I just started developing in the Playdate SDK. I Find it very cool so far, but the only feature I am disappointed at not having is HTTP requests.
I am planning on making a weather app and a social media client. I know that you can use playdate.simulator.getURL(url) in the simulator, but I would like more functionality.
Here are some example of requests:
I'd be interested in being able to make HTTP requests as well.
In the absence of that... is there ANY networking functionality in Playdate SDK that I can get to? Like, can I create and connect a TCP socket (ok, some TLS would be great also; ) in C or Lua (or Rust?; )?
Have you considered implementing a gopher protocol client instead of HTTP requests? Since gopher is far more limited it eliminates a lot of security concerns. Plus it fits in with the Playdate's quirky nature in my opinion. Even one of Panic's founders embraces the gopher protocol!
