"Left Sidebar": Harlowe (only v2.1.0 or later)#


Harlowe v2.1.0 or later includes a built-in named hook named ?Sidebar. When combined with the (append:) macro, dynamic content can be added to the left, blank area containing the default Undo and Redo links. A "footer" tagged passage is used to update the dynamic content after each passage transition, and CSS is used to resize and position the existing <tw-sidebar> element.
