• Message Area - Daily stats tool

    From Mewcenary@VERT/EXTRICAT to All on Tue Feb 15 12:43:30 2022
    Hi everyone,

    I found the filelist.js tool to generate daily file lists, and that's great!

    I'm also after a similar script to generate summaries, e.g. daily, of new messages in the different Message Areas.

    I couldn't find anything obvious in the list of Synchronet scripts. Does anyone have a particular 3rd party one that they would recommend?

    Thanks,

    Mewcenary.

    What is a daily file list? A list of all files on the BBS, every day?

    Yes. Although it can be configured to only show _new_ files (which is typically how it is used).

    I just pushed an update to exec/msglist.js, give that a try. It can now be run using jsexec to output message list (of a single sub-board) to stdout with some of the same/similar options as filelist.js. Give that a shot and let me know how it works for you. It should be easy for you to update too if you have ideas about how to make it better.

    Thanks for this, and for pointing me in the right direction.

    I've made some changes and sent a merge request your way. It allows msglist.js to generate counts of the messages that hit the criteria (e.g. "new in last 2 days"), including for all groups that are on the system.

    Typical output example:

    DOVE-Net General 12
    DOVE-Net Entertainment 4
    DOVE-Net Debate 14
    DOVE-Net Internet Discussion 8
    DOVE-Net Synchronet Discussion 9
    DOVE-Net Synchronet Sysops Only 6
    DOVE-Net Synchronet Data 28
    fsxNet fsxNet Test Arena 5
    fsxNet General Chat + More.. 55
    fsxNet Mystic BBS Support/Dev 2

    All fairly rough at this point as I find my way around the codebase.

    Thanks again,

    Mewcenary.
