11:55 keiserr hi does one send a json object to a rest service? got this like of ids I need to send, trying like this {"myid":["bla", "bla2","bla3"]}, doesn't seem to work, i know this isn't really directly rest related, but maybe someone has an idea here?

15:54 dougquaid I've got a mysql database that I'm trying to write an API for. I think I want to use Flask to write a RESTful API but I'm concerned about authentication. Is OAuth a good way to handle auth for a RESTful API?
15:55 mamund keiserr: not sure if you're still here, but a solid approach is to use a structured media type to send data back and forth.
15:55 mamund for REST-y implementations, there is no shared object model between client and server but there *is* a shared messagte model.
15:56 mamund typically, the formats are HAL, Siren, Collection+JSON, etc.
15:56 mamund app/xml and app/json don't have enough structure on their own but are the basis for creating structured types.
15:56 mamund think about the diff between HTML and XML (structured, unstructured).

17:05 whartung You don't want OAuth dougquaid, you want OpenID Connect
17:08 dougquaid Isn't OpenID connect where you log in using your google/facebook/other account?
17:09 whartung The problem with OAuth alone is that it's totally underspecified. The OAuth "standard" out of the box is effectively worthless, esepcially for interoperability. OpenID Connect fills in the missing pieces on top of the model proposed by OAuth.
17:10 whartung And, sure, you could use OpenID Connecti with those services, but you certainly don't have to.
17:10 whartung If you're connecting through services (vs your browser), then I'm content with BASIC over SSL
