Validating against Scratch servers

Is it possible that you could let me use the script for validating usernames and passwords against Scratch for my website?

Certainly. (once I get FTP working, the stupid program crashed)
In PHP:

<?php
if(stristr(file_get_contents('http://scratch.mit.edu/api/authenticateuser?username=' . $someusername . '&password=' . $somepassword), 'false')) {
     echo 'Wrong';
     die;
}
?>

Just the URL:

http://scratch.mit.edu/api/authenticateuser?username=SOMEUSERNAME&password=SOMEPASSWORD

Re: Validating against Scratch servers

Thanks.
In the credits, I'll give you guys credit for that.

Do you have to md5 the password?
Cause I tried it on mine, and with the real password it said false and a fake password said false.

Are you sure? It appeared to work when you are registering, and I just checked it again with my username!
The following code did work.

http://scratch.mit.edu/api/authenticateuser?username=jvvg&password=*****

Re: Validating against Scratch servers

I found why.
Your password cannot contain symbols.  Only letters and numbers.
That would explain my difficulty signing up and my inability to log in to Clutter.

wait, shouldn't it be

<?php
if(stristr(file_get_contents('http://scratch.mit.edu/api/authenticateuser?username=' . $someusername . '&password=' . $somepassword),'false', TRUE) == FALSE) {
}

because otherwise it would always return false?

Re: Validating against Scratch servers

SJRCS is right, Jacob-- you forgot a !

The correct boolean expression is
!stristr(file_get_contents('http://scratch.mit.edu/api/authenticateuser?username=' . $someusername . '&password=' . $somepassword), 'false')

Re: Validating against Scratch servers

I program a lot better when I have Notepad++ and I'm actually testing my code. I may have also meant to put a die; statement in there or something.

Yay! Fixed quick quote, it now should work with everything! smile

If a message had an & (ampersand) or 'single quotes', then the quick quote didn't work. I fixed it now.

<?php

if(!stristr(file_get_contents('http://scratch.mit.edu/api/authenticateuser?username=' . $username . '&password=' . $password), 'false'){

I know I got something obvious wrong, just can't place it.  sad

You're missing a closing parenthesis

Re: Validating against Scratch servers

I updated the above code, so it should be correct now.
