Hey all — I haven't been able to find any info about anyone else trying to do this, and I have no idea how to do it myself. I'm trying to set up a thing so the player can click a link and physically print the last story passage — like, to an actual printer. Does anyone have any experience doing this? 

My thoughts right now are that I'd have to set it so that it calls up a javascript function when the link is clicked, but other than that, I'm pretty lost. 

Thank you! literally any help would be very appreciated.

You can use window.print(), which will open the browser's print UI for the user.

Try something like this:

Blah blah blah.

(link-repeat: 'Print this page!')[\
    (set: _dummy to print())\

Or this:

Blah blah blah.

(link-repeat: 'Print this page!')[\

This may not work in <iframes> or embedded content, such as on itch.io.
