Web tools in Scilab 6.1

Leverage the new functions for server communication, based on the well known web protocol HTTPS:

  • GET to simply get data from remote location
  • POST to exchange data with the server through the request 

It enables seemless exchanges with remote servers, by connecting to their API (i.e. the interface they provide to the outside). Thus connecting directly to their data layer, through exchange standards such as JSON (with the functions fromJSON and toJSON).

It provides an efficient way to access algotithms and models shared on Scilab Cloud
