Perspective HTML Injection

So... while doing some module debugging, I noticed Ignition trying to access a non-existent folder <install-directory>\data\modules\com.inductiveautomation.perspective\injectables.

After creating the folder manually, Ignition then tried to access:


And what do you know, any HTML you put in these files will be directly loaded in the DOM of all Perspective sessions :man_shrugging: .


PS: Please don't send the hit squad :upside_down_face: .


Oh this is gonna be fun !

edit: It's been 11h and we still haven't heard from Victor.
I'm guessing he's currently being held in custody for of all the server fires in his area.


TL;DR: This has been possible forever. You're certainly allowed to do it (we can't stop you) but I'll present the following caveats as reasons we haven't and won't document this:

  1. You can completely break Perspective, pretty easily, with this
  2. We don't want you to have to know HTML or JS to develop in Perspective
  3. We don't want people doing silly stuff like trying to dynamically modify these
  4. Anything you do use this for should be considered unsupported. If we ever broke this functionality, it would likely be because we offered a supported, first-party solution, so I wouldn't necessarily worry about it dropping out from underneath you, but also, don't even think about contacting support if you do use this and something goes wrong.

I had exams xd

Does look interesting though. could be usefull to track some general things on every page. Tho it being loaded everywhere is not super versatile

Yea, right...
You don't wanna say IA orange clockworked you for a week somewhere in a damp basement, I get it.

xD It was AI actual not IA :stuck_out_tongue: im following a course for AI (artifical intellengce)

Nope. Unfortunately, AI doesn't stand for Actual Intelligence. :rofl:

Well for many specific applications AI is a lot smarter than us.
But yes the all purpose general super AI isnt there yet
