Making HTTP requests via Nasal is now extensively documented at: http://wiki.flightgear.org/Howto:Making ... from_Nasal

One of the FSEconomy developers got in touch with us and is currently making some first tests trying to connect FG to FSEconomy via Nasal using the tutorial.

Hi,
i recently received a pm and a comment to the bug tracker...

Sorry to say: I have given up on this, i think the script wasnt even part of the backup when i moved to another host.

I will update the first post and mark it as canceled

Too bad. I'll bet someone else will try something similar later though.

It would be possible to add some kind of central web-service on top of this by using Nasal HTTP bindings.

That seems like a good idea. Less duplicate efforts. ;)

Hi,

I am going to bring this thread back to life. I personally think this would be a GREAT idea to see in flightgear! I would definitely contribute by paying some money if it helped to make this possible. Hope this gets added!
Regards,

Script has been lost while changing host and wont be continued.

So you will have to rewrite it yourself.
Do it if you want.... assuming you know a coding language, and how to compile FlightGear from source.

you don't need to know much about coding, or even building from source, for this - it's really more about HTML/JavaScript and some Nasal glue code.
The approach detailed in the article is also unnecessarily complex these days, because Nasal can directly make http requests, but also because of Torsten's mongoose work, which supports WebSockets.
Somebody familiar with a CMS like wordpress or drupal should be able to come up with a simple system within 1-2 days of spare time hacking, using the code snippets that can be found on the wiki.
Personally, I am not the slightest bit interested in MP or VAs, so I am really unlikely to help with this, beyond posting pointers - but otherwise it's really straightforward stuff

you really only need a very simple CMS (like wordpress), so that you can hook up its database to some kind of webservice, the nasal module would be trivial to write, and would probbaly become pretty popular among MP/VA players

Why was this project canceled? It sounds like a great idea!

I just didnt have the time + i moved to DCS.
I still dont play FG that often, but coding such a feature would be fun...

Give me 1-2 weeks to prepare a draft.

Okay, sounds good. I really hope that you will consider adding this feature to FlightGear. Looking forward to seeing your draft!
