    Make your Etherpad react to the sun

    About

    A still experimental Etherpad plugin that changes the skin variant according to the position of the sun at a given location, so you can make your skin go dark at night.

    Requirements

    Tested with Etherpad 1.8.3 running in Node.js v12.16.3. Fixed bug that prevented minifying.

    Install

    Set your position (latitude and longitude in decimal degrees, using NOAA nonstandard negative longitude for west, positive for east) in settings.json. For example:

    Mexico City:

    ,"ep_solar": {
    "lat": 19.43,
    "lon": 99.13
    }
    

    Sydney:

    ,"ep_solar": {
    "lat": -34.87,
    "lon": -151.2
    }
    

    Other settings can be changed directly in the static/js/index.js file.

    How it works

    Given a location and time (by default, the current time of the client) an elevation of the sun is calculated and then whether it is day or night. The formulas at the NOAA ESRL Solar Position Calculator have been adapted for this purpose.

    Upon opening a pad the above calculation is performed and the skin is updated accordingly, using the same functions as the skin_variants.js.

    I use the aceSetAuthorStyle client hook, as it runs after all the iframes have been built.

    To do

    • Allow plugin to get location from client if allowed.
    • Use a different hook that allows theme to react in real time instead of needing reload.
    • Allow setting twilight/dawn colors for day/night transition.

    Install

    npm i ep_solar
