Im Status Script

Recommended Posts

I wanted something a little more stable than OSI, and I wanted support for BitWise, so I wrote my own script. Plus it was a good excercise in learning PHP.

 

Currently supports ICQ, AIM, Yahoo, and BitWise. Does not support MSN, may never support MSN because they don't provide any easy way of checking status (other than an MSN bot which is not the most reliable). I don't really use MSN either.

 

The goal of this script was to be fast (for minimal effect for forum sigs and web pages)... so it caches the result for 2 minutes (so the change in state can take up to 2 minutes) and when it attempts to get the status from the offical servers, it will timeout after 5 seconds and deliver an offline status (instead of hanging).

 

This is pretty much as polished as it's gonna be for awhile probably. I'm pretty new to PHP so I don't claim it to be quality code. This isn't quite plug and play either (requires phpCache and cURL).

 

If anyone finds it useful or has suggestions for improvements, I wouldn't mind hearing from ya. :)

  Requires phpCache <http://www.0x00.org/php/phpCache/>
    Comment out the line "ob_end_flush();" in phpCache.inc so that headers don't get
    sent prematurely (Line 249 in phpCache v1.4)
    Depending on your environment, you may also want to change CACHE_DIR.

  Requires PHP to have cURL support compiled in.  Check your PHP configuration.
    <http://curl.haxx.se/>

  -----

  Usage: http://******/imstatus.php?<imtype>=<user>&on=<url>&off=<url>
    Online and Offline images are optional (specify location for default images below)
    Aim status requires an aimon.txt and aimoff.txt with 01 and 00 with no newline
    (echo -n 01 > aimon.txt) for simplicity (I wanted to be able to cache a result).

Btw, I should mention that if you are hosted on a shared hosting account and you post on a lot of high volume boards, this might not be the best tool for you to install. :)

 

I've recieved close to 23,000 hits to it this month alone just from the TCH forums and I'm the only one with it in my sig. B)
