LSL HTTP server/beta

From Second Life Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The new http-in functions described on LSL http server are available on the preview grid for beta testing.

Where?
Aditi, the preview grid. Regions are named "Http In Sandbox n" where n is 1,2, or 3.
What viewer should I use?
Use a mono-compatible main grid viewer (version 1.21 or later), and have it log you into aditi. Shift-control-g at the login screen brings up the grid select dropdown. Aditi = preview grid, Agni = main grid.
But the viewer won't know about the new functions
When using a Mono-enabled viewer, all compilation is done server side. So make sure you are using a mono-enabled viewer and you will be able to compile a script with the new functions as long as you are in one of the http-in sandboxes. You do not need to have "Mono" checked (see this forum thread).
How do I report bugs?
Check this meta JIRA - SVC-3238. Existing issues for http-in are linked. Check the open issues to see if your bug is already listed. If so, consider commenting on that issue to add any insights you have. If not, create a new issue. Make sure you:
  • JIRA should be SVC
  • Title should start "http-in:"
  • Component "Scripts"
  • Affects version is unimportant
  • Please include a minimal repro of the bug. Pare down the code to the minimum necessary to exhibit the issue.
  • Link your issue "Relates to" SVC-3238

Several resources are available
  • Use the discussion tab for this page to ask questions about the beta
  • If you are a member of secondlifescripters@lists.secondlife.com you can post a question.
