The NetworkTools plugin lets you send and receive data over a network, or between applications on a single computer.

HTTP Server patch

  • Receives HTTP requests. You can use commands encoded in the URL and query parameters to control your composition from another application or another computer.
  • Can receive bytes of arbitrary data in the POST body. (Note: Kineme DataTools is required to use this feature.)
  • Handles IPv6, just in case.

HTTP Query patch

  • Fetches the result of HTTP and HTTPS queries. You can download information from the web or send signals to another composition with an HTTP Server patch.
  • Supports GET and POST.
  • Supports synchronous (blocking) and asynchronous (non-blocking) queries.
  • Can send bytes of arbitrary data in the POST body. (Requires Kineme DataTools.)

XML Parser patch

  • Parses an XML string into a structure.
  • Supports synchronous (blocking) and asynchronous (non-blocking) parsing.

Unsupported on OS X Mountain Lion (10.8)

Kineme products are not supported on OS X Mountain Lion (10.8).
