I have an app that is RESTful where there is a CMS side and an API side
using the same RESTful services, controllers, methods , etc. The issue
that the CMS requires traditional login (through restful_authentication)
API client requests would need to use HTTP BASIC AUth or something
How are people solving this challenge with authenticating users to
app via the web and via REST client differently to accomplish this? I
thinking of going the API Key route and authenticating individual
applications but wasnt sure the best approach.
