Webserver

Top  Previous  Next

Girder has a built in web server that allows you to access Girder with a regular browser from any computer on the network. The web server can be password protected and SSL encrypted. If Girder is behind a home router (like a cable box) it might still be possible to reach Girder from the internet if you set the port forward in your cable modem or router.

 

The web pages allow for Lua script to be used server side. This was you can create your very own dynamic web pages!

 

The web server also supports websockets for fast two way communications. This can be very useful for device manager updates.

 

An example webpage would be:

 

<html>

<head>

 <title>Example Webpage</title>

</head>

<body>

 <h1>Example Girder webpage</h1>

 The hostname you used to get this page was: <% printgetHost() ) %>

</body>

</html>
