How are you guys doing? Fine, hopefully.
I’ll start by describing what I have done already, and what want to accomplish:
I have a website, which is basically an admin panel, built using Laravel framework. What I want to do is create an .exe that can connect to my website, however, I want to store some private info using the exeoutput. To make it clear:
- Some informations can be stored on my server;
- Some informations I wish to store it locally, on the user’s PC.
Things I already tried (no success, since they work with HTTP protocol):
The one thing I got some success was a < form> with action to “ghe://heserver”, it works when the page is shown by acessing my website from the .exe but I don’t want to rely on this “method”;
Any suggestion for my problem? Thanks in advance.
ghe://heserver lets you point to compiled PHP scripts in the EXE, but if you want to point to your website, why not using http://yourwebsite in your form?
If you want to download some data from your website, and then display it in the EXE browser, cURL will work fine. Just create a compiled script that runs cURL (or even file_get_contents) to retrieve data from your website, and display the result in the browser.
Thanks for the quick reply!
Well, I want to get data stored in the .exe, not from my website, since I want to store sensitive information within the .exe. Let’s say I have a customer’s name and his credit card number. I won’t have problem storing the customer’s name on my website, but I intend to store his credit card number on the .exe, as a local info, which means, this data will only be acessible by connecting with the same PC. As I said earlier, my website runs with Laravel, I didn’t mention the version, which is 4.2, and requires PHP 5.4, so I can’t really compile it with ExeOutput right now (cheers to the upcoming new version!).
My initial idea about this stuff is: I’d do a request to the .exe, retrieving stuffs I need, and display it from my website.
I can do a post to “ghe:/heserver” only when I open my website from the .exe (if I do it from a normal browser, like Chrome or Firefox, it’s like the page don’t exist). Maybe I can simulate a post from PHP, using headers and stuff? I’ll keep looking for a solution to my needs.
