plug-message-split

plug-message-split

Reliable message splitting for plug.dj chat messages.

Why?

plug.dj's chat server truncates chat messages at 250 bytes (not characters). It also first html-escapes some characters before truncating. This leads to funny bugs when using certain characters:

This library splits or truncates messages taking all known plug.dj oddities into account.

Installation

npm install --save plug-message-split

API

var msg = require('plug-message-split')
msg.split(string)

msg.unescape(string)

split(string): Array<string>

splitRaw(string): Array<string>

Split a message on full characters. This might break words in two, but unicode characters will be kept intact.

Truncate a message to only full characters. Any content beyond the 250 bytes limit is discarded. It might break words, but not characters.

HTML-escape a string like plug.dj escapes chat messages.
