Re: usage of Eval

eval usage should be avoided, no ? In practice it goes like this: A: eval() should be avoided() B: Why? A: Because it's bad. B: Why? A: It's not safe. B: Why? A: It can be used to <whatever> B: How? A: I don't know. If you're interested, here's what you should do: find out how eval() is being used,...

Re: Support for Emojis

If the user used the actual emoji character or sequence then yes, you have the original character available if you want to process it at display time somehow. If they used an ASCII name such as :rainbow_flag: it gets dicier, considering there's no standard for them. Either way, the only values avail...

Re: Support for Emojis

Each emoji set uses a different filename scheme, which makes it much harder to switch from a one to another unless you maintain your own fork. EmojiOne: 1f3f3-1f308.png Twemoji: 1f3f3-fe0f-200d-1f308.svg Noto: emoji_u1f3f3_200d_1f308.svg Currently, the value that's stored in the post's data is 1f3f3...

Re: Support for Emojis

On the topic of emoji, I noticed today that GitHub have recently replaced their emoji with Noto's. GitHub's PNG is on the left, Noto's SVG on the right:

Re: Moving developement discussion to Discord

Let me put it this way:
  1. Replace IRC with Discord
  2. ???

Re: Moving developement discussion to Discord

Can you provide a practical example of something that would be made possible by using Discord instead of IRC + forums?

Re: Support for Emojis

Having consistent emoji is very expensive in development and maintenance. Here are some of the reasons. First off, every operating system, device or browser has its own way to display emoji. It can be as a nice color image, a slightly less nice black-and-white image, or even not an image at all with...

Re: Support for Emojis

Personally I have no plans whatsoever. I do maintain the Noto fork but I have no plans for it either.

The only reliable emoji set that's on a public CDN is Twemoji and it uses a different naming scheme as the one used in s9e\TextFormatter. Switching to it would require some work.

Hi JoshyPHP s9e/highlighter looks great, I installed it on a board run by phpBB 3.2 and tried it but does not seem to work! What might be a problem?
Hundreds, maybe thousands of things. If you post a link to your board that will narrow the scope.

Re: Support for Emojis

I'm considering forking either Twemoji or Noto with filenames that match Emojione for backward compatibility, but I need to check that it can be hosted by a free CDN such as cdnjs.
