FS#2047 - Inserting images/screenshots from buffer

Good if adding functional about easy way for insert screenshots to task

Project Manager

Found this:

An implementation with html5 canvas could work like this:

  1. User press [print key] which stores a screenshot into buffer (at least on windows)
  2. set focus on a "drop image here"-area on the flyspray new/edit task and press CTRL-V for inserting the screenshot image buffer.
  3. some javascript painting/cutting tools for making annotations and cropping of the region of interest in the screenshot.
  4. javascript form handling send the modified screenshot with the task form or task comment submit. (using the existing file form fields, so no change serverside needed)

The whole solution is just javascript. It will not be in flyspray1.0.
But maybe someone writes it as extension.

On mobile devices the taking of screenshots and adding it to a form field is a bit easier than on a desktop, because it guides the user to the place of the last screenshot.
On desktop the user opens a photo editing program like gimp or photoshop, ctrl-v, saves as image in a webformat(jpg,png,gif), goes back to browser, browses the stored image on his folders...

Other solutions:

  • Browser plugins that do screenshots
  • webrtc(?)

I´m using one of the latest versions from Git and there it is possible to paste (ctrl-v) images from Clipboard unsing ckeditor 4.4.7.
But when i insert too big or too much Pictures i get an " Failed! (Data too long for column 'comment_text' at row 1)"


Available keyboard shortcuts
