Recover Old Squiffy

Hello! Not at all a squiffy expert but a while back, I deleted a story I was working on the browser. Is there any way to recover it?


Same request here. There's a branching narrative I've already published and wish to continue working on from time to time. I lost my Squiffy code last month and wish to recover it from the games.


If you've deleted a story, there's probably no way to get it back.

If you've got the published form but not the source file, most of the data is still in there; but getting it back to its original form may be difficult. I think I wrote a Perl script to do it for someone a while back, but I can't find it now. I'll see if I can throw something together again when I've got a decent amount of work done for today. (Edit: it might have been Javascript; in which case one of my previous posts here might contain a link)

This might help: https://angelverse.mrangel.info/desquiff.html

It's not particularly polished, but could be a starting point. If there's any bits that don't work properly, let me know what it comes out as, and what it should be.

Hope that helps.


That... That... that actually works, mrangel. I'm shaking! I don't know what to say.


I don't want curiosity to detract from the deep awe and gratitude I wish to covey, but what makes @clear harder to reverse than other complicated elements?

I made this to help someone decompile a particular game. So I looked at their story.js, at all the data that was in there, and worked out what the original Squiffy code for it would have been.
Anything that wasn't in that game might not be included.

I'm adding @clear now, it looks pretty simple.
If there's anything else missing, just let me know. Preferably with an example of what it should look like in the squiffy code, and what it looks like in story.js.


No! It spat my game out instantly looking exactly like the last time I saw it! It's a pretty tangled branching narrative that my students play through, and then have the opportunity to add branches if they're able. If anybody finds little glitches it will be no problem to fix. I had been sad that I'd have to either discontinue or restart that project, but now my students can keep right on expanding it to infinity! Thank you so much!
