Originally, I tried to post an ajax request from my client side to a third party url, but it seems that the browser have security issues with that. I thought about sending an ajax to the server side, from there to send a GET request to the third party, get the response and send it back to the client side. How can I do that with flask?
requests module (much nicer than using
urllib2) and then define a route which makes the necessary request – something like:
import requests from flask import Flask app = Flask(__name__) @app.route('/some-url') def get_data(): return requests.get('http://example.com').content
Depending on your set up though, it’d be better to configure your webserver to reverse proxy to the target site under a certain URL.
