Discussing Xano Authentication Process and Webflow Integration

This meeting between the State Changers was intended to solve a programming issue regarding the setup of headers for a form that posts data to Xano from Webflow. The main focus was on how to appropriately include an authentication token in the headers to make it applicable to all interactions with Xano. The initial problem was incorrect placement of the token in the wrong part of the code.

The solution involved moving the line where the variable 'token' is defined, from being added to 'data', to a section where headers are set. This was executed by cutting out the line setting the token in localStorage and pasting it within the postData function, thus making it relevant to all authenticated responses. Additionally, an 'authorization' field was introduced to the headers, set as a 'Bearer' followed by the value of the 'token', which is essentially a unique user identification string. This alteration effectively indicates that the sender (the client) has been authenticated. The conversation displays the participants' high proficiency in Javascript and highlights a practical issue when working with APIs such as Xano and how to solve it by effectively managing authentication tokens.
