  2. Hi, it still needs manual authentication through the browser. The goal would be to have that gateway authenticating by itself.

    I managed to get it done by using Selenium. Since I have to run the script on a schedule, it does not need any container to host it.

    I guess you can still use your container and provide a side script to login automatically, so people can run that script on a schedule.

    My goal was to provide a way to run this headless, with ability to authenticate from anywhere on the go (phone mainly). I don't like the idea of storing my credentials to IB anywhere and project aiming to automate login are already here (IBeam, ibcalpha).

    This also does not need a container, but was made as a part of a multi-container project. Containerisation simplifies this, makes it easy to maintain/update/monitor and gives ability to run on basically any system.
