I think this is possible and has been discussed, but I can not find it. Is there a format to execute scripts or commands using an application that can send HTTP GET or POST commands but not be using a web browser, either with the HTTP Server or HTTP Server (custom).
I don't think I can do it with the HTTP Custom because it uses AJAX and I don't know how I would format a request (and unfortunately, the documentation is fairly minimal) but I thought someone was already doing this with the simple HTTP server, embedding the user name and hte request in the URL of the GET.
I also know I can do this with Telnet using the TCP Clients object, and I may use that for my solution, but it is a little more limiting.
I'll explain my goal in case it provides any other thought.
I want to be able to drive my robot from my Android phone or an Android Wear smartwatch. I don't want to use the mobile interface, I want to have an embedded computer running EZ-Builder
performing a number of tasks, the remote interface just to give additional commands.
I have two applications that can easily send HTTP Get or Post requests and allow me to build custom interfaces. Anymote smart remote, and Tasker. With a Tasker plugin
I can also send Telnet requests, and I may wind up going in that direction if I am wrong that this can't be done with one of the web servers, but that isn't really the direction I wanted to go. (I think I could also do it using Eventghost to receive the HTTP requests and then send telnet requests to EZ-Builder
, and I am sure I could write a plugin
or do something with the SDK once my C# skills are up to speed, but I could swear this is existing functionality and I just can't find the right nomenclature for the command).
