so, after some hours on the keyboard and some trial and error, i got a basic setup of vichan working together with rslight, so that they exchange messages in a meaningful way.
time to switch...
some explanations and remarks on this:

-the vichan interface will only be reachable under def2.i2p, not the tor address, at least for a while. i want to get some experience with this before i subject to the rough world of onions :-).
-the interface is new - the content is still the same. so just because this is an image board software, does not mean that we have a lot of images all of a sudden, or imageboard typical content. you might of course change this.
-also the rules for moderation have not changed - keep the pepe-the-frog memes, the "jews-did-it" and "nigga u r gay" bits to yourself, they are not welcome here and will be instantly deleted (thanks to the nice mod interface of vichan). Same goes for cp of any kind, and of course the other typical stuff (drugs, weapons, hitmen, cc, hacking as a service and so on).
-there _is_ a change in my attitude to js: this interface makes heavy use of it, and although you can use it without, you will miss some of the nicer features. so i still don't encourage you to have js switched on in general, but i have to admit that this sites setup encourages it (sigh).
-this is all still kind of beta, so if you find something not working, please report it and i will try to fix it.
-if you would like to see any plugin or feature enabled, drop me a line in this thread and i will look into it (no promises, though, some of the stuff is just ugly and/or bloatware).

enjoy,

trw

the first effect from switching is that I see now how many bot requests I get on def2.i2p, apparently just scanning fixed addresses. some misconfigured search engine, most like.

i forgot to mention earlier: the dates of the messages are the dates of import, so it will be correct (or near correct) for new messages, but not corrent for the older ones. the order of the messages is preserved though, so you the oldest where you would expect them, at the end.

partly linked to the new surface, partly to some sync problems.
users are advised to use another node until this is straightened out.

working on it,

max file size on def2.i2p is set to 450 kb for the time being.
this is mostly to stay compatible with the rest of the rocksolid setup (some messages with bigger content have not been forwarded but silently dropped).
added ability to post text and zip files.
the syncing problems seems mostly solved by now, let's see if it stays stable.

cheers

that will show once it is synced (so not on the side itself).

My inn servers are set for 1M max size (default). Most of my usenet peers restrict incoming messaages anywhere from 32k (aioe) to 128k. Most messages larger than that won't propagate out of our network (which is ok, just making it known).

The size of a message is the actual size. As files take up more space when encoded for transport, and there are headers, etc., the size of the attachment would end up needing to be smaller to keep the messasge size within limits.

rslight does not limit message size, but I probably will add such a config option in the future. Most likely to match the 1M of the inn servers.

I believe there was a problem with global variables (I use way too many of them). It's possible we were changing a value where we really didn't want to do that, and it was messing up rslight.

If we don't source code from the rslight tree, it should be fine. If you need a function from rslight, just copy it and take it, running it separately from the rslight install.

Of course, we don't want to write to /var/spool/rslight at all from outside rslight stuff. If another spool is needed for something, we just create that.

I believe there was a problem with global variables (I use way too many of them).

I just read up now about global vars and why it is (apparently) a bad idea to use them.
Never used them myself, but just because the code and tutorials I used to learn me some php did not use them (so more by chance, really).
Can understand though why you would use them, because they are really convenient.

a little earlier than planned initially, but everything seems to be working fine, so what the heck.
if you prefer the rslight surface, please have a look at the other nodes (./nodes/html).

any feedback on the new surface is appreciated, especially bug reports.

cheers

def2 is trashed for the time being, broken threads, threads mixed together, missing messages. guess i have played with this too much and broke something in the db. will reinstall on the weekend, please use another node during this time.
