Creating the "flightplans" folder

If you used a custom datadir, then go to it.

If you used the default datadir, then it should be in the folder stated below:




~/Library/Application Support/Avian



Once you have opened this folder, create a new folder called flightplans in it.


Go inside this folder, and create a new file with any name you want. Make sure it ends in .lua

For this example, let's make a new file called test.lua

Write flightplan code in new file

Refer to other pages to learn how to write flightplan code.

For this example, we will make code that returns Hello, World!

Code is shown below:

function hello_world ()
    return "Hello, World!"

Run flightplan from wallet

First, open your wallet with flightplans enabled (shortcut or via terminal)

Go to Help -> Debug -> Console

To run the function hello_world in the file called test.lua, type the following command:

call_flightplan test hello_world

The format of the RPC call is below:

call_flightplan <file name> <function name> <args>
