EndChan/InfinityNow Terminal Client Morphosis 06/03/2018 (Sun) 21:18:45 [Preview] No. 12749
How hard would it be to create a terminal client for endchan/InfinityNow? I know that the OverChan android app can view this site; does that work by scraping or is there an API?

It would be much more comfy to browse here from the terminal than through the browser. You could have proper keyboard navigation between posts, and you wouldn't need a mouse at all. The biggest issue that comes to mind would be solving the captcha for making posts.

Why would you browse an imageboard on the terminal?

It's a better browsing experience. You don't need to bloat the program with "web features" that are never going to be used. Me browsing only this page uses 400MB of RAM due to the fact that I have to open Firefox. You also get dedicated controls (as mentioned above).

As for the actual viewing of images, most terminals have support for rendering images (ranger, for example, has thumbnail support for images), and if they don't it's not too hard to make a script to open sxiv or something to view them.

I coded a little emacs extension parsing the json of a thread to a very readable org file (to save threads). So making a client wouldn't be that hard. But I'll not share it.

Use emacs.
There are several ways to browse the web from it.

Ncurses-based console client for sosach, you might try to fork it and change API.

Thanks for the idea, OP

Is this for real?

Yup. It's real.
So far I'm focused on making a read-only browser, but I hope that with w3mimgdisplay I'll be able to add posting mode and captchas inside the terminal.
But before any public release I plan to revise the UI, add proper text formatting & post image viewing and make the backend more flexible.

So, one infinity later, anon delivers.
This thing is nowhere near completion, and the code is mediocre at best, but it has it's main features implemented, so it's time to share it, I guess.

I was going to write something similiar a week ago, but thought "Nah, too lazy". Thanks for it, anon!

BTW, what's your terminal font?

My font is lucy tewi.

Your code is the best code until someone do it better. Thanks for share the code.

w3m works pretty well too.

Quick update: tibb just got support for Tor.
It's kinda pointless right now, but it'll be important later, when I'll finally add posting support.

Have you considered adding support for fuuka sites like desuarchive and warosu?

Anonymous 12/29/2018 (Sat) 15:45:32 [Preview] No.13057 del
No, but it's not a problem, I can do it later.
The main focus right now is posting support.
