> The webserver listening in on localhost:19421 should implement a REST API

Is this server started by Zoom? In order to implement an endpoint, they’d have to ship a server along with the client. And this server would always be running? Is this not overkill for such a small feature (being able to click a link)

They already ship a server along with the client. It's already always running.

The author is explaining how they could have done it more securely. I think everyone here including the author would agree it's a ridiculous solution for this "feature".

Yes, it is overkill. And insecure. All that to avoid a confirmation box.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
