Logon List

The Logon List module (exec/logonlist.js) is responsible for displaying and maintaining the list of BBS logons. It uses the logonlist_lib.js library to store/retrieve logon information in JSON Lines (.jsonl) format.

Format

The new data/logon.jsonl file replaces the functionality of the old (but still supported/maintained) data/logon.lst file.

The advantages of the new format include:

  1. Standard file format
  2. Easily parseable by scripts/programs (especially JS)
  3. Supports non-terminal protocol logons (e.g. HTTP/HTTPS)
  4. No display-style (e.g. colors) embedded in the file

Files

  • The current day's logons are stored in data/logon.jsonl
  • Yesterday's logons are stored in data/logon.0.jsonl
  • The logons from 2-days ago are stored in data/logon.1.jsonl
  • etc...

Install

To install the Logon List module, execute from a command-line:

jsexec logonlist install
