So I am a developer, experienced in web design mostly but dabble in Electron and ReactNative. So today I was bored and came up with the idea of a desktop app that can help you manage and install Rigs of Rods mods and content. I kind of had the idea of making it kinda like a Github for RoR content. I decided to make a post to ask for community input on my project and to ask is there any type of API for the current Mod Repository.

No API really exists for the repository. All files are downloaded by a simple request with a security token. ex.
Code:
https://forum.rigsofrods.org/downloads.php?do=file&id=(some id)&act=down&actionhash=(generated hash)

So really the only thing that downloads the mods is a forum generated token and mod id?

So I figured I could just make a wrapper window to authenticate users to generate the hash token. Does anybody have any ideas how I could actively sync with the Repository to populate the list view?
