http requests

Post by proicop »

Hello,
I would like to send http request from my mod to some external code on localhost over http. Is that possible? I cant figure out how to inject the lua http library into the game since most of them end up depending on non lua code that I don't think is possible to inject into the game.

Is there http library written in pure lua that I can inject? How do mods like Clusterio communicate?

What do you mean by server commands?

Server side scripts that work with file that game writes and process them accordingly.
And I'd guess it uses rcon to send info back to game somehow since write file is only output.
