HTML And JavaScript Viewer For Fusion Reactor Alert Emails

By on

Last week, I blogged about parsing Fusion Reactor Alert emails into a usable data structure. Over the weekend, I wanted to see if I could take that one step further and create an HTML and JavaScript (only) viewer for said Fusion Reactor Alerts. It took me a couple of hours on Friday and Sunday; but, I managed to get a JavaScript example on my GitHub project page that allows you to copy-paste your Fusion Reactor Alert emails into a Textarea input.

Once I had the FusionReactorAlert.cfc from last week, the hardest part of the JavaScript viewer was creating the user interface (UI). Parsing the textarea content (the copy-paste of your Fusion Reactor Alert email) was little more than a direct line-by-line translation of the ColdFusion component into an AngularJS factory. Luckily, JavaScript implements all of the regular expressions that I was using to parse the email content, including the Negative Look-Aheads.

I'll definitely be putting this to use at work. So, hopefully, I'll be able to fine-tune it and make it more usable. This first version was put together fairly fast, so it lacks polish and basic features like a "refresh" button. But, those shouldn't be too hard to add.

I believe in love. I believe in compassion. I believe in human rights. I believe that we can afford to give more of these gifts to the world around us because it costs us nothing to be decent and kind and understanding. And, I want you to know that when you land on this site, you are accepted for who you are, no matter how you identify, what truths you live, or whatever kind of goofy shit makes you feel alive! Rock on with your bad self!
