22 No. 8117 [Reply] Stickied

Hey guys, just dropping by to let you know that WebM support is now being trialed. This means that you can now upload WebM files to enabled boards and have them be seen and used just like GIFs.

Some notes:
* Expansion works, but to shrink back down to a thumbnail, you can either click the file link in the file information area, or click and drag to the left of the video such that when your mouse leaves the left edge of the video, it will shink. This is to allow for pausing of WebMs. Expand all images will work the same as well.
* As mentioned in the Previous thread, your file must not contain an audio stream for it to be accepted. Uploading a video with an audio stream attached to it will give you an error upon upload.
* Filesize limitations of the board you are in still apply. This is usually 5MB.
* Your file must be no longer than 3 minutes (180 seconds) in length or it will be rejected.
* Files with vertical or horizontal resolutions greater than 2048 pixels will be rejected.
* As this is still a trial phase, support has only been enabled on /gif/, /b/, and /7ch/. As time passes and when we're sure that this is stable, more boards will be added.
* Once again, as this is a trial phase, there may be bugs. Please report any issues you get with files being rejected or not rejected when they shouldn't be to this thread.

Naturally everyone cannot be expected to grasp how to create compatible WebMs, thankfully there is a nice tool to help. Check out https://github.com/WebMBro/WebMConverter. It'll help you get started making content right away.
For those more comfortable in the command line, check this for a good command line reference.

Alternatives are always good but I sincerely hope it doesn't supplant GIF's.
Not only because it crashes my preferred browser but it breaks my viewing flow.
Have to use another program entirely to view my folders.

The admin handling /777/ left abruptly, so we're starting over!

Start posting new /777/ suggestions and I'll change the board next week.
(I'll ban for /sports/)

/food/, /home/ and /sports/ are all terrible. Stop suggesting them, your post will be deleted and you'll be banned.

We had /kitchen/, /dog/, and /cat/ boards a while ago. Maybe two or three years, give or take. They were popular at first, but eventually they petered out and got just as slow as /banner/. The only reason we keep /banner/ around, from what I can gather, is that we're supposed to use it to get new banners for the site.

Funny thing I remember about the /kitchen/ board, too:
I posted a thread for ramen recipes. Every reply pretty much said "add an egg" as though that was the only way to prepare it. When I asked for recipes which didn't include eggs, the thread died.

It's not really related to what either of us said, I just get a chuckle every time I remember it.

OH SHIT CODE OVERHAUL N3X15 ## Admin ## 14/09/28(Sun)13:22 No. 8342 [Reply]

Saz and I are currently working on a full-blown overhaul of 7chan's code, including both the front-end and the back-end. While you probably won't see results for a while (we tore so much out of the site that it's non-working at the moment), here are our goals.

* Full JSON API, for browser plugins. We hope to make this compatible with existing plugins. (PoC done and working)
* Updated dependencies, managed by Composer (DONE!)
* Faster and vastly simplified page generation by moving away from compiled templates (WIP, PoC done)
* Almost completely rewritten database bindings, no more ADODB-lite (DONE)
* Automated database upgrader and installer using Phinx (DONE)
* Complete rework of administrative system (WIP)
* Automated testing framework that yells at us if we do shit code (DONE, see pic)
* EVENTUAL public code release (WIP)
* HHVM support for additional speed and efficiency (WIP, all unit tests run with HHVM already)
* Rewritten, far more efficient spam filtering system (WIP)

It's going to take time, but we're already making huge strides. We'll be making regular updates as things coalesce.

Is that an overhaul of 7chan's own particular code-base or an overhaul (perhaps the one that had been in store for so long) of KusabaX/Edaha?

Sazpaimon 14/09/30(Tue)09:17 No. 8354

It's currently an overhaul of the 7chan-specific branch of Kusaba (that contains multi-file uploads, flash thumbnails, webm support, and the new front page just to name a few things). Edaha is essentially abandoned because I became unhappy with some of the decisions I made early in development and didn't want to have to re-do it from scratch all over again. This isn't a fully from-scratch rewrite, but there will still be a great deal of refactoring going on that you likely won't be able to recognize it as Kusaba once it's done.

That being said, there is a strong chance that once this is complete, we'll go through and make a public release that doesn't contain stuff that's either A. Specific to 7chan (requires specific server-side modifications outside of the code itself to function), or B. Stuff I want to keep exclusive to 7chan.

A good example of A is the flash thumbnails, which only has a few lines of code in Kusaba, but requires a Rube Goldberg machine of sorts that chains Flash, Wine, Xvfb, and Imagemagick together just to generate a thumbnail.

