I am developing a sidebar to monitor and manage external server (running locally). I need to execute several different bash commands (ex: ping, java .etc) from my sidebar for monitoring and management tasks. According to my understanding, I am working in the front end browser environment when I am performing tasks from the sidebar but I cannot run bash commands withing the browser environment. I am thinking about a function implemented in the server-side and use it from the frontend. I can implement a function in the node's .js file which is running on the server side and access it from the frontend side of the sidebar. Is this possible, or is there a other way to do this?
