Inserting a script output into the compliments module



  • I’ve have a javascript file that checks the date to display a certain message and if the date doesn’t match will output a random quote I have in an array. At the at moment I have that working ok but i’m stuck on how to take the var it has and put that in the module. I’m thinking that I could possibly add the anytime array into that java file for the remote file to pull it from it but I’m not sure if this would work

    {
        "anytime" : [
            text
        ],
    

    with the var=text
    Also i’m not sure if it would refresh throughout the day like the normal compliments do.

    Would anyone mind giving me some advice? Thank you



  • So i was rereading the wiki and noticed the remote file needs to be in .json format while the script is in .js. I’m sure that will make things more difficult
