Hey! In this beginner series, we'll go over how to use WebSockets to control TouchDesigner with a website in real-time and vice versa. We'll cover step by step how to implement everything from scratch. We'll also cover some programming concepts assuming little to no experience with programming.
In this tutorial, we'll go over how to debug your newly hosted WebSocket server using WebSocket King: https://websocketking.com/. This allows us to easily test out sending and receiving WebSocket messages. We'll also look at how the TouchDesigner component that we're going to create is set up.
The final component that we'll create in TouchDesigner is available for download on my Patreon: https://patreon.com/tblankensmith.
