are you using a git client app?
on mac its just git pull
Bill
@kirah1314
Aug 08 2015 00:01
lol, i should really just get a mac
yeah or install ubuntu
but this is good, most other people are using windows
it also seems the app runs under just vanilla node too
so you dont need to get iojs
Bill
@kirah1314
Aug 08 2015 00:02
oh ok, i got iojs but I have no idea how to use it or what does it do...
I think for windows, it's git sync
let me try
@dcsan so do I use the run.sh file to run the bot? or go to the localhost? Both doesn't work btw
dc
@dcsan
Aug 08 2015 00:06
nope
it should jsut start with node
node app.js
is that how you usually start apps on windows?
Bill

just double click the icon
so about wiki for the other bonfires? Is there no need for them? There's only a handful on git right now
Bill

when I click the app.js icon, it has an error and windows won't let me run it. The error is:
Line 7, char 1, object expected

@dcsan oh by the way, when someone says help reverse in the help chatroom, the reverse a string wiki's first page pops up with the picture but at the bottom is a link to the whole wiki. Is that intentional?

find bonfire
dc
@dcsan
Aug 08 2015 01:01
the find command will list all the found items
but help just pulls up the first one
not sure how to work around that - if we should block bonfires from normal wiki search so people don't open up a spoiler?
Bill
@kirah1314
Aug 08 2015 01:05
@dcsan i mean there's a link provided where people can click and go to the github page
and are we making wiki's just for the above bonfires? How about the other like 30 bonfires?
dc
@dcsan
Aug 08 2015 01:14
i just made placeholders for a few of them...
but hopefully we'll have them for all BFs eventually
Bill
@kirah1314
Aug 08 2015 01:17
ahh ok, the other ones you made are pretty complicated to explain lol. Can you make a few new ones below bonfire # 20?
or am I able to make them? I can if I have access :)
dc
@dcsan
Aug 08 2015 01:50
to make more wiki pages?
yeah anyone can just make them
@kirah1314 just hit edit on the wiki link and it will create a page with that name
ie from that bonfire's custom room when you type hint
eg like in here
:point_up:
Bill
@kirah1314

@dcsan you can rename any file by clicking on it once and pressing f2 as for running he needs to run from cod always and not by clicking the icon.

@dcsan Not yet unfortunately but I will try what Ben mentioned above later today. Have to take care of some errands first. Strange I made some bonfires but it's not listed when you said find bonfire

actually that only pulls in the first 20 elements i think
anyway you don't have to rename the file to .env anymore. i changed it so its just dot.env so should be ready to go more or less right away!
