Set cloud lists from http?

So in the api Scratch uses to GET cloud vars, there's an object for lists. Is it possible to set those with http requests? (I don't know anything about requests so I couldn't test this myself)

Has anyone even created a var this way, or just set them? You'd probs also have to add the list to the project's JSON.

Interesting… but I barely know anything about HTTP requests.

Tell me the ajax request Scratch uses and I'll get right to it.

well I know the API to get vars is http://scratch.mit.edu/varserver/(project-id) (this is the one that includes the lists object)

The JS behind it has some other stuff that looks maybe relevant:
https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/(project-id)/cloud-data.js

Running on https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/64856068

var pid = 64856068;
var token = "INSERT TOKEN HERE"
createCookie("projectId", pid);
$.ajax({
    type: "POST",
    url: "/projects/purge-cloud-data/",
    data: {
        token: token
    },
    success: function(data) {console.log("SUCCESS");console.log(data);},
    async: false
});

As a quick clarification INSERT TOKEN HERE should be replaced with the token you find 2/3s down the page here. Not sure if it's the same for you and me so I've taken mine out, just in case.

Output for me:

[Warning] dat no async warning on Chrome
SUCCESS
Object {response: "ok"}
> Object {readyState: 4, responseText: "{'response': 'ok'}"...}

Wait I just looked up define purge, and it turns out it has something to do with abruptly removing something.. so did I just clear the cloud data on my project lol?

Meh, doesn't look like it has anything about setting cloud variables with JS.

The goal is to do stuff with cloud variables _just_ with JS ajax in the console, right?

That sounds easiest, but I know there's been talk of daemons constantly updating projects

Yep, it's all easiest to do by using an interval on a JS daemon sending a request to Scratch to set cloud data.

Yes, but some of us like to program in grown-up's languages :-/

JavaScript isn't a grown-up language?

I'm pulling an OP here: I'd lean toward JS simply because I know it better than Python or any C-derived language

Please don't necropost - that is, post on old topics. It can clog up the forums by bringing old, unused topics back to the top of the page. Thanks!
