Ahh ! You meant another citadel bboard (DOC?), not Bit late
but better than never for me anyway :) .

Neither a DOC nor

And I will not mention it by name or link to it here, because either one would delay its demise.

Subject: citadel-client have some ssl security problemes

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Hi guys,
Recently, our group are trying to find ssl security problems by static anlysis. Now we have find some problems in citadel-client and report this bugs to the launchpad, but we haven't receive any responses.
Could you please take a look at this bug:

For this visit I am logged in via the GUI. I hate it.

It's comparatively slow; no - it's REALLY slow.

The text client is snappy - it's VERY fast.

Only thing I like about doing it this way is the display of images and text enhancements.

That, however, is absolutely not essential to the primary task - communicating.

Yeah, I find it considerably more snappy than the web client, which isn't a cut against the web client, just a note that sometimes the old ways kinda work better for certain things.

They serve different needs and different use cases. Old-skool BBS users are *not* the target audience for WebCit.

Someone should write a version of the text client for the browser.

useless, there are terminal emulators for browsers ready there.

I thought there was something like that already.

Yes I have seen posts about terminal emulators and wondered why someone would want that.

Try another browser instead of the IE replacement Firefox. Or stop using SSL :D

Currently only chrome/chromium based browsers are reasonably fast with Webcit and SSL enabled.

I would like to see a plethora of different clients: web, ssh, Android, etc.
Just because. All communicating with the same data. That is the thing I like most about the system.

Uncoincidentally, since 2009 I have been working on a "ctdlsh" utility which no one will ever use.  :)

(Don't get excited, I've probably spent a couple of hours tops on this idea.  It's basically just a system administration shell.  Right now all it can do is shut the server down, change a user's password, and tell you what time it is.)

Basically though, this seems to be the way people write command line utilities in the 21st century (on real computers anyway; in wintendo-land they have powershell crap that no one can figure out) -- build a "shell" for the application domain, give it a bunch of subcommands that can perform any task, and allow it to run in scripts or using GNU readline when running interactively.

Alternatively, you could build Python extensions that integrate with Citadel, to give you all the power of a shell with none of the extra hassle of figuring out language constructs.

Yes.  Do this and I will come to the party.  If this happens, I will also try to extend or even write c extensions to the base libs (assuming what I wrote would pass muster).

That's been considered more than once, and it may yet happen.

I haven't had much coding time over the last two years and am hoping that 2015 will be when that changes. I want to focus on simplifying some things -- yes, even Citadel, which is dead simple compared to other solutions, could stand to have a couple of things made easier.

Most of them will revolve around removing features which address use cases that don't exist. For example, absolutely *nobody* is networking Citadel nodes in non-federated mode, so the distributed address book goes away. This removes half a box full of options from the domain configuration screen and eliminates a couple of different failure modes.

Someday I'll finish ctdlsh, which will allow the removal of numerous sysadmin functions from our beloved Text Client. Or perhaps the entire client could be rewritten in Python. Who knows. There's a *lot* of bit rot in there.

Hey IG - where's the source code for the text client to be found?
