Re: [alpine-devel] using acf as a rest API
If you are trying to remotely access ACF, yes, you must manage the cookie right now. (There are command-line or programmable options if you are on the device) If you would like to submit a patch to allow http basic authentication, I would be okay with applying it. Thanks for your interest in ACF. If you need assistance in creating the patch, please let me know.

Subject: [alpine-devel] using acf as a rest API
I'm an OpenNebula developer and I had a chat today with Roger and he told me
about this project. As far as I've seen, it looks like a perfect match for many
things we want to do in our project.
One of these thing is to provide our users with a virtual router that
autoconfigures itself matching the OpenNebula configuration and does things
like: dns server, dhcp server, etc...
So, my question here is, I'd like to call some acf funcionalities from inside a
pogram (namely reconfigure dnsmasq and restart the service), so far I've seen
the only way to do this programmatically is to log-in with curl for instance,
get the cookie, and pass it along to the following requests.
Is there any alternative? should I do this in a different way? would you
consider applying a patch developed by me that enables http basic authentication
in /etc/acf/acf.conf so I can simply do the equivalent of curl -X POST -u
<username>:<pass> https://... without the need of handling cookies?
