Great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I announce that I cease all development and activity in the programming universe indefinitely. My career has reached the turning point I was not expecting for at least another year, leaving me highly off guard and without laid-out plans for this hobby's continuity. I have begun a 5-year residency program in Neurosurgery which is clearly not compatible, time-wise, with programming.

I gave in all my passion for developing, and you gave me back your loyalty and trust, even when I did not deserve that much. Now it is the time for payback. I release all my present and past work as Open Source software, in the hope some talented developer will continue maintaining and expanding my vision of a modern, sleek forum software. The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.

I hereby thank Euan, kawaii, andrewjs18, Ben, Matt, Omar G., effone, Eric J., Devilshakerz, Wildcard, JordanMussi and all the other team members I have had the opportunity to work with when I was a MyBB team member. I thank Tomm M, my mentor, who inspired me to pick up coding with his piece-of-art plugins. And finally, I thank all of you MyBBoost subscribers who have helped me getting through my toughest university years economically.

Yours sincerely, Filippo

Hello. How can I add variables from other plugins?
Shade 25 May 2020
At the moment you can’t. I can add hooks for other plugins to integrate, but that will be up to each plugin’s author.

I would like to add a status TeamSpeak 3 and Steam.
TeamSpeak 3 -
Variables: {$client_online} {$client_icons}
Steam -
Variables: ? steamprofile_show_onlinestatus

You will have to speak with each plugin's author and ask them to integrate within Hovercards. Right now, they can't do anything about it as Hovercards is not optimized with suitable hooks.

Ok. I wrote.
