ChatBinaryButton adds a "Binary!" button to Chat's message box, converting message text to binary. The button's layout was created with code borrowed from OneTwoThreeFall's ChatSendButton. The binary conversion code borrows code created by Penguin-Pal and らり牛ちゃん.

The alternate version, proposed by Cheeseskates, allows the user to review the converted binary in the message box prior to posting in the chat.

The button may be used in conjunction with ChatHacks and ChatSendButton.

Usage

  • For site-wide use, add the code below to your wiki's MediaWiki:Chat.js page.
  • For personal use, add the code below to your chat.js page on any wiki.
importArticles({
    type: 'script',
    articles: [
        'u:dev:ChatBinaryButton.js'
    ]
});

To use the alternate version, add this code to the previously mentioned locations.

importArticles({
    type: 'script',
    articles: [
        'u:dev:ChatBinaryButton2.js'
    ]
});
importArticles — Best Practices for installing JavaScript on FANDOM
The importArticles statement is designed to combine multiple HTTP requests into a single data transfer, allowing multiple scripts to load and execute faster. If you've been installing several different scripts, your JavaScript file has probably accumulated unnecessary import statements. Click "Expand" to learn how to efficiently batch import scripts to speed up performance and make your code look cleaner. One other approach is by using the MediaWiki:ImportJS.
If your JavaScript file has several lines of code that say importScript, importScriptPage, or importArticles, you may be able to combine them! By batch importing a collection of scripts with a single import, your JavaScript code will load faster and look cleaner. Consider the example below. On the left is an example of what your JavaScript file might currently look like. On the right is how you could improve that code.
Multiple imports — messy and slow One import — clean and efficient
importScriptPage('AjaxRC/code.js','dev');

importScript('MediaWiki:localScript.js');

importArticle({
  type: 'script',
  article: 'u:dev:FloatingToc/code.js'
});

importScriptPage('page1.js', 'wikiname');

importScriptPage('page2.js', 'wikiname');
importArticles({
    type: 'script',
    articles: [
        'u:dev:AjaxRC/code.js',
        'MediaWiki:localScript.js',
        'u:dev:FloatingToc/code.js',
        'u:wikiname:page1.js',
        'u:wikiname:page2.js'
    ]
});
Note: In this example, pay close attention to the placement of commas and other punctuation. For people who aren't familiar with programming (and even those who are!), a common mistake when writing code is to accidentally delete, forget, or misplace critical symbols like commas or quotation marks. This can cause a syntax error that breaks the code. Carefully follow the convention shown here when using importArticles.
But there's much more to importArticles than just this! For more examples and advanced usage, see the help page at Help:Including additional JavaScript and CSS.
