Glad you were able to find a solution that worked for you.

Re: Feature Requests

I tried your plugin to substitute FantasticWeather. But I can't get any data. This is probably because my API uses OAuth 2.0:

Is there any way you can implement this?

Thank you

I took a quick look at the API docs and it looks like that service should work with the existing plugin. Are you using the "Bearer" authentication type?

Re: Feature Requests

Yes I tried, but it seems that I have to get the token first and it expires. Not sure how to automate this.

Sorry, I should've been more clear. I should have asked if you were using the "Bearer" auth type instead of the "Token" auth type.

Have you tried the API with the Token auth type?

Re: Feature Requests

I do not have a token url.

I only have:
CONSUMER KEY
CONSUMER SECRET

Since I only have 50 request per day my testing capacities are limited. :mrgreen:

Re: Feature Requests

Understood. I didn't write that particular authentication method into the plugin (it was added by @berkinet), but in looking over the code, the plugin asks for the token to be provided by the server and then submits the API call with "?access_token=XXXXXXX" to the end of the source URL. So if the token auth method within the plugin is going to work (it may not work), then the settings would be something like:

URL/Path: "https://URL that requests the actual data you want" (no quotes)

Method: Token
Token URL: "https://URL to obtain the authentication token from the server" (no quotes)
Password: CONSUMER KEY or CONSUMER SECRET

It may be that the token auth method won't work for your source. If that's the case--and if the authentication method your source uses is a universal one--we can see about getting it added to the plugin. :)

Re: Feature Requests

This actually works in Terminal:

Code: Select all
curl -X POST \
  'https://api.srgssr.ch/oauth/v1/accesstoken?grant_type=client_credentials' \
  -H 'Authorization: Basic <"KEY:SECRET"MANUALLY CONVERTED TO base64 >' \
  -H 'Cache-Control: no-cache' \
  -H 'Content-Length: 0' \
  -H 'Postman-Token: 24264e32-2de0-f1e3-f3f8-eab014bb6d76'

curl -X GET \
  'https://api.srgssr.ch/srf-meteo/colors' \
  -H 'Authorization: Bearer MANUALLY ADDED RECEIVED_TOKEN' \
  -H 'Cache-Control: no-cache' \
  -H 'Postman-Token: 56128353-805e-4974-6689-5ef6d86e2d80'


The received token expires.

I don't know how to make it work with the plugin.

Re: Feature Requests

Thanks -- that's going to be helpful in figuring this out. I have some IRL commitments today but will look at this asap and see whether this can be done/added to the plugin.
