I’m wondering if I can use Rhino + Grasshopper (via command line or scripting) as backend for a web application. The idea is to have the different GH parameters in the web, play with them and generate a 3D preview to see if the model is how the user wants.
This will involve a Windows server with a REST application which will start the workflow in the server itself. The steps would be:
- Invoke the program opening
- Retrieve parameters
- Open GH
- Set the GH script parameters with the given parameters value
- Generate / Export somehow the generated model so it can be viewed on the web application.
I was reading a little, and the things I don’t know how to do is to open GH from Rhino and set te parameters. Do you think it can be done?
Thanks in advance!
