OSDash server authentication is here!
Goce and Sean have set up the server for OSDash, as you all know. If you want an account on it, PM myself or Goce or Optikalfx (Sean) to request it.
In addition, there has been a need for a user ID access and authentication so that services are informed of the appropriate settings for each user. Sean came up with a solution for this problem and sent me an email about it. Here's what he says.
So I've made 3 apps for OS Dash so far.
API key Generator
APP Key Generator
Basically how it works, a developer will include a server.php file I've made. And they have access to a Class called OSdash. You construct that class with your mp3car username, password, api key, and application key. From that, a session is created on success so we know the user was successfully authenticated.
Every developer needs an api key
Every application needs an application key.
You can use the 2 apps I've made to get these items.
In both cases you need a forum username and password.
You can play with the auth object here
When you get a success you will be shown a dump of the os dash output
I made a wiki on all of this here
