Thanks a lot for your help guys and sorry for the false alarm, maybe the plugin in Github should have this warning. I know that is a dumb mistake and most of web developers may be aware of it but just in case.
How would you go about logging in programmatically? Is there a sessions api URL or something similar?
@babaggeii What is your purpose once you log in this way? I can think of a couple ways, but it depends on what you are trying to do...
@mootzville There are categories that are only visible to admins. I want to grab the data from the api and use it in a separate app.
Is it necessary to log in to do this? Maybe you can just ask the db for the info and pass that to your app?
I use mongo, so for that I might:
@mootzville I guess I could do that, but I was hoping for the much easier and safter method of using the API. With the plans for the write API, we wanted to build our app around it, so that method is certainly preferable.
@babaggeii The write API would contain support for API keys (and later on, access tokens), so there are plans to allow the write API to expose user-specific routes using the same user auth system as well.
