Motivation

Interacting directly with Microlink API from frontend side is one of the most common scenarios.

However, it could be a risk security scenario if you are exposing your x-api-key, being possible that anyone can steal it and consume your API quota.

For preventing that, this tiny microservice allows you interact with Microlink API without compromising your credentials.

Usage

Deploy this microservice, setting up the necessaries environment variables.

After that, every time you need to interact with Microlink API, just call the microservice URL instead.

If you are using mql, setup it as endpoint parameter:

const mql = require('@microlink/mql')

mql('https://microlink.io', {
  endpoint: 'https://proxy.now.sh'
})
