Random question on the Tutorial (also thought we should have an open thread about it, so I’m making one):
On Ubuntu 14.04, when I type “node -v” it returns nothing, as if I didn’t type a command at all. It only works when I do “nodejs -v” (v0.10.25). Just a small strange thing, been wondering if I installed things correctly.
Love the tutorials! They are in a great format also
Could this be read from outside when the page is called ? This goes out in plaintext, doesn’t it ?
The question arose when I wondered how to pass the text body so that it is pre written at the bottom of the reply that you are about to write ( you know with > at the begining of lines )
I have been thinking that it may be quite too long and hard to parse as a query string, and mainly that it may expose the precious private content to someone who would monitor the traffic on the machine.
It may be more secure to just pass a reference to the mail ( still need to understand which ) , and have mail_compose fetch the values again from Safe ( this would also put me to actually learn Safe instead of node.js ). But then it would use bandwidth and ressources from the network to fetch something we already have locally.
Maybe there is a way to transmit this content securely and locally from a page to another that I don’t know of ?
EDIT - looking into global.stuff , seems to be one way
