xkcd API / https

Postby codefoundry » Mon Oct 03, 2016 9:43 pm UTC

The xkcd API is available over HTTPS protocol with TLS encryption.

Code: Select all

{"month": "4", "num": 1671, "link": "", "year": "2016", "news": "", "safe_title": "Arcane Bullshit", "transcript": "", "alt": "Learning arcane bullshit from the 80s can break your computer, but if you're willing to wade through arcane bullshit from programmers in the 90s and 2000s, you can break everyone else's computers, too.", "img": "http:\/\/imgs.xkcd.com\/comics\/arcane_bullshit.png", "title": "Arcane Bullshit", "day": "22"}

Unfortunately, the resulting JSON object still contains a link to an image over HTTP, causing various clients to download the comics unencrypted. Could you please fix this?

Kind regards,
