API and other Development
by mathhulk (Administrator) on March 12th, 2017
As you may or may not have noticed, I haven't really been posting to the blog very often. This is due to the fact that I am constantly busy with other projects and schoolwork. However, be sure to check the announcements page for the most recent updates, as I am sure to announce almost everything that is done there. Anyways, lets get right into today's blog post.
I have been doing quite a few back-end projects lately, and quite a few of them have required user management or authentication systems. Some of these projects include ab-web-addon and Artex Development Dashboard. Creating new systems and having to have each user create new accounts became a pain, so I decided to make an easy-to-use developer API for myself, while also releasing it for public use.
The developer API allows developers and other visitors to make use of my user management system by giving them access to authenticating users externally. With this, developers can easily create applications that require a login without needing to make their own systems. For users, don't worry, as no private information is shared through the developer API. I am short on time as of right now, but don't worry, I'll be posting more content soon enough.
