TimelyGreetingPlugin (or 'TimelyGreeting' in use) is a CeryleWikiPlugin that returns a timely greeting based on either server time or a provided timezone.

Generates a "Good morning!", "Good afternoon!", "Good evening!", or "Good night!" depending on the current time at the timezone of the server or a provided timezone. If the provided timezone cannot be understood, returns a string based on GMT.

While subjective, the time boundaries used by this plugin are:

  • Morning: 3am until 12am (0300-1159)
  • Afternoon: 12pm until 6pm (1200-1759)
  • Evening: 6pm until 9pm (1800-2059)
  • Night: 9pm until 3am (2100-0259)

This plugin is still relatively untested across time zones. Any bugs, please report to MurrayAltheim.


timezone = 'tzid'
set the timezone to the provided string. The default will be the timezone of the server
verbose = 'yes' | 'no'
also show time and timezone
format = 'short' | 'medium' | 'long'
when in verbose mode, selects the format used for display of the time
morning = 'phrase'
set the "Good morning!" string to the provided value
afternoon = 'phrase'
set the "Good afternoon!" string to the provided value
evening = 'phrase'
set the "Good evening!" string to the provided value
night = 'phrase'
set the "Good night!" string to the provided value (because in English "Good night" is considered a good-bye, the default might need to be altered).
