API From the Browser CORS issues - What is the workaround?

It seems that the meistertask api doesn't support cross origin requests from browsers and we get CORS errors when we try to use the api from a browser (Testing a React App)

Any workarounds for this? We are thinking of creating our own proxy but it seems like an awful lot of work

    Oh... I can't close posts


    Well for posterity... the issue was a typo on the url and we where hitting the main meistertask website instead of the api endpoint. Hitting the /api endpoint returns the correct headers and can be called from any origin.

    Hey @Andrew Lapidus no problem. I figured out the issue was the endpoint being called itself. Once we fixed the endpoint we where hitting we where not having any more CORS issues.
