4-byte big-endian format

  • HI guys, I’m trying to replicate this in make but I’m not sure of which functions to use. Can anyone help me out here?
    Message Length: struct.pack("!I", len(text.encode())) converts the length of the original message to a 4-byte big-endian integer.

My message length is 50 which is derived from using length({message_length})
Now i need to convert it to a 4-byte big-endian format which the result is something like this “\x00\x00\x00>”

How do I replicate this in make? Greatly appreciated if anyone could help me out

I have never seen any Make functions that can do this, but if there’s a way to do this in JavaScript then you may be able to call one of the external services to run the code off the Make platform and return the result.

Welcome to the Make community!

Looks like you’ll benefit from actually running some code, so that you can complete all of this in a single module.

Usually when I want to run JavaScript, I’ll use the

  • 0CodeKit “Run JavaScript JS-Code” module, or

  • Custom JS “Execute a Custom Javascript” module

There may be other integrations supporting other coding languages, but I’m only familiar with JS.
