Hi all!

I've got a master/slave add-in setup and I'm trying to pass some data down to the slave when registering it, a little JSON let's suppose.

What is the cleanest way to do that?

Thanks,
Iustin

I vote for an environment variable.

Hello Govert,

That is an amazing recommendation, I haven't thought of it but it will fit my needs perfectly. Thank you for your input!

Hi Lustin

If you want to pass more data between the two you can use a pub sub framework such as zeromq. It has a little bit of setup, but will allow realtime two way messaging.

Thanks

Craig.
