    Opinions - LrSocket or LrHttp with polling?

    AdamHudsonNall

      I am developing a plugin that requires two way communication with Lightroom and my external API.

       

      Does anyone have any opinions based on experience of the various communication protocols?

       

      I have read the forums, researched the SDK, and even created some proof of concept plugins for testing. I am seeking opinions based on real world experience with the various communication protocols (writing to external file, LrHttp, LrSocket) and how they performed.

       

      My testing using LrSocket communication works OK but I can see where issues around resiliency may arise. I am considering weather using LrHttp with polling would be a more "durable" / less error prone method of communication.

       

      Thanks for your thoughts!
