    Hi there,

    So I would like to be able to link my website with the server, allowing users to put information via the website and it interact with the Starbound server.

    Now there are two approaches:

    1. Using I/O and reading a file for specific commands to allow me to read information, and then via cron I can push data to this file. But I have noticed the only way to access the I/O lua library is to disable safe scripts, is there any better ways to do this?

    2. Using some kind of networking API (HTTP specifically) for making requests to and from an external server, but I spent hours trying to find this but looks like all the networking API's for Lua have been blocked.

    So from the above, can anyone help me out, or point me in the right direction?

    Thanks in advance,

    Probably best asked in the offical discord where Heathfire is there
