[tahoe-dev] CORS for web API

Hi, new here...

I am able to use the web API from my browser app just fine when the URL for
tahoe is the "same origin" as my app.

I would like to be able to use my tahoe server in a "cross origin" [1] way,
i.e. no matter what host my app is launched from, I'd like it to use any
tahoe server so configured for cross-origin requests.

Has anyone implemented this?

Looking at:


...I can see how to do this with twisted.

In the tahoe source it looks like the appropriate request renderers in
allmydata/web would need:

1. to be modified to include the response headers
2. a new render_OPTIONS method to satisfy CORS "preflight" requests.
