How to retrieve the client secret¶
Option #1: Do nothing
The library wil automatically retrieve the client secret on following the steps at Options #2.
Option #2: From the application `env.js`
Retrieve the CLIENT_SECRET before running the script otherwise you will get a 401 Unauthorized Access. The latest CLIENT_SECRET can be found at [https://my.tado.com/webapp/env.js](https://my.tado.com/webapp/env.js). It will look something like this:
Option #3: From the developer mode
An alternative way to get your CLIENT_SECRET is to enable the Developper Mode when logging in and catch the Headers. You will find the form data like this :
client_id: tado-web-app client_secret: fndskjnjzkefjNFRNkfKJRNFKRENkjnrek grant_type: password password: MyBeautifulPassword scope: home.user username: email@example.com
Then you just have to get the value in the attribute client_secret. You will need it to connect to your account through Tado APIs. The client_secret never dies so you can base your script on it.
