 +====== Fido Nodelist Browser ======
 +
 +A full-screen lightbar browser for Fidonet (and compatible) network nodelists, with search functionality. ​ Lets you view the details of any node and send netmail to its operator.
 +
 +By default, this will pick up any nodelists you've configured through [[util:​sbbsecho#​echocfg]] (or in [[:​config:​sbbsecho.ini]]).
 +
 +===== External Program Configuration =====
 +
 +In [[:​util:​scfg|SCFG]],​ set up a new External Program as follows:
 +
 +|Name|Nodelist Browser|
 +|Internal Code|FTNNV|
 +|Command Line|?​fido-nodelist-browser|
 +
 +All other settings can be left at their default values
 +
 +===== Settings =====
 +
 +You can optionally add a ''​[fido_nodelist_browser]''​ section to [[config:​modopts.ini]]. ​ Here is an example of that section:
 +
 +  [fido_nodelist_browser]
 +  auto_close_domain = true
 +  auto_close_zone = true
 +  auto_close_net = true
 +
 +This module uses ''​tree.js'',​ a hierarchical lightbar menu library. ​ The ''​auto_close_*''​ settings determine whether an already-expanded domain, zone, or net branch of the tree is automatically closed when the user expands another branch at the same level. ​ By default these are all set to ''​true'',​ the effect of which is to reduce memory usage and to avoid sluggishness in the lightbar menu.  If you don't like this default behaviour, you can set any or all of these to ''​false''​.
 +
 +If you have some nodelists that aren't known to [[util:​sbbsecho]] (or if you're using an older version of [[util:​sbbsecho]]) you can point to them by adding keys that begin with ''​nodelist_'':​
 +
 +  nodelist_SomeOthernet = /​path/​to/​a/​nodelist
 +  ​
 +In the above example, this network would show up as ''​SomeOthernet''​ in the top level of the lightbar menu.
 +
 +If you have a nodelist configured with [[util:​sbbsecho]] but its domain-name isn't ideal for presentation,​ you can override it by adding a key that begins with ''​domain_'':​
 +
 +  domain_fidonet = FidoNet
 +
 +In the above example, the domain configured as ''​fidonet''​ via ''​echocfg''​ would show up as ''​FidoNet''​ in the lightbar menu.
 +
 +===== Searching =====
 +
 +The search box uses ''​typeahead.js'',​ which provides live search results in a lightbar menu.  Type your query (a partial node address, system name, sysop name, or location) and then wait a second for results to pop up.  Don't hit enter to submit your search, as this will not have the desired effect.
