Loading the module on startup
If you are tired of typing
/LOAD otr you can put the following
If you are using irssi-otr with BitlBee you will notice
that some clients send you HTML formatted messages. Normally BitlBee
automatically strips the HTML formatting, but since the messages are
encrypted this doesn't work anymore. Nevertheless you can achieve
the same by stripping the HTML with regular expressions using the
Trigger script. Just make
sure you load the script before the otr module. You can either do this
manually or again make your
~/.irssi/startup look like this:
SCRIPT LOAD trigger.pl LOAD otr
Also make sure that
trigger.pl is not in
~/.irssi/scripts/autorun since the files from this directory
are loaded after
Since it is not possible to perfectly match HTML code with regular expressions we will take a somewhat conservative approach. We will only strip HTML tags we explicitly specified from PRIVMSGS from the BitlBee network, where we assume you added you server.
/TRIGGER add the following lines or copy them to
-privmsgs -nocase -tags 'BitlBee' -regexp '</?(a|b|body|div|em|font|i|s|u)( +\w+=".*?")*>' -replace ''
You can even make HTML line breaks look like multiple messages:
-privmsgs -nocase -tags 'BitlBee' -regexp '(\s*<br>\s*)+' -replace '\n�8/<�g�</$N�8/>�g �e'
� is the non-printable character
^D. In vi(m)
you can get it by pressing
Ctrl-v Ctrl-d in insert mode.
If your are using a theme different than the default one you probably
have to adapt the replacing string to match color and indentation.
And finally we convert some escaped HTML characters:
-privmsgs -nocase -tags 'BitlBee' -regexp '&' -replace '&' -privmsgs -nocase -tags 'BitlBee' -regexp '>' -replace '>' -privmsgs -nocase -tags 'BitlBee' -regexp '<' -replace '<' -privmsgs -nocase -tags 'BitlBee' -regexp '"' -replace '"'
These are just some basic replaces, just extend them if you need more.
