So now that the OF-migration-dust is settling, lets talk about some OHM TLC!

Over the past year, Xyon has developed the OHM API (in Rust). It's hooked to the old OHM front-end, and as we all know it's not working very well (due to the OHM API being new, and the front-end being oooold). Now that we have the new board, we can resume work on this front, especially since we want/need to integrate the two.

The current version of the OHM API was build against the old board. We need to figure out a new auth flow (a real one), using the XF api that we have now. That'll make authentication a lot more robust.
We also want to revive the OHM threads, which should also be done by the OHM API.

Besides the OHM API, we need a new front end. Currently, I'm developing one with React and Bootstrap. It's still in early concept phase, but it gives us a chance to figure out what we need from the OHM API.

Designing front-ends isn't really my thing. So anyone who wants to help develop the thing, please let us know and we'll set you up! (please note that all communications regarding this project is done through Discord. Consider joining if you haven't done so already :))

I have a 404 error. Therefore, all of the add-ons should be republished in the forum.

If you do hit a 404, I would appreciate you making a post here containing:

1. The URL you navigated to
2. The referrer that sent you there or gave you the URL

This will help me troubleshoot what's going on and what needs fixing.

I typed "orbithangar.com" for the first time since my last visit in vBulletin forum and showed 404. However, when I googled "orbit hangar", then I was able to enter the OHM. Since then, I am able to enter the OHM even I type "orbithangar.com" in Google Chrome.

Apologies for my bad English.

I did the same thing. This is why I can access OHM. I think the sysop should redirect the http URL to https.

I'm intending to spend some quality time with OHM in this coming week and get authentication working alongside the new forum engine (which gives us more scope to integrate than vBulletin did). In conjunction with this will be some work with the CAPCOM bot in Discord to help verify users there too.

I know @IronRain is hard at work on the replacement frontend for the site, so I'm not sinking much effort into the temporary frontend it has now - it will be replaced in short order.

Thank you all for bearing with us while we work through this tricky migration and development phase.

Authentication to OHM is now entirely deferred to Orbiter Forum, which means that you should be able to authenticate there with your OF login details, and it should just work, pick up password changes, etc.

Please let me know if you encounter any issues.

Me too. Please do something! Unpublishing add-ons would cause a pressure on the OHM database!

I also want to have the "Soumya-8974's add-on" rendering a la vBulletin forum.

Hello and thank you for your answer
So I am logged in with my username which is the same as on this forum....

Please let me know if you encounter any issues.
When I click on "delete" I have the window that opens:
" delete confirmation for "<add-on>"
" are you sure (
etc)"

then I click on "delete" and I have "working" but nothing happens, even if I wait for a long time...
The window remains as it is .... :unsure:
