I'm hoping to use Blender and the BGE in a bit of an unusual way. I am hoping to create an interactive floor plan where I can click on desks and that will present information about the user.

Now I was hoping to store the data in an SQL database. Is this possible to do? I have even looked at the possibility of using Blender4Web to run in browser rather than having to run a seperate .exe each time.

If this may even be slightly possible are there any examples?

Many Thanks Jon

    $\begingroup$ If you are just using BGE then any Python code you can write will work, connecting/reading/writing to a database. As far as I can tell Blend4Web uses JavaScript in place of python and should be able to load extra javascript that would interface via http/s to a web service with a database behind it. But I cannot see any direct examples. $\endgroup$ – rob Jun 26 '18 at 11:38

As mentioned in the comment, the BGE has no build-in connection to databases.

You can use all Python libraries you like. Be aware you need to distribute them with your final application.

I know it is not a step-by-step instruction, but it is a big topic ... at a python forum.
