@edsu I don’t need them in my parser: github.com/tomayac/wikipe…. You may be extracting more stuff than I do, though…

via Echofon in reply to edsu

@edsu BTW, when you instantiate the irc object, pass stripColors: true. Saves you some ugly parsing :-) github.com/tomayac/wikipe…

via Echofon in reply to edsu

@edsu Yes, but had rolled my own, doing essentially the same w/ some small differences (e.g., I retrieve all lang versions of articles).

via Echofon in reply to edsu

@edsu Feel free to use the API (either my code on GH, or the deployed instance wikipedia-edits.herokuapp.com/sse) to build awesomeR stuff on top of it.

via Echofon in reply to edsu

@edsu SSE is a pure _pleasure_ to work w/ on the client-side: named & generic events, streaming… It’s not widely known, so evangelizing it.

@ReaderMeter I do use bot flags _and_ an additional heuristic: _any_ of the words of the bot name end or start w/ “bot”. Captures some more…

@ReaderMeter The idea is to CSS-style the sliders like balances. It’s a v0.0.1 sample app, more interesting is the SSE API for future work.
