Consuming HTTP APIs in the SAFE Browser


#1

Looking forward to the future of the SAFE Network in general, there are going to be a lot of resources still in HTTP land that would potentially be useful/needed in SAFE apps whether that is RESTful APIs or what not. Is there a way to make HTTP requests within an app in the SAFE browser?

No, the browser supplied by MaidSafe will focus on safety / privacy. There may be 3rd party browsers or browser plugins that will provide functionality like that.

You can’t do http requests but you can use RESTful style apps with SAFE Network via fetch() in the browser with a suitable compatibility library. This was democrated at SAFE DevCon with the Solid Plume app:
