  • tyl_mighty_slash : yo
  • tyl_mighty_slash : i cant see the sidebar
  • admin : hello tyl, it's not yet deployed. Working on fixing a few bugs.
  • admin : I will probably deploy it in a couple of days
  • admin : The user list (people who are online) and the chat rooms (subscribed rooms) were not being displayed on smaller screens
  • admin : Now the user and room lists can be viewed on smaller screens as well,
  • admin : I used modals. Here are screenshots https://imgur.com/a/b9GJu
  • admin : Going to spend some time trying to improve the css : make the chat input stickied to the bottom, tweak the layout and improve usability on mobile
  • admin : then I'll start working on a simple api for bots and build a few simple bots hosted on aws lambda
  • admin : made the changes that I mentioned above. It looks fine on all devices except tablets in portrait mode. The empty space between the chat input and messages is an eye sore
  • admin : https://imgur.com/a/HtRFG
  • admin : I'll probably redo the layout at a later point. It's not too bad actually, should be fine for now
  • admin : just deployed the updated code. Make sure to clear your cache, since the js files are likely to be cached by the browser
  • admin : Still need to make a lot of minor changes before I can work on the api for bots
  • admin : the server config does not have ipv6 support enabled by default. The letsencrypt certbot will enable ipv6 support by default sometime soon, so until this site is ipv4 only
  • admin : *until then
  • admin : If the update does not land soon I will probably modify the config to add support for ipv6. Relevant issue https://github.com/certbot/certbot/issues/3640
  • admin : static resources are cached for only 24 hours since I will be changing the js frequently
  • admin : pagespeed insights gives this site 63/100 on mobile and 86/100 on desktop. It complains that the browser cache duration is too short (deliberate) and that I am not prioritising visible content (30 chat messages are loaded but only 10 are visible to the user) which is also deliberate
  • admin : It also complains about the js and css being render blocking. Not sure what to do about this : 5 js files are loaded before the closing body tag, bootstrap css is the only one that blocks rendering. And the google analytics is async
  • admin : Pingdom gives this site grade A and the load time is 217ms from the closest server and 1.5s from the farthest (melbourne)
  • admin : https://imgur.com/a/QUnOZ
  • admin : The performance is good enough. I won't try optimizing any more
  • 6typos : hi admin!! Sorry for the long time not coming, but was away from home for the last week, and university has already started
  • admin : Hi 6typos!
  • admin : I made a lot of changes to the site including adding support for user created chat rooms
  • admin : Currently working on building a simple api for bots
  • admin : Then I'll start promoting the site
  • admin : Hopefully I'll be able to get a version 1 up in a couple of days
  • 6typos : Yeah, I see what you did with the place, and it's nice!
