Well, with OAuth needing SSL, I’m out of luck with posting to Dropbox. Too bad…
I’m looking right now into using Amazon Web Services DynamoDB as a way to do this - it’s a NoSQL database with a RESTful interface (meaning you can talk to it with the Codea http.get stuff) - and it looks like for most hobby usage it will fall into the “Free” category. The one thing I can’t figure out is how to make it do a high score list - and I haven’t dug into it much.
Update: I have basic LUA-coded dropbox integration enabled with App folders (didn’t try PUBLIC ones yet). Once I simplify the code (and back it up to DropBox vs. GIT) I’ll post it.
@Simeon, Here’s an inconvienence - when loading a JPG via HTTP (and probably any image type), Codea converts it to an image(). The problem - I want to read the RAW JPG/GIF/PNG and copy it, but since I can’t seem to get to the RAW data, I can’t do a copy.
Is there some override that allows me to get the unconverted HTTP result for something like a JPG so I can do a copy?
