Talk to Mudlet with

Project description

Assume you are really annoyed with Lua and want to use a reasonable scripting language. Say, Python.

This module lets you do that.

It establishes a bidirectional link between Mudlet/Lua and Python and exchanges structured messages between the two.

Mudlet can do HTTP requests in the background, so we send a “long poll” PUSH request to the Python server. The reply contains the incoming messages (as a JSON array).

There are a couple of optimizations to be had:

  • if “httpGET” is available, we use that instead of an empty PUSH.

  • if the platform supports Unix FIFO nodes in the file system, we use that for sending to Python, as that’s faster and less expensive than a HTTP request per message.

The only required parameter on the Mudlet side is the port number.

Errors / exceptions are generally propagated to the caller.
