RE: JWT Authentication for Write API from Mobile App / Web App
@julian Thanks for the clarification.
In other words, I cannot have a mobile app to create topics in a nodebb instance without having a server component to create JWT tokens. Can you confirm this ?
JWT Authentication for Write API from Mobile App / Web App
Typically In JWT, a token is returned from the server after a successful authentication . You would use the token for all other successive requests.
I have integrated apis with client apps through JWT in the past as well. It is the same approach taken.
Is this the approach followed in Nodebb ?
The write api plugin readme seemingly suggest a different approach
I might be wrong here ..but this sounds like a very insecure way. Why would I reveal the secret in the client apps to generate a token. (Also I didnt see any jwt.sign method in this plugin or in the nodebb core, so it is definitely expecting the token to be generated from client ).
Thanks in advance
RE: Private Posts
It has numerous applications from IT support portal, learning communities , healthcare communities, ombudsman group in enterprises. This can bring you lot of customers who looks for 1 stop shop for all community managment. You can highlight this feature in your site as well.
I follow Discourse and have seen them implementing it very recently among lot of requests (In fact they have done it in a complex way within groups functionality). Nodebb plugin approach of using categories IMHO is the right way.
I understand that you would love to do it as a custom service. I feel you would get more visibility if you do it as a community plugin. Since you have already have it for older versions, I feel it is wise to do it for the new versions as well. I would urge you to reconsider the upgrade path for the support plugin.
RE: Is there a roadmap? Badges, Theme Rocket, etc?
@psychobunny any updates on the badges now that we have 0.5.3. I have tested both discourse and nodebb. I have to decide soon. Any timeline ?
