What are the plans for being able to run the server within UXP? Is that in any roadmap?
Do you mean UXP as a WebSocket server?
I mean both. I want websocket server and also the possibility to serve files from localhost.
Having a WebView host local HTML/JS files would be very, very nice indeed…
Exactly… now I have to run external process and I can’t even pass parameters to it (so far). I think with server in UXP I could eliminate one more scripting context making it simpler.
I have been hoping for this as well.
Webview hosting local HTML should be available with
That sounds like moving in right direction. One of my clients has a plugin to show instructions for designers and sometimes it comes as a PDF or HTML file with pictures… so it could address at least this need.
Will be there some option to inject custom JS from UXP into webview? I used inject JS to open image in PS when you click image in an instruction HTML file.
what great news, @indranil , when will it be available? Because if I’m not mistaken, we are currently at version 7.3. Also, is it possible to see a roadmap somewhere?
This should be availabe with
UXP v8.0 so you should see this in Photoshop probably around April…though don’t quote me on that !
