Adding new message types
Is their a 'nice' way to add a new message type to Vanilla? i.e. something which is more 'modular' or 'object-orientated' than the hack I've performed here:
Existing message types are Html, BBCode, Markdown, and Text. I've added a small extension to Markdown which allows Processing.js sketches (art and interactive animations) to be included within forum messages (mainly to facilitate discussion of the Processing programming language).
It's pretty well self-contained other than a few require() statements and a new button, and Vanilla is great to work with and extremely hack-friendly, but the disadvantage of this approach is it has to be merged with new releases (or other hacks) - which has already happened to me once with those security fixes released 4th May.
I've got the forum running here
You're welcome to play, and since I'm a Vanilla newbie, there are likely to be other things I could be picked up on ;-)
