I assume you reverse engineered the android apk to obtain the backend API endpoints and then reconstructed their app.
Essentially, that’s right.
Since you’re using their logo and your web app looks very similar to their app, did you get permission to use this?
I didn’t get their permission when I started because I wasn’t sure how far I’d take it. I’ve been in communication with Freetrade recently. Some changes would be necessary for it to come out of private beta. Part of the reason for this thread is to gauge interest before bothering with that.
Also, would you consider making this an open source project?
As you can imagine, this was a significant amount fo work. I’ve considered open sourcing it to get assistance, but I’m still undecided.
Edit: Why did you proxy their API with your own AWS one
Only the login steps are proxied, for two reasons. First is to layer on an allowlist to control access. The second is because that particular API doesn’t return CORS headers, so browsers can’t call it directly.
how can we trust that you’re not doing something malicious.
I don’t want to proxy this request and would need Freetrade to make a small change so I didn’t have to. Trust is naturally one of my main concerns with this project.
