Project Remote: Report 4

Yet another update on the progress of the app!


Last week
Since the last update it has been all about getting the communication with the server working. There have been lots of speed bumps during this transition, but most of the problems have been resolved and there should not be more than a few days of work left before the app can remotely change the configuration of other Stoffi clients.

Challenges
Packaging the requests to the REST-api correctly so that the server would accept them. I ran into a lot of problems when trying to POST or PUT data to the server while signing the request with my acquired authentication token.

This Week
The upcoming week I will be RESTing by the beach in Alanya, Turkey ;). I will catch up the following week by finishing the remaining networking and starting with the GUI.
