Scripts manager

A new scripts manager has been added, the plugin is called "script" and provides the /script command.

This plugin will replace two scripts: weeget.py (the current scripts manager) and script.pl (providing a /script command to load/unload/reload scripts for any language).

The new /script command is similar to command /weeget with some minor differences (see /help script for more info).

The plugin provides a buffer with list of scripts in repository, which makes installation or removal of scripts very fast: just press alt+i on this buffer, and the script is installed! Not satisfied with the script? Key alt+r and the script is gone!

The buffer allows you to search string in scripts (description, tags, ...) and to sort scripts with many keys. Columns displayed can be fully customized (order, columns displayed), as well as colors.

For list of options, just do: /set script.*

List of scripts (click for full size):

Script plugin: list of scripts

Detail of a script (click for full size): Script plugin: detail of a script

Enjoy!

New plugin rmodifier

A new plugin called "rmodifier" (for "Regex modifier") has been added.

It's designed to change some strings using regex, for example to hide passwords in commands (input displayed on screen) or in history. By default, password in following commands are hidden by this plugin:

  • /msg nickserv identify ****** (input and history)
  • /msg nickserv ghost ****** (input and history)
  • /oper nick ****** (input and history)
  • /set file.section.password ****** (history only)

Of course you can add your own regex, just look at /help rmodifier.

New hook "process"

New hook type "process" has been added to WeeChat. You can use it in C plugins, and all scripts languages (perl, python, ruby, lua and tcl).

It runs a command with fork, and send you result (return code, stdout and stderr) via a callback, when command has ended, or if WeeChat output buffer is full (then it will be partial result of command). There is optional timeout (in milliseconds), to kill process if it's still running after given time.

The script shell.py has been updated to use that new hook.

New logger features

Logger plugin has been improved with many new features:

  • command /logger (to see log status for open buffers, and set/disable log level on a buffer)
  • custom level by buffer (or group of buffers)
  • custom log filename mask by buffer (or group of buffers).

Set one directory by IRC server and a file by channel inside:

Do that: /set logger.mask.irc irc/$server/$channel.weechatlog

You'll have a tree like that:

~/.weechat/
    |- logs/
        |- irc/
            |--- freenode/
            |       freenode.weechatlog
            |       #weechat.weechatlog
            |       #mychan.weechatlog
            |--- oftc/
            |       oftc.weechatlog
            |       #chan1.weechatlog
            |       #chan2.weechatlog

Log all messages on IRC buffers but not join/part/quit messages:

For all IRC buffers: /set logger.level.irc 3
For a server and its channels: /set logger.level.irc.freenode 3
For a specific channel: /set logger.level.irc.freenode.#weechat 3

Xfer plugin

A new "xfer" plugin has been added. It replaces old IRC DCC code.
This plugin is called by IRC plugin to initiate direct chat and file transfer (still by /dcc command). In future, it may be used by other plugins. Moreover, new protocols can be easily added to xfer plugin, if other plugins need that.
