suggestions for redirecting https -> http and back


(Sean Felipe Wolfe) #1

Hello !

I recently purchased a .app web domain which requires all traffic be https.
However I'm working on a project which access an api which only serves http
(http://football-data.org). This is causing mixed content errors.After a
bit of research, I am thinking to

Oops, sorry... okay back to the email ...

So, I recently purchased an .app web domain which requires all traffic be
https. However I'm working on a project which access an api which only
serves http (http://football-data.org). This is causing mixed content
errors.

After a bit of research, I am thinking to add a microservice to my site,
such that a) my main app calls the local server on a different url, and b)
that url is served by a different app, a microservice which will consume
the https request and make a separate http call to the football-data API,
receive the http response, convert back to https and serve the request. A
bit complicated, but it seems like the best solution on the web side.

A couple questions -- one, does this sound like the right approach? If so
two, would this be a good library to use for the microservice?

Any suggestions or experience would be greatly appreciated. Thanks !

Hello,

I think football-data.org actually supports https request. I tried to
access both their homepage (https://www.football-data.org/) and some
resources (https://api.football-data.org/v2/competitions/ and
https://api.football-data.org/v2/players/44/matches) through https, and it
works.

Hahaha .... I think this is the software equivalent of ... "did you check
if it's plugged in" ??
