Is it possible to integrate and run Poker Mavens on Wix?

Postby nickers » Tue Jul 05, 2016 5:49 pm

I do not have very much knowledge in HTML or PHP, I'm just curious if I could use a service like Wix and integrate the Poker Mavens software and control it. the only thing they have on their "app section" is HTML iFrame/embed. I'm already thinking that wouldn't be enough. I'm just confused on how exactly you would integrate it onto a site, would you control the software via the site HTML with the API? Or would you be controlling it on the windows server that you embed onto the site?

Sorry if I sound like an idiot, I just have no idea where to start.

The poker software itself has to be installed on a Windows machine in which you have root/admin access to. But you can use almost any web site as your front end if you just want to place an iframe there that points to the poker server URL. However, to do anything fancy with the Poker Mavens API, you need a server-side scripting ability such as PHP which will make http calls back to the poker server. This cannot be done with client-side Javascript because that would expose the API password.

Thanks for the insight, would learning say this course be sufficient to be able to understand how to use PHP for PM?

how much would I really need to learn to use the API easily?

It would probably be a good start if you understand the basic concepts of computer programming (variables, arrays, loops, conditional statements, file i/o, etc). After that, check out the API docs and PHP examples I have here:

http://www.briggsoft.com/docs/pmavens/API_Examples.htm

You can experiment with the API (even in the free trial version) by issuing one command at a time directly in your browser's address bar and see the results returned without writing any code. Then you could imagine writing code that issues those commands for you and acts on the results returned accordingly.
