I would like to create a small application just for me to log in to Stack Overflow and see my profile.
The issue is that if I understand the documentation correctly, I have to first approve my application for myself (optionally provide username/password if not logged in yet) and then every time I want to do something authenticated I have to go for access token to https://stackoverflow.com/oauth/access_token where I have to provide my username and password in case I am not logged in.
Can this step be done automatically using REST API? So I don't have to manually pass username and password to the webpage?
I would like to provide username/password to my app (I have already approved my application in my profile) and then it would just post my username/password to verify that I have approved my app and get token automatically.
Is this possible?
