Websocket support?

+1 vote
Is there any easy way to acquire streaming data from MultiChain? Something like websockets etc?

I know that the MultiChain explorer taps directly in, but I'm wondering how it does that.

Not yet, but we're working on a simple notification mechanism that triggers a shell script.

Cool, that works; I can provide some wrappers to funnel it into a websocket. Let me know when you have a first version ready :) Thanks!
Any news on this?
It won't be in the next alpha, but is on the roadmap before MultiChain hits beta.
Just checking in to see if there is any news on this :)
Yes, the last couple of releases have a -walletnotify runtime parameter which allows an external command to be triggered when a new transaction comes in that is of specific interest to that node.
