wsc.dAmn by photofroggy wsc.dAmn by photofroggy

Introducing wsc.dAmn



wsc.dAmn is a chat client for deviantART's chatrooms, dAmn.
The client is made using HTML5, CSS3, and Javascript. WebSocket is used for connecting to the chat server.

This client includes features from superdAmn and dAmn.ws.
No extra extensions or plugins are needed to get the experience above the bare minimum possible these days.

I am releasing this client as an alternative to dA's own client for the chatrooms.

Be warned that there may still be bugs.

You can start using wsc.dAmn here.

For a broader introduction to wsc.dAmn, visit this page.

Sorry to bother, but I'm also getting an authentication failed message. Is something wrong or....?

Hello.

I've been using this program for a couple of days, and recently, I've been getting a "Authentication Failed" message. What should I do?

You may have to log out then log back in on frogpond.herokuapp.com

Not sure otherwise.

Found a :bug: don't know if other people have already told you but the /ignore function doesn't work properly.  While you can /ignore someone, it resets so you can see their stuff for the next session, but they are still technically ignored because of the /ignore that you had done previously, so you end up having to /unignore and /ignore for every session.   Just thought I would let you know. I really enjoy using it.

it keeps saying can't get /(chatroom name)
I accidentally left it running last night on my phone so did I do something? I know some else is having the same problem but different reasons possibly?

I think that maybe the proxy server is down. I will look into this more when I have the time. So, this could be broken for a while, sorry.

Keep an eye on my journal for updates.

The emote picker has been removed for now. You can still use emotes from the emote CLOUD, though.

Thank you so much for this! I use this when I'm on my iPod since the real DA chatrooms don't work on it, it's great! Although it could be a bit more mobile friendly, I don't really mind the screen zooming in when I type ^^

o-o I think the only thing that has been confusing lately with it, is it will think im still connected to chatrooms, or it will keep me connected to chats after I have closed them out, and I have to /part them individually, and one pops up that I dont even join at all called #datashare, and I searched for the room in the da chat thingy, and it says it doesnt exist.  Other than that though, it works pretty well.

There is currently a bug with using the 'x' button to leave channels. For now, using /part is the only way for it to work properly.

#DataShare is a hidden channel that you join automatically. It is used to implement certain features. Not really something you need to worry about.

dA made changes to the API again, removing user idents. I think this has caused the login system to not quite work properly. I may have to block access to wsc.dAmn for now, until I know what is going on with the idents.

As soon as I can get back online, or rather on dAmn, I will download this. I'll wipe my browsers and reinstall fresh ones just for this special awesomeness.

Try clearing your cache and/or deleting the cookies you have stored for frogpond.herokuapp.com

Other than that I'm not sure how to fix the problem.

Quick question, had you previously logged into the newer looking website? The newer website has a menu on the left of each page (except for the chat client itself).

I'm using Chrome and it rarely works for me; I try nearly every time I go into chats. It goes on like this, after emotes load: 

  • 22:26:14** Connected to dAmnServer 0.3 *
  • 22:26:58** You have been disconnected * no login
  • 22:26:58** Connection closed *
  • 22:26:58** Connecting in 2 seconds *
  • 22:27:01** Opening connection *
  • 22:27:01** Connected to dAmnServer 0.3 *
  • 22:27:46** You have been disconnected * no login
  • 22:27:46** Connection closed *
  • 22:27:46** Connecting in 2 seconds *
  • 22:27:49** Opening connection *
  • 22:27:49** Connected to dAmnServer 0.3 *
  • 22:28:34** You have been disconnected * no login
Is it just me?

The most likely thing is that your token has expired. To fix this, go to frogpond.herokuapp.com/chat click "log out" then authorise the application again. It should work after doing this.

Tested and works for Internet Explorer 11, Chrome, Safari. Even works on Chrome app for iPhone. It does require zooming in and out of course, but this isn't too difficult. If you're nimble with your fingers this app is useable on iPhone.

Given that it works on an iPhone I imagine it would work better on an iPad given that it has a better screen. The more I learn about this app the more and more I like it. I really want to get this app more exposure somehow, it's strange how hardly anybody knows about it.

Thanks for testing! An advantage of coding to web standards means that things should work reliably across a greater number of platforms.

wsc.dAmn currently does not have a UI that was designed to work with phones. I have been considering making one, it's just a matter of having the time to do so.

I think a lot of people do know about this client. At a guess I'd say more people prefer the official client. I'm working on things that should garner some interest, but I'm guessing it'll be a largely futile effort.

Hey, any idea of when you'll be posting more themes? I know I asked about this before, when i requested a darker theme. The new deep-blue theme is night and all, but its still hard on my eyes. Is there away you can make it so we can customize our window colors?

:iconphotofroggy:
photofroggy Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
Having a theme designer built into the client is a goal, but it's a hell of a long way off. More likely to see different themes appearing before then.

Sorry about the eyes and such.

If i know the coding language the client used, I might be able to come
up with some basic themes and send them to you; but I don't lol. becides,
my coding is limited to C++, HTML/XTML, and CSS.

Hey, if it uses any of these, or even java or Php, send me the theme code
in a Note and I'll look into designing from themes for you. I'd like to see this
take off ^_^

Well, the themes are done using scss, which is compiled to CSS. There's a repository that holds both the css and the scss.

Super cool! It did shave a second or two off the startup, and I do like the ability to switch between tabs with the keyboard. (I don't know if that second one is offered by an extension :slow:)
Only thing I could suggest would maybe be a favicon? I don't know if it's possible or not with Heroku, but if anything it would make it fit in with the rest of my tabs.

Favicons are possible, just haven't had the time/motivation to make one. It isn't something that is required, but would be nice to have. Plus, I'm not good with artworks :paranoid:
