Edited 9/25 – added config option on adapter page.
I needed webthings to support some sort of authentication while maintaining compatibility with the gateway.
I have working jwt implementations of both the webthing-python and thing-url-adapter in these forks:
I have both projects setup so they can be installed with no config. Webthings-python is configured via json file in the file system. I added a configuration option on the thing url adapter config page to enter jwt’s. Use the format hostname:port jwt with a space between.
I also add a comment here https://github.com/WebThingsIO/thing-url-adapter/issues/91
