Been using Cores for a year - love 'em in my projects. Waiting for my Photons to ship (hope that’s soon!). In the Core, you couldn’t do outbound HTTPS calls because of RAM limitations (HTTPS is only available to/from the Spark Cloud). Given the larger RAM in the Photon (128KB), does this mean the Firmware will now support outbound HTTPS to other sites?
I am aware of the recent (awesome) new feature around Webhooks. Even so… I do not think this replaces the desire to just directly make HTTPS calls from the device. Any input/info on this? Or maybe you think Webhooks are the one true way to handle this, even on the Photon? Didn’t see this Q asked elsewhere on the Community, so apologies if it was buried somewhere else.
Related, I am pushing data from my Core/Photon to a local Raspberry Pi node.js server on my LAN, but I want to secure that communication. I am aware of this proposed solution (http://community.spark.io/t/aes-encryption-demo-and-secure-tcpclient-usage/6092/7), but I’d rather just make an HTTPS call to my Raspberry Pi server and save myself the hackery on encrypting the TCP socket.
