Pulling external data into a PS script?

Postby vgkids » Sat Jul 24, 2010 6:46 pm

I'd like to make use of some data on my webserver in my PS javascripts- has anyone bridged that gap before? It seems plausible, but I'm not quite sure where to start.

Seems like XMLHttpRequest might be the key, but this is definitely a bit outside my experience and if anyone has any thoughts, I'm all ears.

Take a look at this thread from awhile back. The example shows how to make a socket request over HTTP and read the response. I think that is the core of what you are wanting to do.
