Agora Octave: Update #6

This will be a short update, partly because of the follow-up update I posted three days ago (which covers most of what I accomplished this week) and partly because school is now in full swing and so I’ve been spending a lot of time trying to type up my notes. Only minor changes this week. I’ll definitely do something cool by next week, though, so stay tuned.

This week

Summary of changes:

Next week

Module upload

I wasn’t able to make too much progress on this yet. Next week!


Same as above.

Ability to upload files as snippets

In the IRC channel, jwe suggested adding the ability to upload a file to be posted as a snippet, in addition to the current method of pasting it into a text box. This sounds like a useful feature, and I will work on that for next week.

Spam prevention

I’ll look into ways of dealing with spam (the old installation at was flooded with spammy snippets). Jordi suggested not publicly listing anonymous snippets, and requiring a CAPTCHA (possibly using this app) for registration.
