good. another way is to use 'custom web server' software to pass incoming message to minetest (easily written in any language c++, rust,.. or nodejs) using minetest http_api. I made an example using my 'basic_robot' mod - you can write text in browser like: "http://address/your command"
and this almost instantly shows up in game: https://github.com/ac-minetest/basic_robot/tree/master/scripts/http/webcommands

I wonder if it might be possible to use IPC with a named pipe or a non-blocking socket on Linux to communicate with the Minetest mods. That would probably be the most seamless and efficient, since it doesn't require opening and closing temporary files (which works, but is kind of a kludge).
