A quick question: can you read the calandar text from the ,erm, text client (also contacts list) - if so, how :) ?

Not at this time. The text client is pretty much just for BBS use. We didn't put any of the groupware/PIM stuff in it.

I like the text client!
I have a citadel installation on my laptop and use the text client sometimes, since webcit isn't installed.

I can highly recommend this setup, since Thunderbird really slows down on large cached mail folders.
I have Thunderbird imap in to the local, actually in to an lxc container that runs only citadel.

Besides the local client, I am also curious have you ever considered providing access to public rooms via the gopher protocol.

This should work great for mobile connectivity since it will use much less bandwidth.

I know this would be against the webcit principle since webcit saves (unfortunately) everything as html.
Creating a gopher only room template and providing access with citadel would be the way to go I guess.

Any thoughts? The gopher protocol is very simple.

It sounds cool -- at the same time, though, it would consume valuable developer time that could be used for other things...

For low bandwidth and/or low processing power, you could also use any text-based IMAP client like Pine or Mutt.

I don't know about using Pine or Matt on an Android or iPhone.
I guess you could, but I meant something more like a Gopher browser like Overbite

Goforit TaMeR.  If you will program it, I will use it :-)  Double if you write it in Python:

Sounds like a great idea!!

Having seen gopher, via overbite, on android; i can only think it would be a great candidate for 'the' citadel mobile client, as far as the BBS goes (floors and rooms), without the groupware.

Agreed Mo.  Thanks for suggesting it to me.  Love using Gopher (even works well over 2G networks!)

I originally started looking into Citadel (in 2005?) because I was looking for some way to communicate effectively over high latency low bandwidth links of the type I expected to be using when/if I deployed to Afghanistan. Text-based makes a heck of a lot more sense for that sort of thing.

Sig, I hear ya.  I suggested Citadel to my peeps doing low bandwidth comms with good old Eric Westguard (NY9D).  Hope you have the chance to meet him some day Sig.  He is an all around good guy.  Knows tech, and he knows politics.  But #1 he knows tech and how to motivate people.

Why does the external editor (.ee) keep going away? It's hardly a crisis, but it would be nice to know why it periodically just stops working. I wonder if something is getting overwritten...

Ctrl-D does not terminate the connection on the text client, although it should.

Heh. You guys don't want a text client, you want a shell that vaguely speaks Citadel.

... and a console calendar which includes a 'year' view. :P

contacts, appointment, diary, todo, checklists, notes, and 'in house' talker/conferencing system with split screen capability so we can continue talking while we surf the message boards, or compose mail, and independant of the room based xmpp messaging, capable of being used at anytime anywhere on the system, by anyone many to many, and any and all users at any time, thingey. :)
