# Limitations & missing features
Not all features of LINE are supported by the LINE Chrome extension on which this bridge relies, and not all Matrix features are available in LINE. This section documents all known features missing from LINE that this bridge cannot provide.
## Missing from LINE
* Typing notifications
* Message edits
* Formatted messages
* Presence
* Timestamped read receipts
* Read receipts between users other than yourself
* Identity of who read a message in a multi-user chat
## Missing from LINE on Chrome
* Unlimited message history
* Messages that are very old may not be available in LINE on Chrome at all, even after a full sync
* Voice/video calls
* No notification is sent when a call begins
* When a call ends, an automated message of "Your OS version doesn't support this feature" is sent as an ordinary text message from the user who began the call
* Message redaction (delete/unsend)
* But messages unsent from other LINE clients do disappear from LINE on Chrome
* Replies
* Appear as ordinary messages
* Mentions
* Appear as ordinary text
* Audio message sending
* But audio messages can be received
* Location sending
* But locations can be received

## Missing from matrix-puppeteer-line
* TODO
<sup>[1]</sup> Requires [MSC2409](https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-doc/pull/2409). Without it, the bridge will always view incoming LINE messages on your behalf.
<sup>[2]</sup> LINE read receipts may be bridged later than they actually occur. The more unread chats there are, the longer this delay will be.

# Minimum Requirements
* Python 3.8
* Node 10.18.1
* xdotool
* yarn 1.22.x
# Optional Requirements
* `xdotool` - required for reliably running the Puppeteer module headless in a background X server. See [puppet/README.md](puppet/README.md)
# Initial setup
## Puppeteer module
1. Download the .crx file of the [LINE Chrome extension](https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/line/ophjlpahpchlmihnnnihgmmeilfjmjjc) (current version: 2.4.4)
* The recommended way of doing this is with the [CRX Extractor/Downloader](https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/crx-extractordownloader/ajkhmmldknmfjnmeedkbkkojgobmljda) extension for Chrome/Chromium. Simply install that extension in a Chrome/Chromium instance of your choice, then navigate to the Web Store page for the LINE extension, click the "CRX" button in the toolbar, and select "Download as CRX"
1. Download a .crx or .zip file of the [LINE Chrome extension](https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/line/ophjlpahpchlmihnnnihgmmeilfjmjjc) (current version: 2.4.5)
* The recommended way of doing this is with the [CRX Extractor/Downloader](https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/crx-extractordownloader/ajkhmmldknmfjnmeedkbkkojgobmljda) extension for Chrome/Chromium. Simply install that extension in a Chrome/Chromium instance of your choice, then navigate to the Web Store page for the LINE extension, click the "CRX" button in the toolbar, and select "Download as ZIP"
1. Extract the downloaded .crx file to `puppet/extension_files`
* This can be done with `unzip *.crx -d puppet/extension_files`, or with a GUI tool like GNOME File Roller
* This can be done with `unzip <*.crx|*.zip> -d puppet/extension_files`, or with a GUI tool like GNOME File Roller
1. `cd` to the `puppet` directory and run `yarn --production`
1. Run `node prep_helper.js` to open the version of Chrome downloaded by Puppeteer, and click on the LINE icon next to the URL bar
1. Once the LINE popup appears, press F12 to show DevTools, which will reveal the LINE extension's UUID

# Upgrading
Simply `git pull` or `git rebase` the latest changes, and rerun any installation commands (`yarn --production`, `pip install -Ur ...`).
To upgrade the LINE extension used by Puppeteer, simply download and extract the latest .crx in the same location as for initial setup.

`cycle_delay` specifies the period (in milliseconds) at which Puppeteer should view chats to check on their read receipts. Only chats with messages that haven't been fully read need to be checked.
### `xdotool`
Set `use_xdotool` to `true` to allow the Node process to manipulate the mouse cursor of the X server it runs in. Requires the `xdotool` utility to be installed. Highly recommended, especially when running in a virtual X server. Its default value is `false` so that running in a non-virtual X server won't interfere with a real mouse cursor.
