Opensourcing CSDb

2020 has arrived, time to opensource CSDb.

Contributors could submit PR with improvements, patches, bug-fixes, features etc.
The "mighty" moderators (with Perff) can approve PRs and merge to production. Easy.

Let's use community powers to finally fix this mess. We deserve the best looking and working C64 community/preservation site ever.

Throw some stones please.

Somehow these threads remind me a lot about the various VICE whining threads.

IE: open-sourcing doesn't solve the problem. There'd still be noone willing to help =P

At least i would like to help out with a proper oauth2 implementation or at least to enhance/fix the current website auth API implementation perff did some years ago.
Try here

Yeah, thats what i meant by helping to fix it.
The code just calls perffs api and that tells me you are not logged in.. which is obviously wrong then

Did you try to login via the blue button and login form? At least it works for me then after entering my csdb credentials and shows my csdb information

You can, try with fake data if you don't trust me and watch the network console in the browser to see where the request goes: No data is transferred to my domain, it's all transferred directly to the csdb domain API urls.
I use the same example JS code that perff provides in his docs.
Again: A proper oauth2 with dedicated login form from the csdb site itself would help here

The general rule is to not enter login data anywhere, except the original site. Period.

Yes, absolutely correct!
Another reason to have a proper oauth2 implementation with a login form directly from csdb.dk as initially suggested :D

The current implementation by perff unfortunately does it the unsecure way as you pointed out. That's probably also the reason why it seems no c64 related website every really implemented it. (also i didn't, that was just a testpage anyway)..let's stop the discussion about this now. :)

It's better if you PM Perff about it.
