hURL 1.0 released

Post by softwarefailure »


Yes, Airsoft Softwair, the hardest working men in code business, did it again! This time we proudly present hURL - the ultimate multi-protocol data transfer plugin for Hollywood. Based on curl, hURL supports an incredibly wide range of transfer protocols, e.g. DICT, FILE, FTP, FTPS, Gopher, HTTP, HTTPS, IMAP, IMAPS, LDAP, LDAPS, POP3, POP3S, RTMP, RTSP, SCP, SFTP, SMB, SMBS, SMTP, SMTPS, Telnet and TFTP. Furthermore, hURL supports SSL certificates, HTTP POST, HTTP PUT, FTP uploading, HTTP form based upload, proxies, HTTP/2, cookies, user+password authentication (Basic, Plain, Digest, CRAM-MD5, NTLM, Negotiate and Kerberos), file transfer resume, proxy tunneling and more. It really is the ultimate data transfer engine for Hollywood, leaving nothing to be desired!

There are two ways of using hURL: There is a high-level interface that can directly hook itself into Hollywood's network library, enhancing it with hURL functionality like SSL/TLS support. This makes it possible to use Hollywood commands like DownloadFile() to download files using custom protocols that Hollywood itself doesn't support, e.g. SSL/TLS.

Another way of using hURL is the low-level interface: This interface allows you to access the curl API directly from Hollywood scripts. This is extremely powerful because it allows you to access hundreds of different curl options, making it possible to fine-tune hURL to your specific needs. Just to give you an idea of how powerful hURL is: it contains over 500 (!) commands to fulfil all your data transfer needs!

Finally, hURL comes, as usual for Hollywood plugins, with extensive documentation in various formats like PDF (over 300 pages!), HTML, AmigaGuide, and CHM that contains detailed descriptions about all functions and methods offered by the plugin.

All of this makes hURL the ultimate data transfer tool for Hollywood that contains everything you need to send and receive data via almost any transfer protocol on the planet.

hURL is now available for free download from the official Hollywood portal. Thanks to Hollywood's cross-platform plugin system versions for AmigaOS3 (m68k), AmigaOS 4, MorphOS, Linux (ppc, arm, x86, x64), Mac OS (ppc, x86, x64), Windows (x86, x64) and Android (arm, arm64) are provided.

Note that on AmigaOS and compatibles, AmiSSL 4.x is required by hURL. Since this isn't available in a native MorphOS version yet, you can just use the 68k version of AmiSSL 4 on MorphOS. It has been verified to work fine with hURL.

This release was brought to you by Airsoft Softwair, the hardest working men in code business.

@Juan Carlos
It's possible but to make a browser you need to be able to represent links in your GUI. FTP should be no problem though.
I'm on registered MorphOS using FlowStudio.

You mean a browser as in Chrome? Sorry, but that extends the scope of this plugin and Hollywood :) An FTP client should be possible, though...

Whats the reason you want to do a"browser"
Creating from scratch, as said, is by far beyond this plugin, that plugin ONLY cover the connextion part

Under most cases RapaGui,s htlm class is covering most need:s

Andreas, why you haven't did all that stuff at least ten years ago, when I was a single and I had much much more time for Amiga?! :D
