I have a Hype project, where a user moves and turns (kind of divination) cards on the screen.
At a certain moment the user can click a button to make a screenshot (with html2canvas).
The screenshot is sent to a server, where - with the help of PHP - it is saved as a file.
(and then later included in a generated pdf file, which the user can download and save, to keep records, what s/he has done with the cards).
I am confident I can do all of that
But I need a method to test very quickly.
When I hit cmd+return to see the hype project in a browser, Hype is using a built-in browser at http://127.0.0.1:59946/
But this is not where my php files are.
So I need to export the project to a folder within my local test web server, and then call the local website to see if it works - these are several steps, instead of one.
What I want: my test webserver is used when I hit cmd-return!
I see two possible solutions:
(1) an option in Hype, where I can give a location (where to save the files) and a local webserver URL, so Hype can use these instead of the built-in web server – this option is more work for Tumult – or
(2) knowledge, where Hype stores the preview files. If I could store my PHP files “nearby”, then I can set up a local web server (I use MAMP), pointing to these files. The preview process stores the preview files there, and I hit “reload” in a browser showing these files – this option I could use immediately (also I have a second click to “reload” the browser with my local web server URL --.
Where is the http://127.0.0.1:59946/preview folder in the system?
Can I just create a new folder http://127.0.0.1:59946/preview/myphpfiles?
Then I could have my local webserver pointing to /preview and the hype buttons (as an example) could invoke php scripts on (e.g.) …/myphpfiles/phpscript.php
Thank you for all hints!
