Re: [RFC] API

The best choice is an observer only API of course (while information leakage is still an issue here, data loss is not a risk), however, if data modification is a must the best options are an API that does not allow data removal or is sandboxed as such that the only data that the API can modify or d...

Re: [RFC] API

To start, I'm sorry I haven't actively replied for a while, I used to get emails whenever there was a new reply and for some reason I haven't got any mails in a long time so I assumed no one had said anything new :) (maybe I forgot to mark my last notification as read, and therefore wouldn't get new...

Re: [RFC] API

I've thought for a while about what you have said and what we discussed, and I'm still unsure. My vision of the API was a generic type of an API. A developer could write a single application, say an Android app, which can then be used with all boards (provided that the board has the API turned on an...

Re: [RFC] API

Note that Hardolaf is currently working on implementing Oauth into the phpBB authentication system and has gotten pretty far. I suggest you talk to him to see about somehow integrating it if possible. I did during the hackathon but iirc he was a bit against OAuth or negative against it for the API ...

Re: [RFC] API

I made a simple API implementation so far, to be able to test API calls more easily. https://github.com/galaxyAbstractor/phpbb3/commit/d9675f2fe1217de35c698cbcde910a162fa6d7f4#L3L-1 the hashing does make a bit extra code to implement but it turned out to not be very complicated after all. Also, peop...

Re: [RFC] API

To get closer into the details, how much security do we want? Do we want to make sure that the API key cannot be stolen when sending a request over HTTP? Should we just don't care much about it and let the user remove the API key if the user notices it's abused? I don't know how big problem it is wi...

Wouldn't that require the application to be registered to the board in some kind of way?

Re: [RFC] API

So I want to talk about authentication for a bit. The authentication system Users should never be required to give their username and password to applications because that would simply just be unsecure for a lot of reasons (password reuse, don't know which app is abusing your password if you use mul...

Re: [RFC] API

I've started looking into this and is planning and drawing up how it should work etc etc. Right now I'm testing around a bit, making a prototype to retrieve a list of all forums to get the idea of stuff. Forums can have sub-forums and so on. I've been thinking if we should offer the result as a simp...

Re: [RFC] Remove innermost quote

I've been thinking about this one for a bit and I think I might have a way to solve it when I looked at the code. Just a question, should the user be alerted that a quote that was too deep was removed, or just remove it automatically without mentioning it to the user? In my opinion, I would just hav...
