    Connection string encryption

    Encrypting a string or password is easy, harder is how you protect the key used for the encryption. Angus

    Connection string encryption

    Although do anticipate that any hacker will be able to see the plain text when you decrypt in memory.

    Connection string encryption

    When he submit credentials ( for example email and user password) over post request to api server will validate credentials and if true server will return JSON token, that token will be stored on users phone. you can set token expiration time for example 30 min and that token will be valid only for that particular user for next 30 minutes... After retriving token you will be submitting that token for every future request and server will walidate it.. SO basically he is talking to web server, web server validate data and talks to DB. It is way more secure.. Password for DB is stored on web server and code logic for talking to DB is on web server so users dont know DB password or logic how web server communicated to DB Next security level that he could add is to ( if web app - web server and DB are hosted on the same machine ) disable remote login, or if they are split to two different servers he can just allow his IP web server to talk and retrieve data from DB.. It is almost never good practice to talk directly to DB from almost any app .. Sry if i was offtopic

    Connection string encryption

    You are storing information to connect to remote database fore example MySql ? It is not good to store any password related stuff in any application, have you consider making API and perform DB request over it ?

    Connection string encryption

    You may encrypt it with Rijndael (AES). Where are several libraries wich support it.

    Animating TListViewItem

    Well don't be so afraid. I think you can use a TFrame (somewhere TFrame is like a style) for all that filling stuff. I think it was the Paul Toth approach.
  7. Hi, Some might already know Delphinus. But for those who don't i thought i make a little introduction post, to have a thread for discussion, as I never made one for the international Delphi-Praxis. Questions are always welcome. Delphinus is an opensource Packagemanager for Delphi, which I started in 2015. It has support for Delphi XE and newer. In addition to an IDE integration for package-management, Delphinus comes with a commandline, too. This has the benefit of having a single interface for managing multiple IDEs or run setup-scripts automatically. Currently, packages are provided through Github by preparing a repo to appear in a special Github-Query Delphinus uses to detect packages (See wiki link below). For optimal use, you should add a OAuth-Token to the Delphinus-Config(See wiki link below). Otherwhise you'll hit rate-limits. Offline installation from a folder is provided through the IDE-UI(Folder Symbol). Adding support for creating local folder based repositories for mirroing is planned. Delphinus packages have support for: Copying (source) files Compiling and (if Designtime) installing BPLs Compiling and installing IDE-Experts setting up Search/Browsing path Dependencies to other Delphinus-Packages Optionally, BPLs and Experts may be included as precompiled binary, if your project is closed source. Packages are installed per IDE. I'm working on per project installations.
