Logging

Post by Aristos » 05 May 2014 17:31

I usually log my games so I can review things, take notes, etc. Yes, I know that sounds nerdy, but more often than not, it has shed some light on difficult matters (quests, and such). I was wondering, is there a way to log using the client?

It's difficult to implement this in a scalable way which works in all browsers.
There are rather strict limits to what kind of file storage you can do from a web app.
And unfortunately Firefox refuses to support anything other than IndexedDB, which isn't very good for logs.

But i'll probably get something working using IndexedDB eventually.

How about Chrome? :-) I think most people use it.

I wonder if it would be possible to store logs in a JSON as {"date": "log"}. Not sure if it can accept strings this long though... If it would be possible then you could even access your logs from different dates without problem.
Time is precious. Waste it wisely.
