Mobile app can't handle servers behind BASIC authentication #29

I'm running a server proxied behind BASIC authentication. I can connect and synchronize with the plugin on the desktop, but any attempt to change the server on the app turns the server name red and fails to persist.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Have a server installed behind BASIC authentication
  2. In the app, go to the settings
  3. Change the server to the URL of the server in point 1

Expected behaviour

A dialog asking for the authorization credentials of the server should be presented, and if correct credentials are entered, the new server settings should be persisted.

Actual behaviour

App fails to recognize server, and fails to change the server settings.

Client app information

Android, installed via Fdroid or Google Play (same behavior)

Other info

I suspect the mobile app just doesn't have a way to authenticate against protected servers.

Hi @serussell, the xBrowserSync client currently does not support connecting to xBrowserSync APIs that require authentication to connect. I'll mark this as an enhancement for now, though I think this might be more of a version 2 feature depending on interest.
