Project Description

For many many years, OBS uses Cookies for authentication purposes. This is not really web application friendly and kind of insecure. For instance, all applications on * domain that get a web request when you are logged into OBS, they get your authentication credentials too. Secondly, if you want to write a 3rd party tool, you can't just use another domain and do random API requests due to this legacy authentication method.

Solution is to wrap authentication into a simple proxy that will transform,

api_call(token, api_param1, api_param2) into api_call(api_param1, api_param2) + Cookie header and pass it onto the OBS API server.

Goal for this Hackweek

Make a proxy to API server ( that will proxy SPA API calls into legacy ones with Cookie authentication.

For bonus points, a login and logout service too.


Since it's for the web, we could use NodeJS add-emoji Ideally, there should be no npm dependencies here.
