Decouple WebUI and API ports

Post by sprinkles »

Would be awesome if we could decouple the Web UI and the API ports, for example have the UI on 8080 and the API available on 8081.

Clearly this could be done via port forwarding, but the goal is to exclusively expose the API on a port (and not the UI components).

End state is to expose an API port that only allows NZB upload, while maintaining the UI on another.

Well, the UI mostly relies on the API anyway. So what would really be the benefit?
Security etc remains the same, since the API endpoint still allows the UI stuff if connected with the right API key.
