ENiGMA½ BBS Software

ENiGMA½ BBS

ENiGMA½ is a modern BBS software with a nostalgic flair!

Features

Below are just some of the features ENiGMA½ supports out of the box:

  • Multi platform — Anywhere Node.js runs likely works (known to work under Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, OS X and Windows)
  • Unlimited multi node support (for all those BBS "callers"!)
  • Highly customizable via HJSON based configuration, menus, and themes in addition to JavaScript based mods
  • MCI support for lightbars, toggles, input areas, and so on plus many other other bells and whistles
  • Telnet, SSH, and both secure and non-secure WebSocket access built in! Additional servers are easy to implement
  • CP437 and UTF-8 output
  • SyncTERM style font and baud emulation support. Display PC/DOS and Amiga style artwork as it's intended! In general, ANSI-BBS / cterm.txt / bansi.txt are followed for expected BBS behavior.
  • Full SAUCE support.
  • Renegade style pipe color codes.
  • SQLite storage of users, message areas, etc.
  • Strong PBKDF2 backed password encryption.
  • Support for 2-Factor Authentication with One-Time-Passwords
  • Door support including common dropfile formats for legacy DOS doors. Built in BBSLink, DoorParty, Exodus and CombatNet support!
  • Structured Bunyan logging!
  • Message networks with FidoNet Type Network (FTN) + BinkleyTerm Style Outbound (BSO) message import/export. Messages Bases can also be exposed via Gopher, or NNTP!
  • Gazelle inspired File Bases including fast fully indexed full text search (FTS), #tags, and HTTP(S) temporary download URLs using a built in web server. Legacy X/Y/Z modem also supported!
  • Upload processor supporting FILE_ID.DIZ and NFO extraction, year estimation, and more!
  • ANSI support in the Full Screen Editor (FSE), file descriptions, etc.
  • Expandable achievement system — BBSing gamified!
  • A remote accessible Waiting For Caller (WFC)!

...and much much more. Please check out the issue tracker and feel free to request features (or contribute!) features!
