eventghost response to external app

Post by bryanchicken » Tue Dec 15, 2009 4:15 pm

sorry, the title doesn't really explain what i mean very well.

I'm wondering if its possible to get eventghost to return values to an external calling program/webpage. So i can store the status of various things inside EG and view them externally.

Say for instance i set a global variable in a python script within eventghost. Is there anyway i can get the value of that variable out of eventghost?

I think ideally i'd want the calling "app" to be a webpage. Is there anyway to get values out of eventghost using the webserver?

I hope that makes sense, as i'm having trouble wording it.

typical. After much searching with the wrong words and not finding anything i accidentally happen across the "advanced webserver plugin (http://www.eventghost.org/forum/viewtop ... rver#p8734 if anyone else is looking) which seems to be exactly what i want.
