Right now I need a reverse proxy setup just for using the dev.to API. I use elm on the frontend and just compile a static site consisting of an
bundle.js and make requests on the frontend as required. I would like to have something like a public read only token though so that I could send frontend XHR requests directly to the API and can thus remove the extra step of having a seperate reverse proxy setup.
I reached out to the DEV Community Team on the 19/06/2021 and they liked the idea but suggested opening this topic for conversation here for the community to provide feedback on this.
I was thinking of something along the lines of the anon key that supabase exposes for such use cases as the best example of what I am looking for. Basically something that just lets me use the API to read data without worrying about exposing the key to mallicious users who mess with admin settings or something.
Happy to discuss further in the comments if there are any open questions regarding the suggestion, otherwise please either upvote or comment your ideas related to this topic below, thanks!
