the render



  • TAG is either a color, or color:char, or color:char:color
    • color can be given (as for any HTML color field) by:
      • black — name
      • #1A2B3C — 6-digit hex
      • #1AF — 3-digit hex
      • the last color, if any, is the foreground one
    • char is any good char to show (say, &bull;)
  • attributes are now unused.

Configuration and Settings

  • One may edit style.css file in the plugin's directory to customize the render.
    Actually, only the table.colortag specs (and below) are in use.


Change Log

  • 2012-05-18
    • color:char and color:char:color forms added:
      • <colortag>green:&bull;</colortag>
      • <colortag>green:&bull;:lime</colortag>
  • 2011-03-25
    • verification of color value has been added
  • 2011-03-14
    • Initial release

Known Bugs and Issues

  • No verification is done on the color value. This may lead to code injection.

ToDo/Wish List

  • make use of attributes to set color of the border lines.
  • filter the color value to prevent abuse.
  • tune up the style.css to reduce the vertical size of the resulting boxen.
  • implement (via attributes?) an automated way of mapping some device values to respective color codes (resistors, diodes, etc).
    Something like <colortag resistor=4.7kOhm></colortag>.
