there is a MEL/Python command in Maya called commandPort, which makes it possible to control Maya from other application or even other workstation via port. Can we do the same with Octane? I could for example write my application in Python and then just send Lua commands via port to Octane.
I can imagine that such port communication could be a part of core Lua functionality (which is the case in Python), but then we need something like eval-function to execute commands as text inside of the running Lua instance. It would be great to have something like Maya's mel.eval() for Octane. I'm not a Lua programmer and if I search in Lua API Browser for ports or script evaluations I get only 'scriptExecuteType'., but it does not really answer my question.