7chan android app BrowserDev!p1JsdJzhRA 14/07/18(Fri)06:00 No. 8196 [Reply]

File 140565601560.png - (224.50KB , 720x1280 , Screenshot_2014-07-17-21-57-26.png )

As a browser of some of the boards here, I found it somewhat difficult to navigate on a mobile device, mostly just when trying to download/save a lot of images. So I wrote up a kind of “draft” for a 7chan android app. Just something that would let me browse boards/threads, read posts, view/save images, etc. I saw some threads in which people were asking for a mobile site/app, so I decided to share it. It’s extremely basic, since it’s only been in development for about a few days. It doesn’t have all the features I want in it yet, and I’ve put almost no work into the UI.

Since the app is only a few days old, I can’t make any performance guarantees. It does its job well enough that I find myself using it, but it does have some bugs and it’s ugly. If people are actually interested in the app I’ll keep improving it.

Download link: https://mega.co.nz/#!BosAQCgD!sd8fZ3bBAfP8Vr1yXW_GeFFlMaaN_0g3JLu9f2xeeE8

Most of the app should be self-explanatory, touch the board you want to browse, then touch a thread and it’ll open. Use the arrows you see at the top of a board to move between pages on a board. Touch images to view them full size and/or save them.

Touch the gallery icon at the top of a thread to view all the images in the thread as a list. When viewing an image full size in the gallery, touch the picture on the right to load the next image, touch it on the left to load the previous image.

There’s no way to post from the app, but you can touch the eye icon at the top of a thread to open it in your browser.

Saved images go to /sdcard/7chan, where they are saved by the board name + image id. So if you saved 124853265492.jpg from /co/, the image will be at /sdcard/7chan/co124853265492.jpg

BrowserDev!p1JsdJzhRA 14/09/14(Sun)02:06 No. 8316

In the previous update, as described in the above post, I made it so the entire thread would load at once, which caused some pretty bad slowdowns in threads with lots of images. This update fixes that, by downloading image thumbnails sequentially, rather than simultaneously. Threads with lots of images (especially those with tons of multi-image posts) might still be laggy, but now that there aren’t dozens of images loading at once, you should be able to view a full size image without having to wait too long, even if images are still downloading in the thread. In the last update, trying to view a full size image before the thread was finished loading took quite a while. That might still happen, but it should be significantly less frequent.
I’ve also made some changes to the algorithm I was using to create the UI elements of the threads. The app should be able to handle larger threads than the last version(s) without crashing, but huge threads (like the /tg/ sticky, for instance) will most definitely crash the app.

Other small things added in this update include a loading icon being displayed during the initial loading of the thread. It’s animated but for now will probably freeze up during the last few moments while the thread’s ui elements are initialized. It’s also pretty ugly, oversized, and it’s not centered, but its better than staring at an empty white background while everything loads.
Placeholder logo has been changed as suggested by >>8307. Thanks for the suggestion. I think it looks a lot better, and the old logo was just a placeholder anyway.

Zoomable static images haven’t been added in this update, despite what I said in >>8305

http://floens.github.io/Clover/ < open sauce 4chan browser. haven't peeked at the sauce yet ... but unless it is entirely built around their api it may be reworkable for other boards with minimal work. op's screens look pretty sexy but if 90% of the work is already done with Clover it may be easier to just mod what is there. again haven't looked at the sauce yet... could be a giant sack of fail.

We're working on a major overhaul of the backend code to bring it up to date, get rid of a bunch of outdated shit, and, most importantly, bring in a new API stuff like this can interface with.

No script error Anonymous 14/09/09(Tue)00:35 No. 8312 [Reply]

Just encountered a curious bug while no-scripting.

I made a mis-post and went to delete it, of course, with no script disabled this does nothing and cycles back round to the same page (no idea what happens server side but it's akin to a refresh from my perspective).

No biggie I thought, I'll simply report it and ask a mod to delete it; reporting does normally work with noscript enabled.

"That post has been cleared as not requiring any deletion.

I have no idea why it's coming up and I expect the response will include an "enable scripts" but I have no idea if you guys can see the reports, if you can't I've already thought of ways to abuse it so you might want to try fix it.

So I've been working on a mobile concept for 7chan for the pass eight hundred years and got this. This is for the mobile user only. If you have no use for this and will forever remain a desktop user than go away.

As for those who are interest in seeing a mobile ui for 7chan, don't hesitate to leave comments or suggestions. Also feel free to Photoshop or MSpaint over the images if you believe it helps convey you idea.

I liked the first style better. To prevent confusion the 'post' tab should be 1st on loading the page (because I couldn't find it for a while and felt dumb after). The banner at the bottom makes the layout feel more modern, but that's just me.

I have trouble with the 'New Request Thread' sticky at the top of the page.
I can see from recent images that people are posting interesting stuff, but it doesn't load 'last 50 posts' properly, it only goes to some limit and displays those 50, not the actual ones.

When you see "11957 posts and 277 images omitted" I guess that explains it, but is there a way to fix it so the last 50 are displayed correctly?
Opening a link to the last post displayed via the board page lets you see a handful of posts before it, but it's not the best workaround.
