Hey, i wanted to make an app store for my os, i need to know how to send files to my app store server


Hey, Welcome to the forums!

To send a file with the http api, you can use something like the following code:
local data ="fileToSend.lua", "r").readAll()"", "file=" .. data)

I replaced the example URL with a web server, and the result is:

This is the body of the HTTP request.

The first line opens the file in read mode, and reads its contents.
The next line sends a POST request to the URL with the filecontents in the body.

Good luck with your OS, reply with a comment if my code dosent work, or if it works feel free to let me know too 😉.
It's not a data breach, it's a surprise backup.
