Using a website to control a MaxMSP

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone used a website to control or send messages, bang, or trigger a max patch before. I’m currently building a website and I was wondering how I would go about building javascript based website to communicate with max/msp.

In searching for this the closest solution I found is this forum post: http://www.cycling74.com/forums/topic.php?id=17328

Anyone know how I would go about to set up a server or have Max communicate with a website via PHP, Ajax, VNC or converting the JSON of a Maxpatch into a website.

Ultimately I want to just the user input on a website to control the behaviors of a maxpatch.

Let me know if there is a probable solution.

Thanks!!

jit.uldl may be useful.

You can also have some fun with the post function in PHP from the jweb object. So you could have a little fun posting to your own MySQL.

I’m having good results with the following:

Server (inside max)
Net.loadbang.web + JavaScript json parser/formatter

Clientside
Jquery – using Ajax/json

The nice thing is that I have the same js object to represent the patch state clientside and serverside. to communicate I just send or parse a json string.

I also looked at doing it with node.js running the sever and communicating with max over osc. This had potential but the above solution seemed simpler
