Writing your own telnet commands

An example module that adds a command to the telnet console:

module:set_global();
 
local env = module:shared("/*/admin_telnet/env");
 
env.mycommands = {} -- a table to keep your commands in
 
function env.mycommands:hello()
  return "Hello, World!";
end

With this saved in a mod_my_telnet_command.lua and loaded you should be able to call this command like so:

mycommands:hello()
| OK: Hello, World!

It is also possible to output additional data and indicate success or failure:

function env.mycommands:sayhi(name)
  if name then
    self.session.print("Hi, " .. name);
    return true, "Said hi"; -- Boolean true for success, and a status
  else
    return false, "You didn't tell me your name :("
  end
end
