• Can you have JS determine logon

    From mhansel739@VERT to All on Tue Apr 18 13:16:40 2023
    At this time, I have a weather app that works quite well. But to have it run at logon and have it run as a separate door, I have to setup two separate copies of the app. One of them reads the user's zip code (or uses the system zip code) - this is the one at logon. The other one asks the zip code for the weather the user wants - the external app. Can you, in Javascript for Synchronet, determine if the app is being run at logon or as an external app? Or is there something I am missing? I am relatively new to Javascript, so I could use some pointers. The files for the app are located on my github: https://github.com/mhansel7399/SyncWeather
    Thanks in advance.

    I would just check if(bbs.node_action == NODE_LOGN) to check if the user is in the logon process.

    Note: Don't confuse with NODE_LOGON (that's a different value for a different purpose).

    Can you make it so it takes command line parameters? That way if you run it with -from-login or something, it does the detection... or -ask-zip makes it asks for the zip without detection.
