For my needs, I’m looking for a way to do the following:
• Run a Web app on my existing server; it already has a domain name.
• On device 1, which is a computer, run a Xojo desktop app. Also, connect to the web app using a browser (or within the desktop app?).
• On device 2, connect to the same web app.
• Be able to use the session of the web app of device 2 to send a message to the other session (which runs on device 1); the message is then relayed to the app on device 1.
In the end, I could control my Xojo app on device 1 from my website on device 2.
The part I don’t get is how to send the message from the web app to the desktop app. I’d have to either escape the browser’s sandbox (which is a bad thing in the first place) or have the desktop app always listening to the web app (how would I do that?).
Is something like this doable?
