Random room name generation


Do you know where is the code which allows to generate room names located ?

Thank you,

I suppose js-utils extensions need to be installed in jitsi-meet/modules.

Thanks a lot for your reply.


This is where the random name generator is used: jitsi-meet/AbstractWelcomePage.js at deaf5ba6121b3bca02b96cc6cfd50924187ba345 · jitsi/jitsi-meet · GitHub, jitsi-meet/AbstractWelcomePage.js at deaf5ba6121b3bca02b96cc6cfd50924187ba345 · jitsi/jitsi-meet · GitHub

This is where the utils is imported into jitsi-meet: jitsi-meet/package.json at deaf5ba6121b3bca02b96cc6cfd50924187ba345 · jitsi/jitsi-meet · GitHub

How do I set my local js-utils, please?
I’ve downloaded to my server, changed package.json and ‘roomNameGenerator.js’ but there is no effect

You need to rebuild the javascript bundle. When you load jitsi-meet, with the developer tools open, check out the Network tab and you’ll see something called app.bundle.min.js being downloaded. The file is served from /usr/share/jitsi-meet/libs/. That bundle file needs to be recompiled with your changes. To do the compiling you need to check out the source (https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet) and build using make and put the resulting app.bundle.min.js file into your deployment, probably backing up your existing app.bundle.mins.js file before doing so just in case.

Thanks for your help, but I’m not a developer and I don’t know this process :frowning:
Thanks anyway.

Okay, let me know if you decide to try anyways and get blocked on something.

I appreciate your help, thank you so much

You go in modules then you execute “git clone https://github.com/jitsi/js-utils.git”.
But, we need to import the good one, so you need to change the import inside react/features/welcome/components/AbstractWelcomePage.js"

You replace this line :
import { generateRoomWithoutSeparator } from 'js-utils/random';

with this line :
import { generateRoomWithoutSeparator } from '../../../../modules/js-utils/random';

That should be good now.

PS : I didn’t change package.json. Normally js-utils should be automatically added inside.

Mine did not work after following your advise. Should I change the package.json then as well?

Not pretty sure how to recompile though.

@damencho how to disable random room name on android application?

If i’m not mistake you have to set false the GENERATE_ROOMNAMES_ON_WELCOME_PAGE

in /usr/share/jitsi-meet/interface_config.js.

Actually, i want to go with your way, if you can guide me to start I’d appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
