remoteStorage is an HTTP API! The only way it’s browser-oriented is the OAuth implicit grant, which returns the access token in the
#... fragment of the URL.
Yeah, it’s unfortunate that the more document-y things like hood.ie are mostly focused on providing a backend to frontend developers, not bring-your-own-storage.
But I have an idea! CouchDB (or pouchdb-server, same thing but in Node) is pretty much the HTTP-based document DB. It’s great. All we need is a way to discover a user’s CouchDB instance (a link
rel) and a way to authenticate to it using IndieAuth.
P.S. huh, Bridgy Publish inserts the Twitter username into replies automatically?
sad that dropbox and google drive didn’t work out. i have to admit, though, i glazed as soon as i read “All we need is a way to discover a user’s CouchDB instance.” how about amazon’s cloud drive thing? most actual users will have an amazon account. or microsoft skydrive?
