• enigma 1/2 sysop managment within board

    From bbsing@21:1/101 to All on Fri Apr 21 17:25:13 2023
    Does anyone know if there are sysop management functions within the enigma BBS?

    I know on some BBS systems sysops can manage aspects of the board without doing backend changes, .. well at least I think thats how it used to be.

    ... ASCII stupid question, get a stupid ANSI.

    What type of functions are you looking for?

    * General management of users/ACS/bases/etc: oputil.js
    * WFC screen for some basic stuff
    * Add your own like this blog: https://westwoodbbs.net/t/enigma-1-2-sysop-module-creation/57
    * Editing of menus/theme/etc.: Just edit the .hjson files

    I know on some BBS systems sysops can manage aspects of the board wit doing backend changes, .. well at least I think thats how it used to

    What type of functions are you looking for?

    I was thinking about total management of the BBS system.

    Could be changing art work, menus, adding or removing message areas (forums),
    a drop to backend, just about all aspects.

    I wanted to lock down all other access to the system except for the web front end, and manage as much as possible via the bbs itself.

    I have a ways to go with my enigma setup, and i'm in the middle of a move so
    my lab is still offline, but when it comes back on I hope to get back into
    it.

    Is there an option for mysql, mariadb, posgresql as the enigma database?

    I'll try to write a system to integrate with my older phpbbs to synce the message areas and mchat functions into enigma. If a users on the phpbbs side posts a message it will show up in enigma 1/2, and if a user on the enigma posts a message in a forum it will show by the same user in the phpbbs.

    If syncing is too difficult then I'm just going to do a one time merge from phpbbs mysql databse into the sqlite enigma database.

    This is such a great idea and the reason I'm considering Enigma. Being
    node.js based it seems like a much more conducive platform to tie into the
    web. Keen to hear how this goes and if there are any others who have bridged their BBS into the web in any meaningful way.

    You can do all of that right now. To drop into a shell, you'd have to add e.g. a +op only 'door'.

    See groups and ACS in docs

    No, the DB is a 'private' detail; but it's SQLite.

    This would be done like FTN/etc., which are all considered 'external' to Enigma (but sync)

    See previous post as to how you'd write a mod to do this stuff. FTN, ActivityPub, NNTP, etc. all all built this way -- "external" to enigma, but with a mod to bridge the gap.
